So. I was watching MAD MEN tonight. What an awesome episode.
But it got me thinking. Betty Draper has three children in fake tv land, right? Lucky her. She’s such a nasty piece of work and is a terrible mother to her children (great to her baby but probably until he is able to be his own person by speaking and walking.) How come such a mean lady gets to have three children and someone like me, had such a rough time having one made?
I’m not bitter but I grow SO pensive about this sort of stuff. I’d be proud to have Sally Draper as my daughter. She’s so cool…
Last week, I was in Macy’s and there was SUCH a line of us (those with strollers) waiting for the elevator. I never noticed strollers before my daughter was born! Anyway, I counted fourteen of us and there were three who were so cruel to their young children. I don’t want to recap it all but it hurts me to see children being so emotionally hurt by those who are their caretakers. I count my blessings I have my beautiful girl but I count her blessings that she has parents who love her SO much in return. She has every right to a wonderful life as every other person in this world.
So I grow pensive when I see other caretakers not handling their cargo with such care – in public (who knows? They might be lovely behind closed doors.)
Anyway. Was wondering if any of you caught tonight’s MAD MEN and what your thoughts are on Betty Draper as a mom.
Or how you feel when you see shitty caretakers in public?
