We at the GayWay (and that is the preferred shorthand) love Liberty Frozen Custard (but I'm not including a link until they get their website under control; it's a mess) just as much as we did when we were young and dumb and Going40. However.
We do not love it on a Friday night as a toddler birthday party is coming to an overstimulated, tantrum-inducing end. I'm afraid this brings us to GayWay Gentle Admonition Eins. To all Permissive Mothers of the Modern Era (this excludes all mothers I know personally, as they are perfect in every way): Use some common sense. What did you expect to have happen at 8:00pm as you handed yet more candy to three-year-olds? Your children are not the only ones in the restaurant/theater/park/public place. And no, you don't get a free pass for bad behavior just because you chose to procreate. And as long as we're on the subject, you know that haircut that 93 percent of you have? The one that's kind of short, kind of flippy, kind of shaggy, kind of asymmetrical, and was cute for about ten minutes in 2005? We're done with that now, and can move on. If you need a new idea, I will find out who cuts the hair of MK and SM of Longfellow 'hood, because they are currently the two most stylish mothers I know.
Huh. And here I was worried that if I started a new blog I wouldn't have anything to say.
