Dear child haters of the Westside,

30 Apr

If you hate children, stay indoors. Kids are everywhere: the mall, the market, and even (gasp) restaurants. If you find the high pitch scream of a 2 year old too painful to bear then don’t go to the mall. More specifically, do not go to the Westfield Century City shopping mall. I spend a lot of time there with my kids and you will definitely hear them before you see them. I’m not saying that my kids and I rule the world and everyone else has to deal with it. I’m just saying that if you are particularly offended by anyone under the age of 12 then maybe you should rethink your daily outings. You won’t find me lining up the high chairs at a fancy shmancy restaurant. You won’t see my little ones in a movie theater until they are old enough to sit still for 90+ minutes. You won’t find us at a college library, singles bar, adults only resort, trendy club, cooking seminar, yoga class, or pretty much anywhere in public past 6pm. However, Coffee Bean, the park, the supermarket, and the mall are fair game. If you have a problem with me or my children, then start shopping on Amazon and brew your own coffee at home.

Remember, you too were a child once and no matter what your mother says I promise you weren’t always well behaved.


What do you think?

    I agree! My daughter when she gets really excited or happy to see a friend or family member makes a high pitched Shrek. I love it but you should see the looks we get sometimes.
