Dear Mom with the sick kid at the play place, please take your kid home!
Seriously, what in the hell were you thinking dragging your toddler to the community play area when they are clearly sick. What’s that you said, oh it’s just allergies. Bullsh*t! This kid has yellow crusties surrounding his eyes and giant green snot wads sitting on his upper lip.
For real, what were you thinking?! I see that you have two other kids in tow as you sit down to ice coffee with your girlfriends in your stylish outfit and perfect hair. Are you trying to tell me that you needed to get out of the house because having 3 kids is a lot of work and you just want some girl time? Well, you know what beauty queen, we all need some girl time! Doesn’t mean that we are inconsiderate enough to bring our sick child to play with all the other kids. You better believe you aren’t going to have any more girlfriends if it’s your kid that brings the plague to their family forcing them into 2 weeks of house arrest while they responsibly stay at home watching Daniel Tiger on repeat while wiping noses and tending to congested coughs.
Oh you came out to play for your non-sick kids? Oh well, please how rude of me. I guess those girlfriends you are chatting with aren’t caring enough to take your two other kids to play while you quarantine your one sick kid and pray to the gods that the rest of your family doesn’t get sick, too. Might be time to look for new friends.
As all of the other moms are grabbing their kids trying to keep them as far away from your snot monster as possible while wiping them down with sanitary wipe and try to figure out what other place they can take their kids, I can’t help but wonder how you had time to do your hair and makeup so perfectly that you look like a Pinterest tutorial image. But silly me, I guess the fact that you were inconsiderate enough to bring your infectious spawn to a public space shows me how much you probably care about your children over yourself.
But I don’t know what you are going through right now. I don’t care what you are going through in your personal life, you should be courteous enough to not bring your sick kid somewhere where he can get other children sick. You know how miserable it is for everyone when your kid is sick, why would you wish that upon your friends and fellow moms in your community. If you need to talk, pick up the damn phone or have your friends over after you put your kids to sleep and sanitized the dining room. I am positive they would rather drink wine without kids around then get coffee while having to keep one eye on their kids and not giving you their full attention.
So, for real mom with the snot nose brat running around the play place, do everyone a favor and go home.
