Moms of Mill Valley, California

Listen here, Moms. I don't care how cute your kid is. The existence of your little Madison/Griffin/Chelsea does not exempt you from basic social etiquette. What I mean: Don't sit your kid on the store counter and let him bang his heels against the wall while you blather on to your friend about choosing the right kind of organic juicebox. Don't block the bike lane with your not-so-mini minivan while you pick the kid up from Waldorf pre-school. Don't yammer away on your cell phone, oblivious to the rest of the world, while blocking the entire aisle of the farmers market with your double-wide stroller. And please, don't be so goddamn afraid of every stranger you DO manage to notice. We are not a threat to your family. In fact, we don't care one way or another about you or your children, we just want you to be quiet, polite, and get out of the way. Thanks.
