WHY do some women get themselves dressed, take the time to put their shoes on, possibly even a bra, but they cannot find the energy or time to dress their child?
Yesterday a perfectly decent dressed woman was shopping in a clothing store with a nearly naked 2 yr old. I say nearly naked because the child was wearing an obviously recently used diaper and socks. Oh, and her hair was in pigtails.
First of all, it is no longer 110 degrees outside. Secondly, if the child threw up, went to the bathroom on or simply removed her own clothes, how about calling off the shopping trip and going back home to regroup?
If the child needs new clothes and only owns a pair of socks, at least be kind enough to provide her with a blanket so she doesn't turn purple in the store. Or, if no blanket is available, try putting YOUR shirt on her. I would rather see a mother nearly naked than her baby, who has no control over his/her wardrobe, or lack of, at diaper age.
I glared, but it appeared to have no effect. The mother was too busy cooing over an adult coat on sale for what she could've bought three outfits for her daughter.
