I'm sorry you had such a bad time. I would have been ticked off if my dh told me that he got flashed while your day pretty much sucked.

 

Monica_WeinerBaby#1 - February 11

oh, (another comma) not to be rude!

 

aurorabunny - February 11

Yeah I'm also not trying to be rude and I know you wanted to go see your husband march, but why on earth would you take a 3 month old to a mardi gras parade?? What did you expect? I mean I think everyone pretty much knows what goes on at Mardi Gras. Just my 2 cents. Sorry you had such a c___ppy night though.

 

Monica_WeinerBaby#1 - February 11

oh my gosh this is not new orleans ok u guys are missing the point im was not the only parent there its been on the news radio and everywhere else saying bring your families but believe me my son and i will never go agian

Actaully, monica......what you said was very rude. Besides, mine are too saggy to flash : 0

Hey you asked for other mom's opinions---you're getting 'em. Sorry they're not the ones you wanted to hear. Even if it wasn't full on Mardi Gras, all I'm saying it it would seem obvious to me that it was the type of even where people were gonna be boozing it up and acting looney. Just not something I would take my baby too....I guess at least you'll know for next time what they are like now.

 

Monica_WeinerBaby#1 - February 11

thank u not everyone nos about mardi gras as i didnt its a family event supposly im sorry for being rude but im just upset im in la by myself and am asking for a women to talk to and im getting the responses im getting im a stay at home mother with a husband in the army eho is gone alot and im just looking 4 conversation

 

Monica_WeinerBaby#1 - February 11

my husband wanted his son to be there to show him off he hasnt had much support with the army from his family so i promised him i would be there 4 him in everything he does

mardi gras is a yearly party/parade thrown yearly in Louisiana. it is notorious for drunkeness and girls showing off their b___bies for plastic beads. it's not a place for babies, but if Monica didn't know that then she'll know better next time. as for the naked girls. i'm sure it p__sed you off, but like i said mardi gras is known for that and if he marches again next year it's bound to happen then too. i hope you get used to it. i agree that the women doing the flashing could probably find something better to do w/ their time than running around a parade drunk and naked, but the fact is that it happens yearly. oh btw... i'm not one of the naked girls myself. hope your day gets better.

 

jillianT - February 11

wow. i said "yearly" 3 times in that post. i think i need a nap.

 

Monica_WeinerBaby#1 - February 11

thank you jillian i didnt no and i do now no and i promise you it wont happen again my son is the most important thing in my life and i didnt bring him there knowing naked women and drunk people would fill the crowds if i did i wouldnt have NEVER EVER brought him and i never will again but for the people advertising the parade i ask of them to please inform parents of the things that go along with the parade because as i said earlier once you get in you cant get out

The reason vonzo didn't know what Mardi Gras was, Monica, is because she's from the UK. I thought everyone from the US, regardless of where you are from knew what Mardi Gras was....they even have an entire show of Cops dedicated to it, Partylite has an entire line of stuff called Mardi Gras.....just my observations. But like you said, now you know. As far as your husband telling you he saw a naked woman, be happy he feels comfortable enough to share that with you. You also should be comfortable in your relationship so that it doesn't bother you. He didn't do anything with her. I agree with Ash on that point. He's a man in uniform, you guys are at a Mardi Gras parade, and that's what women do. Show their ta-ta's to get beads. I understand you wanted to be there for your husband, but taking the baby wasn't a good idea. Besides, you said yourself it was cold.....And before you attack me, you asked for another mother's opinion, it's just my opinion.

Monica remember when you were a teenager/early 20's, didn't you act a little stupid too? Ok I don't know how old you are and i hate to say this, but the other moms are right on this one! Sorry but Mardi Gras is crazy and at least you know that now! LOL Ash2 your comment about punctuation was a little blunt...but jeez I had a hard time reading that too haha. Anyway Monica sorry you had a bad time. I hope it gets better, I'm truly sorry about your baby.

 

Monica_WeinerBaby#1 - February 11

well i know about mardi gras but that is in new orleans everything you hear is from there and it all starts at night and you have to be 21 to go there ok i understand what you guys are saying but i dont need anyone questioning my parenting im 20 yrs old and i guess when you have children you just look at the world a whole different way and when i see men in uniform i think about 9/11 not how s_xy they are and when i did do my partying i never didnt it in the presents of children thats what im so upset about i said i woulndt mind it if it was a adult function but there advertising it for children they had cartoon characters there for children but whatever i did it and it wont happen again and about my husbands and my relationship im a jealous person and im working on that

 

aurorabunny - February 11

Monica sorry I think I kinda jumped on you....my dad just used to work into a hospital and he would tell me stories about babies and toddler coming in with all these different injuries just because their parents were doing something stupid and had them in some appropriate situation and things got outta hand. I realize that you really didn't see what you were getting yourself into, so sorry that I jumped on you. I try to keep myself out of arguments on here that just touched a nerve at first.
