They loooove mauling newborn babies, even when it’s not theirs.
Women will walk up to a complete stranger and admire her baby. This is just a passive aggressive attempt to put her claws on a strange person’s Bundle of Joy.
Women will befriend the new mom at Preschool just to swoon in and cuddle her baby.
Women will smile at a mom they don’t even like while sending a subliminal message “I wanna touch your newborn”.
I am not one of them.
I feel the same way about babies that I do dogs:
I love and appreciate mine, but have zero interest in petting or canoodling with someone else’s.
I know…everyone loves that smell. Yes, the baby/infant aroma is lovely…until you get a whiff of their poopy diaper/gas/vomit.
Holding someone else’s kid is like driving someone else’s car.
She was eating just fine til Nora held her.
Her eye didn’t twitch like that til Nora held her.
She was sleeping through the night til Nora held her.
NOPE! I don’t need any extra responsibilities, headaches, or hassles, so ya’ll can hold your own babies!
And what about poor baby…being passed around and handled like a church collection plate.
Don’t worry ladies, your babies are safe around me. I’d much rather hold your Gucci or Chloe bag!
