Another Mother of the Year
I bring you not one, not two, but five fails from one of the school mums.
One: Allowing a kid that looks to be 1.5-2 years old run around crazily near a busy road where idiots randomly speed despite it being a school zone.
Two: Ignoring him in favour of unlocking your minivan and then fixing your hair in the side mirror. Bonus points for the kissy face at your reflection.
Three: Standing next to your car and watching him execute a near flawless dive-roll over a short lavender bush covered in bees into someone elses's front yard.
Four: Remain next to the minivan while about 4 metres away, your kid is charging around a stranger's front yard, waving a stout stick and running in loops close to both the windows and the aforementioned bee-covered plants.
Five: Finally realising that hey, this might be a bad idea, and so start to ask your child in a wheedling tone to please come and get into the 'van. Huh, that's not working. Change tactics to "Sweetheart, they might have a big dog in their backyard. It might come out and eat you! You better get in the 'van quickly before the big, mean doggy gets you! Quickly! Ohhh that's a stranger's yard and they probably have a big mean dog waiting to get you!"
Nice lady, real nice. I've heard people say that parenting has gone to the dogs, but this most certainly takes the cake.
Don't tempt pixies, it never ends well.
