Unsolicited advice

So yesterday I decided to take the kids to the new Family Dollar. I had forgotten my sling, so I had to take the lil man in with his car seat. Of course, he does not like his seat...so he proceeded to scream. Now normally, I would carry him, but I had all 4 of the kids with me, so it was a little difficult.

Now, this is actually the first time I have gotten a comment other then "you have your hands full" from anyone other then some family memebers (who will remain nameless, but they know who they are!). The EMPLOYEE was actually following me around, telling me to pick him up, that he is going to choke, and that I am being mean. Really lady? Wonder what she would have done if I pickd him up and handed him to her?! Would she have stopped telling me how to parent my children?

I wonder when it became OK for complete strangers...and employees of a store for that matter...to tell people what to do with their kids.

OK rant over!
