Child Services please...


I need to vent so here...

To the woman at the Selmer Moose Lodge Saturday night you are the epitome of an unfit mother!

My brothers band had a gig at the Moose Lodge, hey you have to start somewhere, Saturday night. I arrived around 7:30PM to a group of several already very drunk rednecks. The band hadn't started playing yet so the lights were up and if was pretty quite in little room where they we going to play. I noticed a beautiful baby girl about 6 months old all dressed up, a headband with a big bow on her little bald head, her chubby cheeks were bright red and she was being passed from one drunk to another. I thought okay she's just showing off her baby and she will leave once the band starts playing...not. She was still there wide eyed still being passed around to anyone that would take her when I left at 11:30pm!

Dear Unfit Mother at the Selmer Moose Lodge,

You have a beautiful baby girl. I'd bet that if that baby could talk she would have told you,"Take me home, read me a story and put me in my nice warm bed. Really, Mommy it's 12 degrees outside and I don't want to be here."

You are a child abuser and you have no idea. You obviously didn't want to be bothered with motherhood. That little baby spent hours in a tiny smoked filled room with a band blaring very loud music in her tiny ears. I never heard her fuss or cry, someone was holding her all night, usually someone with a drink and a cigarette in their hand.

Believe me I will never be named mother of the year but this so infuriated me that I needed to put it in words. I never put my daughter in this situation and I managed to raise her to adulthood without too much damage. I only wish one of the adults there would have told you to take your little darling home or get a babysitter when you want to go out and party. Just think the next time, "Does my baby really need to be exposed to smoke, loud music and drunks tonight?" If she could talk, she would have said NO!

You're lucky that I have no idea who you are or I would be on the phone with child services telling them this story instead of venting on my blog. Please start acting like a real mother and take care of this baby.

Sincerely,
Visitor at the Selmer Moose Lodge

next time, call child services and have them come get the child right then and there.

Please don't take this as an attack - it is not meant to be. Why didn't you do something then & there?

I am kicking myself for not doing anything, but quite frankly I was afraid I would get my ass kicked!

Witnessed the same thing recently at the Moose Lodge here. I was appalled. I did call but was told it is not child abuse.

u know what else that pisses me off...while we are talking...
is there are people like her that don't try and get pregnant and don't deserve a baby that can have one by blinking and eye and then there are people that want a baby so bad and will be GOOD moms who cannot have children...that will send me over the edge
