Day nineteen of 30 posts in 30 days
So I got harrassed by my sister the other day because on our way into Chick-Fil-A I got the diaper bag out of the car and starting walking towards the front door.
“BWAH HA HA HA! You look like you’re carrying a purse!” She cackled while my 17 year old niece chimed in affirmativly.
I responded, “”Well… I don’t give two living crap balls what any body else thinks. I’m not trying to impress anyone!”
About thirty minutes later, a woman in Chick-Fil-A cracked a “joke” in my direction regarding my “purse-like” diaper bag.
“Your bag goes well with your outfit!” She smirked.
The friends she was with all laughed and I kind of shrugged my shoulders and said, “Hey… you gotta do what you gotta do ya know!”
Her comments kind of pissed me off actually. Unfortunatly, being a somewhat prideful person, I deal with some issues being the lesser of the two breadwinners in our family in addition to being the more full time caregiver at this point in my life. While I know she was just trying to be funny, I wondered if she was almost looking down on me!? Probably not… but my insecurities started to get the better of me.
Do I need one of these?
Instead of this?
Hey… how’s it goin’?
Whatcho lookin’ at ya freakin’ freak?
Or… should I just keep on keepin’ on?
And maybe kick whoever makes a joke in my expense in the taint.
Alright… not only is Poop And Boogies the BEST named blog out there it’s also a very heartfelt and well written blog about one man’s “parent’s influence on him as a parent”.
PAB was quite honestly the first daddy blog that I happend across when I started this adventure of blogging. He’s good and you should check him out.
