Don't Touch ME

I got a phone call from my friend today. Seems her childcare provider felt it necessary to hit her four year old son in the face with a paddle because he did not close his eyes during nap time. I hope Jessica of Yokota Air Force Base, Japan, gets her license yanked faster than she can say "Domo Arigato." Pending investigation, my ass. There was a welt on his happy little face. The police took pictures of it. Not your child, not your right.

The bizarre thing about this whole event is that one of our other friends saw her hit him in the face in the community center. The kid? He denied it, but he never wanted to go there. Jessica was upset that someone would tell lies about her. They were speaking the truth. What's wrong with you lady? You DO NOT hit other people's kids.

Jessica hits children in the face with paddles.
Do not let her watch your children.

That poor baby! She'll get her license yanked and most likely her husband (if they're military) will get a stern talking to by his shirt.
Post her picture! =D

That's terrible. On a semi-related note, the 3-year-old I watch screamed his little friggin' head off today when I tried to take him home. Screaming at the top of his lungs, and I'm sure everyone in the whole Barnes & NOble heard. I was sure someone was either going to think I was abusing or kidnapping him.

He was not only screaming, but kicking me, pulling my hair, and hitting me.

His five-year-old brother stayed terribly calm, eating his biscotti and holding my coffee. I was so proud of him I wanted to cry.

'Course, wanted to cry for other reasons, as well....

I've put a paddle in my purse. Maybe she thinks she belongs to a fraternity. Speaking of which, reminds me of the time I found my boyfriend naked, drunk, and tied to a pole. They paddled his butt, though. Not his face. You don't hit kids in the face with objects period. I'd say not at all, but Momma slapped me for disrespecting her, and let me tell you. I never did it again.

You have got to love it when kids act like this! I start to ovulate right then and there! ERGH. At least you didn't get hit in the face with a golf club. That actually happened to me. NICE! Best experience of my life *twinkle* EVER!

You know, I think it did actually bring on my period early.....

I think she should get slapped in the face with a paddle...

Oh, and just so you know, Rachel actually didn't make me post this. =D
