I'm not the judging type at ALL but it really makes my blood boil when older mother's *think*they know everything.
so i'm at the store just looking at baby food comparing prices nothing out of the ordinary and this older mom approaches me talking about how younger mothers today choose the easy way out buying baby food instead of feeding the babies homefood. She kept goin and going about how much healthier it is(like I don't know that) and so on.
After she was done I told her my mother raise me to respect my elders so with all respect I'm going to tell you this since you worry so much about what young mothers feed our babies. You should start worrying about what your feeding yourself because by the looks of it healthy is not your style.
the fact that we are young mothers doesn't make us dumb mothers. We know what's best for our kids.

Oh my!!! Was she like slightly overweight? Medium overweight or super obesely overweight? I'm just curious here. You actually handled that better than I would have!! I would have probably said, "You sure do assume a lot for not even knowing me!! How do you know that I'm not picking up baby food for a friends child?" Or, "If I wanted your advice, I would have asked for it!!" Did she say anything to you after you pretty much told her off?? YOU ROCK!! So glad you stuck up for yourself! If that had happened to my MIL, she would have said nothing to the lady and just walked away! She doesn't like confrontations at all!

Let's just say she looked like she was eating REALLY good lol..the reason why I let her talk that long was because I was just amazed how rude some people are these days. After I told her my toughts I walked away. She was pissed off and kept talking as I walked away. So I looked back and kind of yelled outloud *make sure you buy some Diet drpepper to go with that burger*...wrong I know but it made me laugh.
