"That's disgusting! You should really bathe your child!"

 Is what I was told about DD's birthmark today at the grocery store.

We were in line at the grocery store and a there was a woman behind me with her DD. The girls know each other from school so they were talking. I noticed the other mom staring at my DD's neck and asked her if she had a problem. She says "Yes, that is disgusting and you need to bathe her!" WTF?!?! "Umm...no! Thats her birthmark you moron!" was my reaction. "Well its dusgusting looking, maybe you should see a doctor about getting it removed" she said. Again, WTF?!?

When were walking out the store I was livid! Luckily my DD is confident and tells me "Mommy, don't be mad. She's just mad cause she's not as lucky as me and was born with cheetah print" LOL I always tell her that she's my wild cat/rock star, that her birth mark is proof cause it looks a bit like cheetah print.

Now honestly, does that look like dirt to anyone? Maybe cause I know what it is, is why it doesn't look like dirt to me?

Doesn't look like dirt to me. If it were, how would she get it shaped like that in one little area and nowhere else?
