Please remove your hand from my son, k?

Summer is in full swing at the pool.

Fun and splashing in the sun, right?

Well, sure…

Only, then I was visiting with a friend while lounging at the side of the pool, my BB playing close by and over wanders this little guy…he was probably 3 or so…

He was in up to his neck for sure.  I didn’t see his mama.

The boys were splashing and having a good time and this little guy topples face first into the water with no signs of getting up.

I grabbed the little guy and put him on his feet again, only he was gasping and looking kind of scared, so I picked him up and set him on the edge of the pool and told him we would find his mama.

His mama was a little ways away sitting on her ass getting some sun while her guy almost drowned!

She comes on over  and does she say thank you?  No ma’am!  She starts fussing at the boys about watching out when there are little kids around.  He was in WAY too deep and the boys were not being naughty or ornery at all.

She takes a turn with each of them.

Only then does she speak to her son and at the same time tells me he refuses to wear his floaty things.

BB is standing close by.

She then made a really big mistake.

She turns and gets right down in my baby’s face and starts fussing at him about being careful of the little kids and finishes with this, “do you understand me???”  very ugly tone and THEN grabbed his arm when he didn’t respond.

I would almost guarantee that she didn’t know he was mine.  Makes me even more mad…she’s gonna go after him because no one is around? 

BB is funny as in responds in unexpected ways at times.  He retracts into his shell when uncomfortable.  He often doesn’t do well talking with strangers when concerned at all.  NO WAY this lady was going to get anything out of him with her tone and space invasion and THEN to grab him?

I said, ” My son really doesn’t respond well to strangers.  Please do not touch him.”

Aren’t you proud of me?  I am REALLY proud of me.

She walks away muttering about how she understands he is allowed to be disrespectful blah blah blah.



Funny thing…since I saved her baby’s life?  He liked me…kept coming over to me…just a bit awkward for some icky mama:)

Love that.
