Insulting my intelligence

We know everyone and their mother has an opinion on how you parent your child but its the stupid things they say that insult your intelligence that makes you want to punch them in the face but you are too dumbfounded by their comment to react fast enough. You are too busy asking yourself, “Did they really just say that?”
I just love when someone tells me to watch my own kids. Like when they are standing near a pool and I am clearly staring right at the child and they say, “watch him!” What did you think I was doing? Daydreaming about the pool boy with a margarita in my hand??? Or when I put the kids in the car and I’m asked if I buckled them in. Wtf else did you think I was doing when I put them in there?? I even get the same comment when I put the kid in the high chair. I mean do you think I want my child to get hurt? What are you thinking when you say that? Do you realize you are insulting my parenting?? And even if i decided to put my own kid in a high chair without buckling him or her, that is my prerogative. The funny part is that I’m on my third kid and I’m still getting the same comments. I’m at the point where I can actually say shut the fuck up. I have more kids than you and yours are not perfect!!!! Unfortunately, there are some people you are just not allowed to speak that way to. Maybe I should ask them every year if they’ve watered the tomatoes and see how they feel. Urgh!!!!!!!!!!!!!
