so i was sitting on the deck with my friend Delee, and drinking a non alcoholic Becks Beer, and i can see my son playing with a group of kids, they had all been at my sons best friends birthday party and it was just ending.
anyways one kid is on a bike, and another was on a scooter. my sons scooter.
fine, whatever my son shares with other kids, but then i see him trying to get his scooter back he asks nicely, the kid just keeps going, and sean asks him again, and im watching this from our yard on our deck, spying on them, yes SPYING.
and here this kid and he wont give my kid his scooter back although he was asking nicely, well my kids crying at this point, and my mommyness roared.
this kid starts taking off on my kids scooter and my son is crying, and ........
"YOU WANNA GIVE MY KID HIS SCOOTER BACK PLEASE?!"
i was furious. the kid stops in his tracks, unaware that seans mom had been watching, and he gives my kid his scooter back.
sean said by to his friend, and came home. i tried to talk to him about it but he brushed it off "that guy was just being a jerk mom"
my son turned 7 in march, his friend turned 9 today and the kid picking on him was about 9 too.
i dont *think* i over reacted. and im proud of myself, because i really in the heat of the moment wanted to cuss that kid out.
