Mom fail and it wasn't me

There are all kinds of people in this world. I love seeing the differences in people. Let's face it, if we were all the same, it would be boring. But there is one difference I can't stand. That difference is stupidity.

Some people shouldn't have children. Plain and simple.

My midgets' school added a special needs classroom this year. I think that is just fantastic! Honestly, I do! In this classroom there are 4, maybe 5 students. Each of those students are autistic and they all seem to be in different places on the spectrum.

One boy in particular likes to walk around in the grass in front of the school. I can only assume that he has an older sibling that him and his mom have to wait for.

I am not an autism expert, but from the little bit of training and experience I've had, this boy seems to lean towards the more severe end of the spectrum. Correct me if I am wrong please, but people who are autistic are locked in their own world and the depth of that depends on where they fall in the autism spectrum?

Yesterday the mother of this little boy pissed me off like no other. I'm not a violent person but it took everything I had to not beat her ass.

She was busy talking to another parent. While she is doing this her autistic son is roaming in the middle of the street!!! The kindergarten classes and the special needs class are dismissed a few minutes earlier than the other grades. If the parents of those students don't have older kids to wait for, then they get in their cars and drive home. They drive right up the road this boy was walking around on!

No child should walk in the middle of the road, but especially not this child.

This little boy was enjoying being outside and walking around. He could have cared less about the SUV that was coming towards him. Yes, I said SUV! Had his mother not pulled him back, it could have been an ugly situation. Thank god she came to her sense and remembered she had a child because I was about to knock some sense in to her.

I try to remind myself, we all have our "stupid" moments.

How scary! I once saw a little girl push her baby brother in a stroller down a big hill towards a creek. Her mother was talking to someone else. I was sitting in my car, at a light, and all I could do was honk my horn repeatedly.

My sisters son has autism and having seen all she goes through I know how easy it is for that child to escape unnoticed. I see where you are coming from, but I also know the other side.

I definitely think that it is important with a special needs child to pay closer attention to them, especially near a busy street. I have a son that is not technically special needs but he has attention issues and I have to pay close attention to him because he never seems to be aware of his surroundings. It is difficult but it is part of being a parent too.

Every mom has a moment (or a few) where we take our eyes of the kids for a second. Thankfully this time nothing happened.

Babe gets away from me for a second sometimes but he can only get a few feet from me before I snag him!

When we are near streets he has to be carried or hold my hand.
