For whatever reason, I seem to get an occasional mean comment. I don't allow anonymous comments, but it doesn't matter, they just put in some name. Sometimes it really hurts my feelings. Sometimes I think they're loony tunes.
I recently got one on the post about lice-- don't worry, I deleted it-- I don't mean to make a big deal out of it. But it did make me a little concerned that maybe I was sending a message that I hadn't meant to send? I thought she was just loony tunes. But I can't bare the thought of other people sharing her sentiments. So I just wanted to clarify.
In the post about Sophia's head lice... yes I did want to (partially for comic relief) try and assure myself and everyone else that we are not dirty people. That doesn't mean that I think others who have gotten lice are dirty people. I guess I hoped that was obvious since I'd just been through it. I know from the things I read that that is, however, an old-school sentiment... and wanted to help set the record straight. For selfish reasons of course. But I'm not sure that makes me shallow. Maybe it does?
Also, I said "In the future, if I ever get one of those notes home from school or think my kids were around some poor kid who got lice..."
And for heaven's SAKE, I didn't mean POOR... like a kid without money! Really??? It seems insane to me that it would be read that way. But maybe that's only because I'm the one who wrote it? Just please know, (in case my unfriendly commenter wasn't alone in her concerns over my humanity) I mean "some poor kid" like "poor baby". Like some poor, unfortunate kid (just like Sophia) who was unlucky enough to catch it from some other poor, unfortunate kid. And by unfortunate, I don't mean like "without fortune" as in without money. Oh boy.... this could go on and on...
So Rochelle, clearly you've made your mind up about me. Please feel free to move on. There's a wide world of people to criticize online, if you're into that sort of thing.
