On the radio this morning one of the DJ's shared a real-life scenario that I thought might make an interesting debate topic.

So if she has a child who is also on the spectrum, you'd think she'd be the first one to defend these women, instead of chastising them.


But, even within the autistic community, you will get parents criticising you for your decisions.

For dh and I, and some of our friends...it's a movie. For us, only about once a year.

But it is very nice to cut out at 2 pm and go see a movie...it lets out just in time to go pick up our son.

Some gyms actually do "parent's night out", but I believe most of them have the policy that you have to be on site during normal gym/childcare hours. Which is a bummer if you want to go out for a run.

another example is a wedding we have to go to in a month that's at 3 pm. DS not invited. We get out of work early, and we just pick him up at the normal time (leaving the wedding early...we don't have any babysitter for dates).

Sounds to me like Melissa and her DH need a nice big cup of mind your own dam business... Honestly, who cares? The women paid for their club membership, and if they want to spend all that cash to stow their kids in the DC while they relaxed by the pool for an hour, who cares?


Also how do they know it wasn't just the women's day off of high-impact? I work out two days on, one day off, and if I had a membership at a health club (which I don't, FitTV is great for us po' folks) chances are I would be using the DC for my 2 days on, and if they had a pool, keeping in time with my child's daily routine of going to the DC while I used the facilities, while also getting a few minutes to relax on my off days would be probably the best idea I ever heard.

The duties of a Mommy are many; Driver, Personal Chef, Pack Mule, Boo-Boo-Kisser, Assistant, Nurse, Shoe-Finder... and my pesonal favorite, pillow :)
