And I'm Not At All Sorry
You know how you hear jokes about everybody fighting or making a scene at family events? Yeah yesterday it was me. Fiona was being fussy and every singe person in the room was yelling advise on how I should be handling it. That I could ignore but it soon progressed to telling me everything I was doing wrong and culminated in my uncle thinking he was funny (he has a knack for stepping way over lines) saying, "That's it you failed as a mom". My response, "You know what, BITE ME!" Everyone went silent and I turned to face the rest of the room and said, "You can all shut the hell up. None of you has any right to criticize my parenting skills." The rest of the evening they kept their opinions to themselves.
