h__lo ladies ! i just wanted to share some expirences on some things that i have found it to be WONDERFUL to be a mom of young kids ! everone opens the door for you, you always have an excuse to use a restroom instead of a porta-potty wen you have little ones, you have an exuse to go on kiddie rides with them ( well you know, there to small to go by theirselves :) ), you also get to eat their leftovers if you are still hungry, they get to eat free or at a discounted price if under 12 years of age ! oh, and if you have a newborn, you ALWAYS get the door opened for you. you also get privledges like strangers giving them a dollar or a toy ( ecspecially the elderly)! anyone else have any stories or special privleges they have from having little ones?

Hi i do, When you to to a car park and its all full you get to the one for parents with prams and its basically right next to the shopping center door, you get free balloons when you go past a shop that are handing them out, when you go into a lift people let you in 1st, when you go out you tend to meet more people as they have kids too, when you are so streesed out you have a great excuse and most of all when you get your kids minded you feel like you realy deserve it and even if it is just a night in with you and hubby that just feels like being pamperd alone lol. This is a great thread.

Oh yeah, we flew to Colorado when we only had one kid and it was right after 9/11 and security lines were soo long we were going to miss our flight. But, we had our umbrella stroller with us and were told that if we unfolded it and strapped ds in we could go to the front of the "special needs" line. We made our flight with time to grab breakfast!!

Oh and few more things, when you go on a plane you get on 1st (with the young ones that is) and the best one out of the lot is that alot of nice young lads help you take the pram up and down stairs lmao.

ahs2 -- since you mention it -- what's with elderly people handing out dollars? I live in a run down old factory town and go on lots of walks. I have old men who appear homeless handing me dollars for my baby all the time. I just thought everyone in my city was crazy, is there something to it I don't know about? I find it very odd. If I try to refuse it they tell me I have to take it because it will bring them luck. Does anyone find this odd behavior? I don't think I look particularly like I am in dire need of a dollar or anything. What do I do with them? I feel too guilty to spend them so I keep them to give to the church but I so rarely get to church anymore that the dollars actually make me feel guilty...

People give my girls money and toys all the time. The money I put in a piggy bank for them. My oldest and I were at McDonalds when she was 3. She wanted this barbie toy with a heart n the chest. I got her, her meal and they said they were out. When we sat down she started talking to this elderly man. She told him how upset she was that they don't keep enough barbies for everyone. He got up and throw his food away and left. 5 mins later he came back with a new Barbie for her. It had a heart on the chest. He told her that a beautiful girl like her should never be upset. She is almost 8 now and still has things handed to her. Another moment I remember is when I was working at a gas stationa nd my oldest dd was about 7 months old. I had a customer ask about her everytime he came in. After about 3 weeks of him talking to me, he came by and handed me some money. I tryed over and over to give it back. He said no, get things for your daughter that you need. Then maybe you wont have to work so hard this week. I thought it was a five. But when I opened it, it was a fifty. So I bought her some diapers and a couple outfits. Before my kids peolpe hardly said hi. Now they never stop asking question and cooing over my lo's. I agree this is a great thread.

i agree with you mama3 on everyone being more nce to you. i cant go into a grocery store without someone striking up a conversation with me and my 3 year old or newborn. it makes you feel like a better person and makes you want to be a better person. i once was in a gas station getting gas and a guy in front of me in line was kind of " homely " looking with messed up clothes and smelled really bad. he really scared me and so i went to pull back myson from being so close . at that time the guy turned around and gave my son a dollar and smiled. it was probally the last dollar he had . it really made me think that you cant judge a book by it's cover. i now have an outlook on everyone and not just the "poor ones's" because they end up being the nicest one's. later the clerk said that he is in here all the time just talking to everone and meeting them.
