Daughter's Mouth Dropping Day

Until yesterday, I thought I 'heard it all'. NOPE!!!

Her day started by getting having to get up a 5 a.m. to be at work for 6 a.m. At 11:30 a.m. she went to her son's daycare, which is in a family home and run by the most wonderful couple, Mr. and Mrs. D, in the world. They are probably in their late 50's to early 60's. She has always been a stay-at-home mom and he retired a few years ago. Okay.....When my daughter went in to pick up the 4 year old Little Man, she was told that one of the new kids who is also 4, punched her son in the stomach earlier. Why? Just because he felt like it. Minutes before she got in the house, the same kid punch the Little Man in the nose. Why? Because he wanted the toy the Little Man had in his hand. Lucky for the boy Mr. D was not at home. Mrs. D escorted that kid up to her room, put him on her bed and said "It is nap time for you Mr." It is possible the boy will not be returning. I said to my daughter, "He has a few emotional problems does he?"

At 3:30 p.m. she was having a pedicure, a gift given to her last Christmas, at a place called The Ritz. She walked in the door and the woman said, "I love your hair. You have the most beautiful hair I have ever seen since I have worked here. I would die for hair like yours." Then she took my daughter to the pedicure room. No massage chair. Just a black leatherette chair in a room in the back of the salon. My eyes squinched a little. The woman said she would be right back. Seconds later she arrived with a Conair foot bath! The same one we have had at home for years. Now my mouth dropped open. I know everyone wants to know where this woman did the pedicure. ON THE FLOOR! SITTING ON THE FLOOR WITH HER LEGS CROSSED!
She accidentally nicked the polish and BLEW ON MY DAUGHTER'S FOOT and said "I don't just blow on anybody's foot." There was no luxury of a heating lamp. She sprayed my daughter's feet with a freeze spray. It is 10 above zero where we live. Now I covered my mouth.

During the pedicure process, the woman said to my daughter, "Let me ask you some questions." Apparently that went okay. Then she said, "Now you ask me questions." OMG!!! The woman told my daughter that she has 10 year old twins, a boy and a girl. She said, "I thought that when I had the twins I would have wonderful children, beautiful daughter. No! My daughter has serious disorders and is chubby. My son is high energy ADHD. I love my kids, but they are not the children I thought I was going to have." There was a lot more information volunteered about her daughter's puberty, but I am not getting into that.

As much as I wanted to ask about more of this woman's personal details, I bit my tongue and only asked what her name was.

So much for THE RITZ!

I really should write a book.
