Ya know Ann, sometimes stuff just happens. While I was never a mother, I was a single parent. I didn't go into parenthood thinking it would happen, but it did. I find it frustrating that people without kids (like Ann) somehow feel that they know everything that goes into parenting and can lecture/moralize.

I'd get the same thing in the Navy too. One day my child care arrangements fell apart and I had to leave work ASAP to take care of it. I got into trouble and was lectured about parenthood up and down my chain of command by childless women. My charge nurse, supervisor, department head, and even Commanding Officer were all childless women.

I wanted to give them The Finger and educate their cluelessness, but with arrogance/ignorance so thick, why bother?
