Things Mom Say #1-5

“Your daughter isn’t crawling because you hold her too much.” - Um, have we met before? Have you ever seen me rear, parent, mother, encourage, discipline my children? What is your name again? Oh, we’ve never met?

“Your baby is 11 months? You should probably say she is 9 months since she is so little.” - Once again, thank you stranger. I will happily lie about my child’s age henceforth. Maybe it is because I stopped breast feeding her at 10 months. ;)

“Would it be weird if I grabbed your baby and tickled her feet?” -Yes. When you use the word grab and then commence to talk about my children, YES, it is weird. Perhaps next time say, she has cute feet.

“Hi, nice to meet you. I’m assuming their Dad is black?” - Um, yes…. Is your Dad white? I mean…with the white skin and all…

“Sometimes you just need a teddy bear huh?” – This one was actually funny since I WAS in fact clutching Gooner’s teddybear in my arms…while out and about. I’d forgotten that Gooner had handed him to me…

    You make me smile! I’m glad you’re back!

  2. I just got told by an old lady, “Honey, I sure hope you’re fixed!” Yep. Just blogged about that one. Love this list though. Why can’t people mind their own business?

  3. Wow, some people I tell you….goodness.

  4. The Mommy

    It is amazing what people say. I always hope that they didn’t think first because that is the only things that makes it even somewhat acceptable.

    Haha! Besides the fact that these are generally insensitive, annoying, rude, gross, etc., they did crack me up. Lucky you?

  6. There is no such thing as holding a baby too much, that’s just crazy talk. As for being little, who cares? When they are your children they are perfect no matter what. When Emry was born she had a huge crease from you nose to her eyebrow. I gasped as I though, “oh how cute, I just love that crease”. After a few weeks she filled in and it went away. I never really noticed when, it didn’t matter because no matter what she was perfect.

    Oh and welcome back. I think people love the honesty, in regards to your last post.
