Think before you speak

I haven't been watchin' the news. Well, to be honest, I haven't watched much since I moved up here, but lately - it's been even less.

So I didn't know about that whole Alec Bladwin voicemail til I saw AW post on it the other night.

Three words came to mind right away. F*ck You Baldwin!

Seriously, you leave that on a voicemail? To a child? YOUR child???

Then I see in the articles I'm reading he's issued an apology. Says it's not his fault. It shouldn't have been leaked.

Ok - I agree. Voicemails are private. BUT....when you put yourself out there as a "Celebraty" AND you engage in a really bitter custody battle? Yeah, shit's gonna happen.

Now, I've raised kids. I KNOW it's hard work, it's frustrating - they can and will push your buttons. BUT.....and here's the key........they are KIDS. You are the adult in the situation. Some self control is called for. Even *I* know that.

Those kids I raised? Yeah, they weren't mine. But I treated them with respect. My nieces and nephew? They are enough like my sister that they can put me over the edge in a nanosecond - but you don't talk to them that way. Period.

Not in my book anyway. You want respect? Earn it. Share it. Deserve it.

I've got more to say on this....but I'm waiting on an email from my niece. Than I'll give you a glimpse inside the mind of a child and show you exactly how voicemails and temper tantrums can effect a young one.

Bastard. I didn't talk to my dog like that. Can't imagine doin' that to a child.....

i never liked alec, so big suprise? he dissappointed me, big deal, he never impressed me. except his voice overs on the thomas the train series, that was his best work

anyway, before they ran the translations, i thought he had called her a "rogue little pig" and i rather liked the worldly sound of that insult.

anyway, if there is any good that can come of child abuse, it's this: i have a great new catch phrase, you rogue little pig!

Phhhft, his daughter is more mature than he is. That guy is a complete asshole.

Rent "The Departed". He dies in that movie in a really satisfying way.
