Flying home from holiday today, yummy mummy of OUTRAGEOUSLY named children spent the whole flight getting them to do maths (or actually she did the whole lot and they looked longingly at my game of bejewelled) then read Harry Potter to them (loudly) then got them to write up their holiday diaries (yes dear, other people had villas with pools too) then nagged her husband to read to them (he didn't) and basically stopped anybody near her from enjoying their reading material and all of us wondered if she really knew what her child's name said about her (read your history BEFORE naming the child, not after)
PS economy airline - so she was cheap as well as loud.
I remember the day my Dh made me soooo proud of him, we where at a friends and another couple and their children where there, the whole day the mother spoke french when she was telling the children off, and they replied the same, I don't speak French so unaware of this, she spoke in a normal voice, so we didn't know what she was saying, DH does, eventually he congrats mother on her spoken French and asks why she only tells her children off in it? Red faced mother states that she is only trying to improve her children's french, my blunt Dh says.."oh i like it, not only are you teaching them French but you are making the French look like BASTARDS!" Brilliant! apparently she was swearing and threatening them at them and they at 4 and 5 back to her, our friends said they had never been so grateful as this mum had made there lives hell about her prefect parenting for years... And I would lay money the parent on the flight was her
