A mom was shocked recently when she discovered a nasty anonymous note in her mailbox bashing her child for “crying all day.”
Reports say that 26-year-old Trish LaForty went for a family day at the beach, and upon returning home, she found a note in her mailbox that read, “You may be able to ignore your baby crying but we are tired of listening to him crying non-stop all day.”
LaForty says that the note left her “shocked and emotional” and that acknowledged that she has no idea who may have written it, but she decided to take to Facebook to vent about it.
“To whoever wrote this note: thanks. Like being a parent isn’t tough enough… You didn’t even have the guts to come knock on our door,” LaForty wrote. “FYI Our baby doesn’t cry ‘all day' ..he cries when he doesn’t want to go to sleep, when he’s getting his nappy changed and when I say ‘no’ because I refuse to let him be spoiled and run around like he owns the joint. If you’d like to chat more, feel free to pop in. You obviously know where we live.”
LaForty also decided to go to some of her neighbors and ask them personally if they wrote the note, but all of them said they were just as shocked as she was and even claimed that they’ve never even heard little baby Will cry.
“I wanted to clear the air, but also to find out if anyone had experienced any similar notes,” LaForty said to 9 News Australia. “Every baby has good days and bad days. Parents should be able to have the support from their community. I think it’s sad that there are still people out there who lack the true feel of what a community should be.”
So far, the person behind the note has not come forward.
