When babies attack: Labor pain is just the start
Parents, beware of poked eyes, broken noses, blows to the groin and more

While other moms were enjoying being pampered on Mother’s Day, Hilary Wheeler Miller was nursing a broken nose that she suffered after being
headbutted by her 3-year-old son.

“He stood up really fast and just plowed into my nose,” says the
40-year-old mom from Littleton, Colo.

You can read the whole article at MSNBC.

I thought it was a sort of tongue-in-cheek look at some all-too-common accidents that can happen when you spend several hours a day with a small person near you, who has no idea about personal space or his impact on the world around him.

But the comments. Oy.

The ranting, the raving, the "This is why the world is going to hell. People are letting their children run out of control! They should be teaching those babies not to . . . ." -ness of it all.

What. The. Fuck?


  1. In a sense the Internet is causing the destruction of civilization. Because these bozos can comment without leaving their names, they say anything. And no, your blog has some very civilized readers. But for the most part when people do not have to identify themselves they say mean and hateful things they ordinarily would not because people who say those things are yellow-bellied cowards and basically use up space and air that should be going to something a little more human. They are a waste of our natural resources. Perhaps we can outsource them to other planets.

  2. I can't argue with that.

    Also, I'm having to remind myself that I really DON'T want more posts to put under my new "When Babies Attack" category, do I?

  3. Unless...perhaps we could train her to attack only certain people.

    Would that be wrong?

  4. I tend to agree with Shrike, but now how do I sign as "anonymous"?


What say you?
