Re: WDYT. Was I too harsh?

  • Did she take a page from the Brittney Spears parenting play book?

  • Yes, you were.  She admitted it was a mistake and she (apparently) feels horrible.  I doubt she'll do something like that again.

    But the self-righteousness in that post is unbelievable.  She made a mistake.  She learned from it.  She won't do it again.  No need to beat her up about it.

    Judgmental much? I have accidentally turned my baby monitor off in my sleep on more than one occasion - she probably thought she would have heard him if he was waking up.

    I've turned it off once and turned it down to the lowest volume once -- both in my sleep!  Glad I'm not the only one!

    I don't even turn the damn thing on anymore. The boy has a set of lungs on him. He is down the stairs and down the hall and we have NO problem hearing him without it! One of these days I'll be so sleep deprived I'll sleep through his screams...

  • Where is our resident judgy mcjudgerson? Cyn - what say you? Was OP too harsh in her response? What's your take on the other OP? Would this fly on your fb?

  • Uhm, yeah.  I agree that what occurred was completely avoidable.  I don't think I used the swing for DD at 6 months of age because she was too mobile and could get out of it.  However, mistakes happen - no matter what the situation and no matter how watchful you think you are being.

    Yes, but I'm sure you already know that or you wouldn't have asked.

    I disagree.  I think she wanted us all to swoop in and validate her.

    I dunno... Wasn't she the one that called people's babies ugly?  I think she just responded that way for shock value.

    That's why I said what I did. I remember her as being a sh*t stirrer, and I do believe it was her that said some of the babies on the board was ugly.

    But I'm not sure what her original post was about.  Something to do with weight, I presume.

    Pretty sure she's the ugly baby caller outer, and there was something else, but I can't remember what. I remember that sn in a negative way, too.
