You are the mother who stole my son's balloon. We were enjoying our carousel ride at South Coast Plaza, and my 11-month-old waved and laughed. I saw you. I knew what you were going to do. You made your way to our stroller, and my heart sunk. You moved my Little Guy's toy elephant and plucked away the big green balloon. Thanks for putting back the elephant. You handed the balloon to your little boy. What bothers me isn't that you stole from us. It's that you showed your child it is okay to steal from others. I hope your son doesn't grow up to be a thief like you.
