To tell this woman to fuck off next time?

So, background - ds2 has severe developmental delays, gets middle rate DLA, likely genetic condition, currently in a clinical study to work out what is causing his issues. Had regular physio, SALT, brain MRIs etc etc.

He's been at nursery in a funded 2 year old place since January.

He's very recently started to begin walking. Holding on until last week, now can walk short distances unaided.

Now to the bitch.

A month ago at picking up time he walked towards me holding a staff members hand. They said very excitedly that he'd been walking a lot. Another mother butted in saying "oh! He just needed some time away from mum!"

I was more than a bit hmm but thought maybe it was one of those things where you say something without thinking.

Today, two members of staff were telling me he'd walked between rooms on his own and been really proud of himself. He saw me, crawled towards me. Again she popped up and said "But he starts crawling when he sees mum! Haha"

Wtf? Is she unhinged?

Ooops that's a bit long

She sounds like a twatfuck. angry Next time say "who asked you!? with a broad grin...then smack her on the arm (hard) and say "Only joking!" with another grin.

Silly cow she sounds. Well done to DS!

She does seem a bit unhinged! Sorry to laugh but the idea of her suddenly popping up like a spitting image puppet whenever your ds achieves something was very funny.

Glad to hear ds is doing well and well done for all your hard work.

What a weirdo. Do you know her at all?

And well done your ds!!

Dublinlass Thu 04-Jun-15 21:56:19

Maybe trying to be funny but failing miserably. Great news that he's walking though. Great achievement x

CrapBag Thu 04-Jun-15 21:59:07

What the actual fuck has it got to do with her! I'd be fuming. In fact I am on your behalf.

To answer your OP, nope you would be well within your rights to tell her something I read on here "off you fuck cuntychops"

Well done to your DS on his walking. smile

She is just bonkers isn't she? Writing it down had made it clear.

No, don't know her really, our boys started at the same time. She wouldn't believe he couldn't walk then either actually.

duckyneedsaclean Thu 04-Jun-15 22:03:12

And thanks for the walking well wishers! He's worked very hard.

We've got an all day trip on Monday. I'm not going to last the day without ripping her a new one am I? confused

YouTheCat Thu 04-Jun-15 22:05:36

How awful! Would the nursery have a word with her?

* I'm not going to last the day without ripping her a new one am I?*

May not be a bad thing...

Just a simple "what do you mean by that" said next time might be enough to 1) not sound too confrontational and 2)make her gently aware that you dont find her remarks funny.

She may genuinely mean nothing at all by it, but doesn't realise how its coming across even if she does sound like an opinionated bitch

Samcro Thu 04-Jun-15 22:09:18

wow mad cow woman needs a thump

well done to your ds. brilliant

BabyMurloc Thu 04-Jun-15 22:09:49

She probably thinks she's being "funny" twats like this usually do. Hopefully the day trip will make her realise how special your little man is and how hard he has worked for this progress! I have a friend with a DS with similar difficulties and if I heard someone say this to her I'd be livid!

BabyMurloc Thu 04-Jun-15 22:11:23

Also that's a great age to walk if he has some issues. I hope you are very proud! My DD didn't walk until she was 3 days from being 2 and there are no issues she's just a lazy so and so

RedDwarfPosse Thu 04-Jun-15 22:11:42

Hmm, I don't think I'd be able to hold myself back if she said it for a third time.

Maybe she's trying to be funny/chatty/make friends but is socially inept so ends up just making an arse of herself... either that or just a fuckwit!

But I'd definitely tell her to keep her ill-informed uneducated opinions to herself if she pipes up with another comment like that again

Is anyone else seeing morelikeguidelines' Spitting Image puppet as KT Hopkins?

duckyneedsaclean Thu 04-Jun-15 22:13:23

That's the thing, I don't know if she thinks she being funny, or actually thinks I have in some way prevented him from walking until now, and so nursery is having to teach him?

And I try to avoid conflict as long as possible. Because when it comes I am apparently a bit scary.

She deserves it though, right? We've got a consensus on that?

duckyneedsaclean Thu 04-Jun-15 22:14:04

minou she does look a bit like Hopkins!

Staywithme Thu 04-Jun-15 22:14:16

It sounds as if she may be jealous that the staff are praising your little one. I can just imagine her bitterly thinking how they don't give her wee one all that attention. Bty I don't agree with her, I'm just thinking that may be what's wrong with her.

Fiddlerontheroof Thu 04-Jun-15 22:15:05

I remember when my daughters awful chorea (involuntary movement disorder) caused her to walk around everywhere with one arm up in the air...and one awful friend commented on it everytime, telling her not to be so ridiculous..and to put it down, even though physically she couldn't....I nearly lumped them too..

Too insensitive and stupid for their own good some people...

I'd def be giving it to her both barrels too!

IBelieveInPink Thu 04-Jun-15 22:15:15

Is this not the perfect opportunity for the mn classic ''did you mean to be so rude?!''

Well done to ds, sounds like he's doing fab! smile

maroonedwithfour Thu 04-Jun-15 22:16:52

I'd very loudly briefly explain ds' issues and say how proud you are of him. Silly moo.

TheCunnyFunt Thu 04-Jun-15 22:16:53

I wasn't minou but now you mention it...

Well done to your DS, he sounds like he's doing very well wrt his walking, it must be very heartwarming to see him being so proud of himself smile

TwinkieTwinkle Thu 04-Jun-15 22:17:14

Playing devil's advocate here, it sounds to me as though she is just trying to be friendly. The usual comments about children just playing up in front of mum so she will do stuff for her etc.
