Recently, I received a Colgate kit with toothpaste and toothbrushes for the kids. Today, I took a pic of 4 of the kids brushing at the sink, two on step stools and the other two on the counter. I group texted the pics to the mothers. All of the mothers said a nice compliment...except for one. A mother who is condescending to me frequently. This was her group response. “I hate to be “that mom”, but all of their names “All of their names are on their toothbrushes, right?”
I didn’t respond. I did have their names on the toothbrushes but you cannot see them from the pic. But, that isn’t the issue. 1). This mother never responds to my group texts. She is too cool to give a compliment. 2). Why wouldn’t you Send me a pm instead of a group text if you have that concern? 3). This mothers child is 2 yrs old and brings his nasty blanket and pacifier everyday. When it falls on the floor, she just pops it back in his mouth.

Ugh! I would respond back with a simple yup! But I’m petty. I can’t think of a sarcastic comment at the moment.

Maybe stop including her on the text messages. Doesn't seem like she enjoys receiving them. Frustrating having parents like that.

Ignore completely! She is having a tantrum.

I'd respond " There's always one. The toothbrushes come individually wrapped. Deep breaths, Mom. I got this. "

I would ask her why would you put their names on them or I was wondering why all the kids were saying I gave them the wrong ones-thanks for the tip of putting names on them.

How frustrating.


"I am concerned with germs. ANYTHING that goes near a child's mouth is cleaned. I even wash his pacifier multiple times a day!"

jerkwad.

Say nope I'm just going to let the kids grab whichever one they want to use.

Lol, this is totally how my mind works too. I hate when parents think we are stupid.

I'd term her. Nasty behaviors and attitude. I would say "Your text got me thinking of all the germs you bring in and the unhygienic behavior you model."
