This weekend we took our girls to see Disney Princesses on Ice. They had such a blast as they love anything that has to do Disney Princesses. I love taking my girls to Ice shows as it reminds me of some of my best childhood memories. When we go to the ice shows, as we do every year I have to splurge on everything. We eat a lot of yummy junk food as it would just not be the same without cotton candy, snow cones and my favorite soft pretzels and cheese sauce…Yum! It is also an absolute must that we get some kind of light up today every year, this has become a tradition and we have to spin around the lasted and greatest light up toy. This year I was surprised when my girls passed on the adorable light up princess crowns and choose the spinning tinker bell light up toy.
Events like this also remind me of just how rude some people are. We were lucky enough to be sitting in front of a little girl who was kicking the crap out of the backs of our seats. Since I really like to avoid confrimation I thought that by turning my head and giving a few looks would let the mom know that the constant kicking was not appreciated. However, this mom thought that her child was darling and was not going to spoil her time by teaching her any manners. Finally after the second half of the show I had reached the point where enough was enough. I no longer cared about confronting this very rude mom who refused to parent her child. I finally asked her very politely to have her child stop kicking the seat, she gave a very sweet smile and nodded her head. This mother then continued to allow her daughter to kick the seat, and let me also say that this was very constant and hard kicking, not just a few little kicks here and there. I finally snapped and just told her that enough was enogh and that it needed to stop. I am always amazed at the lack of parenting that some people display. I love that I married someone from Texas who is all about southern manners and having our children say, Please, thank you, Yes Ma’am, No Sir, etc…. I wish that I was from Texas!
