To want to punch this school mum in the face?!

So.. background dd had a speech problem diagnosed at 2. She's now six and you pretty much wouldn't know she had a problem. Almost there, but it was a long slog she went to a specialist school for a while etc.
Ds also now unfortunately has been put forward for speech therapy. He's 2, 3 in august. A mum at dd school today day asked when ds would be going to school. I answered next year all being well.
She asked what I mean I said 'well depending on how his speech comes on as technically we could delay to the following year until he is CSA. She then laughed (a full belly laugh) and said 'well clearly it's not coming well at the moment'
I was just like 😳 just because it's not a physically disability why would someone think I would just laugh along it's bloody awful seeing your children not being able to express themselves, get frustrated etc.
What a twat.... I'm cross I didn't tell her off I just didn't really say anything!!

Thanks handsoff. Just needed to vent as I'm usually such a confident loud person etc. And would just speak my mind but I was so shocked I just kind of welled up and felt like a dick when I was walking back to the car!! I think as it's a second child in a similar situation you already feel awful without people making jokes!

Iwant to punch her fucking face in to OP.
I had a similar situation. My dd was non verbal as a three year old and a mother at M&T told her dd off for not enunciating something properly and she said "Speak properly, you're not Lucy" It is genuinely one of my biggest regrets that i didn't call her out on it. It was ina church hall and the images in my head were nit pretty. I never spoke to that woman again.
Dd had speach therapy and pardon the cliche but by yr 6 she never shuts up

Sorry- I know I sound about 5, but that kind of smuggery-buggery just wants me to poke her in the side and stick out my tongue!
OP, while your child is coming on in leaps and bounds over the next few months, SHE will always speak like a cunt.
Ps, I had a lisp until I was 14, wnd went through SP myself, so I sort of get it.

Theorginallem that is absolutely awful! What a absolute bastard! I can't believe someone said that! Thankfully as dd had a similar problem and like you say with speech therapy is now 'normal' (sorry) with speech I am more laid back about ds. But not so laid back I like people laughing about it!!

All rounds you sound more mature that her!!! And I think that's what's made it worse ds has been coming on so much so I was feeling very positive until her twatty comment! My mum answered similar to you 'god job she's so bloody perfect then isn't it'

Mummyoflittledragon i can't believe someone Actually said that to... I don't know. Maybe you're right about this school mum as her dd (who is in my dd class) is much much smaller than the rest of the class .. and does seem to have a growth problem. However I wouldn't actually know as unlike her I've realised it's none of my business and never bloody asked and just spoke about her dd as the lovely little girl she is. I've never mentioned her size why would I?!!!
