Ok, I am not sure this is a bitch exactly, but a query. I was in Value Village today and there was a woman in her 20s with a newborn, who was crying his head off. You could hear him around the store. The mom just rocked him in the stroller while checking out the wares. Several people, mostly women, came up to hear to ask if her baby was OK. She said "Yes, he's just crying." I noticed several women shaking their heads in judgement. Now this mom seemed to have it together, at least in appearances. Eventually she just left the store. As a mother myself, I learned not to listen to advice from other women. I raise my kid with common sense and she's well taken care of. Do these women have a right to go up to this mom and question her motherly abilities? I thought they should be minding their own business. Babies do cry afterall.

A mom, too
