Playing at McDonalds

So today Sean is off of school and he wanted to go to play at McDonald's we went and of course it was crazy because every child is off of school today and wanted to go play at McDonald's.

We were playing just fine until some older kids came and were running all over the place not caring if they ran into the little ones they just pushed them out of the way.

Sean got pushed and pushed hard he fell down and then one of them put his foot on Sean to move up to the next level. Sean was screaming and crying for help. I went and helped him, sure I looked like an overprotective mom for going up the tree house to the next landing to get my child to make sure he was okay.

He is fine more scared then anything. The worse part is the older kids did not say sorry or ask if he was okay but were laughing at him for crying and that his mommy needed to save him. At that point we decided to leave because it was not worth risking them to push him again. BUT the absolute worse part is there MOTHER was there and witnessed the entire thing she was right next to me and she did not ask if he is okay or say sorry for the way my boys acted or yell at them that they need to be more careful. I bit my tongue because I wanted to say your boys are to old to play at McDonald's in a little kid tree house. Some people need to teach there children better manners but I guess in this case the apple didn't fall to far from the tree.

Sean was so upset he cried himself to sleep which he normally NEVER takes naps any more. Poor guy!

Oh boy, this post got my blood boiling! I would have gotten the manager to throw the bullies out. Why is it that some people don't teach their children how to behave like humans anymore?
Poor little Sean - it's hard to understand how anyone could hurt such a cutie. Maybe an extra trip back to McDonald's for another Happy Meal is in order. Just make sure he wears his steel - toed boots the next time. =)
