Woke to day to gloomy weather. It was still warm enough to crack the windows and let the fresh air in. About a week ago I started an exercise program to try and lose some weight. I didn't get my exercise in yesterday so I guess i will have to make it up this week but going 40 min instead of 30 min. I am tired of being overweight but am frustrated that this is going to take a while to take off. Anyway had to grocery shopping not my favorite thing to do.While there I watched a mom struggle with a screaming child. I could see the frustration on her face. She commented that she didn't understand why the child was acting like a brat to her husband. I could tell the child was tired but on top of that later I seen her buying a candy for the child to shut her up. It worked. The child has learned to act up so she gets candy from what I observed. The mother wasn't happy with me when I suggested she not reward her bad behavior and see if she stops acting up in the store. I know I should have kept my thoughts too myself but I couldn't help it. I have seen so many parents now a days wondering why the child doesn't behave when simple observations would soon show you why they act like little monsters. Okay off the soap box for now. I came home and watched old episodes of Bones. I love the forensics of this show. I like the how and why of the show. And now I need to get my kids to go to sleep because they have school in the morning. Thanks for listening to my vent for today.

  1. Don't you hate it when you see kids acting out and the parents are clueless.

    There should be a permit to become a parent.
