    I tend to agree with this. There are so many articles and blog posts etc floating around saying how bad parents are if they don't react to their toddler screaming and how if they "tune it out" they must just be ignorant and neglectful parents, that I think some mums get paranoid of what people must be thinking and when they are commentating on the kid, what they are really saying is "I am fully aware of this screaming toddler, I am going to very obviously do something about it so that you don't think I'm just some parent who doesn't give a toss".

    It's one of the things in a long line of stuff that mothers do wrong that these "helpful parenting sites" and pages on Facebook shove guilt in their face for.

    I'm don't give in to tantrums and often refuse to fuel them, this includes my 4yo autistic sons meltdowns and I have had more nasty comments (both directly to me and under their breath) about how I should be paying attention to my children and some have called me outright neglectful. So I assume the commentating ones are trying to avoid that.

    Dear neighbour, please shove that hammer where the sun does not shine. We never hear a damn peep from you except when DS is having his nap. It's like you time your noisy activities!

    post-ECT pain is the pits. It hurts to move every muscle in my body & with having it every Mon/Wed/Fri there is zero recovery time (added to by it really isn't helping my thoughts & mood as much as I wanted it to )

    I have had the Elmo 'what's the number? Stomp stomp' song in my head for like three days now. Enough already!

    @harvs I don't know that one (good thing too by the sound of it) but my 4yo nephew called me the other night (via mum) as he remembered I'd woken up one morning with the elephant song from (old) play school in my head (grey elephants balancing on a piece of string). He's been singing it for days now apparently and I haven't been able to get the bloody song out of my head since! Luckily he sounds cute when he sings it haha.

    At the hairdresser. Colour just been applied. Now I need to itch my scalp. And the more I try to not think about my need to itch, the more I want to itch!

    Ugh nothing like a cr@p haircut to ruin your day! It's my usual salon but a different hairdresser today. Here's hoping for a good result. It's my SIL's wedding on the weekend. I need nice hair colour for it!
