My son is on vacation the next week. So yesterday when I took my son for a second walk of the day to the playground, He got kinda overtired and was having a meltdown hitting me, and bitting me, headbutting me when possible on my arm. Because he didn't want to have to walk back, it's like a half mile and he's 5. Normally he can do that walk but he was tired.
Today again it was later in the day and he woke up at 4am and he looked kind of tired and I didn't want to have the same thing happen so I took the stroller. Yes he is old enough to walk and I know this, but I didn't want him beating me up either for a half mile and I already knew he was tired. So we're walking back and he was happy in the stroller, and some woman screams from her car, "he's too big for a stroller" at that point i didn't even realize she was talking to me because she was like 20 feet away, then as she was pulling in the drive way- No blinker either, screamed "His feet work better you know!!" So I was kind of shocked and just kept walking, but kind of wanted to go back and explain that "I didn't want to get bit for half a mile and he has Autism and do you have a special needs child? I think your mouth is better closed ya know?" but as usual I just kept walking and didn't say anything. And I'm venting now... I kind of knew you all would understand.
