Trish LaForty arrived home last week from swimming with her 11-month old son expecting to have a quiet afternoon with her baby.
Instead she found a note in her letterbox that left her stunned.
The Sunshine Coast mother had been left a passive aggressive note asking her to keep her baby quiet.
Trish told The Sunshine Coast Daily that when she first got the note she was devastated.
“When I first saw it I was upset. No one enjoys hearing their baby cry,” Trish said.
It read “You may be able to ignore your baby crying but we are tired of listening to him crying non-stop all day.”
She told The Daily Mail it left her “shocked and emotional. No mum wants to hear that message, regardless of how true it is.”
So Trish decided to respond.
She approached each of her neighbours in the block that she and her partner have been living in for six months.
She says they have never had any hostilities with their neighbours.
“I wanted to clear the air, but also to find out if anyone had experienced any similar notes” she said.
But no one could shed any light on who the angry letter writer was.
“I still have have no idea who it is. I guess it could be someone who sits at home all day with nothing better to do.
“Maybe they could have offered a helping hand rather than writing than writing a silly letter?”
Trish decided to respond to the writer on her local community Facebook page saying.
“Like being a parent isn’t tough enough… You didn’t even have the guts to come knock on our door.
Our baby doesn’t cry ‘all day’, he cries when he doesn’t want do go to sleep, when he’s getting his nappy changed and when I say ‘no’ because I refuse to let him be spoilt and run around like he owns the joint.
