Loony Mother

I met this girl recently less than 5 minutes into striking up a conversation, she was planning on leaving her son in my house for the weekend.

I was astounded. She was so flippant the whole matter that she may well have been speaking of dropping off meat in my freezer. I had to ask her if she did not have any concerns as to her son’s safety and specifically mentioned sexual molestation. Her watery response was that her son is old enough to speak and as such is able to speak up if he does not feel comfortable going back to a place he had been before. Yeah, right! Someone has clearly never read or heard about the psychology pedophiles use on children.

As far as she was concerned, it was a no-brainer. She would bring her son to meet my daughter and when coming she would pack a weekend bag for him. If her son and my daughter got along, she would simply leave the weekend bag there and go back home without him. Oh, and she meant that weekend. It was a Friday when I was talking to her so that was the very next day or that night.

I still can’t believe that such a thing was possible in this day and age and she went on to tell me I had hang-ups because I was a single parent. I don suffer no be small. Apparently, she and her husband wanted some alone time and although she had a nanny, the best way was to get her son out of the house completely. That was when I understood that it was a 2 for 1 deal. Nanny comes with the son. Ostentatiously to help in taking care of her son. Reading between the lines, I figured that she had exhausted her normal “helpers”. Maybe they had stopped taking her calls.

After the 15 minutes we spent talking, I decided that:

1. I will never let her “visit” my home.
2. She was looking for a free babysitter to foist her son and nanny on.
3. My daughter would never spend even an hour in her house as chic had disturbing ideas about parenting -who knows what sort of dangers she would expose my daughter to? And I will never go too. It may be some disease you can catch.
4. Chic was plain loony! Who puts a kid out there like that? With strangers. It is crazy.

5. Her husband must be crazy too.

Or am I really the one that is being uptight?


  1. NO just concerned about your own and that's natural

  2. No, you are not the woman being uptight. The woman sure is wacko.And what has single mother got to do with that. Wise move you made staying away from her.

  3. No you are not being uptight! You are just being a good concerned parent, and being a single mother has absolutely nothing to do with it!

  4. so i guess she is ok with him being abused just as long as he speaks up - right???? Can't figure dat one out!
    nope, u r uptight and alright

  5. What in the blazes! This is what i call real pikin miss road!

  6. Uptight?!! No girl, uptight would have been u giving her marching orders the minute u realised she was a nutjob!!

  7. Run baby run. How are you? It's been ages :-)
