So, my Mom & I take the boys to Walmart for some stuff. We are loading them into the cart & these two girls about 20 years old are looking at bikinis. Out of the corner of my eye I notice them looking at Luke. So, I'm standing there doing whatever & I notice the one girl make a face & say "What's wrong wrong with him. Look at his eyes" & makes the slant look with her finger then they start laughing. Instinctively I say to them "You girls are so rude" well, neither one of them would look at me & they take off. Now, I am a hot head. I so badly wanted to take off after them & say that they are not my idea of beauty & ask if they would like for me to insult them to their face. But.... I didn't. I know we are going to encounter this. It's just that I knew the first time was going to be rough. I think he's the most gorgeous wonderful little person I have ever seen. It's just a shame that they are too ignorant to see it too. People are rude & I know that. It happens irregardless of your difference.... too heavy, too thin, just look "different". You name it.
Thanks Yvonne (Jaidynsmum) for my beautiful siggy!
I agree, Luke is gorgeous. I know we'll all encounter rude (ignorant) people and we want so much to protect our children from these people as much as possible. I'm not looking forward to the day our kids realize they are being made fun of. Like you said, people find fault in everyone. I'm sorry you have to deal with that. I won't lie, a part of me would love to hurt them like they have hurt us. But, it wouldn't solve anything. Still...it would make me feel sooo much better!
I am so sorry that you had to deal with such rude people. I know I hate it when people stare at me when one of my children are having a meltdown in the middle of a store. No one has made a rude comment to me yet but I know eventually it will happen.
