    Ughhh that chipper, condescending “Nope! This will be your time Mommy!” Seen that so many times. There’s not much compassion or room for discussion there.
    This is perfect.

We love comments, feedback and critique but mean or snarky comments will not be published. MUTHA moderates ALL comments, and we're a volunteer org, and that means they can be slow to post--please do not try and repost a comment unless it's been more than several days, we will get to it.
