i’m not looking.

In about me, babies in adult places, childfree, new moms on September 8, 2011 at 4:07 am

parents seem to get this idea that everyone just wants to have the pleasure of gazing at their baby/child.

i was in the bathroom the other day (well, everyday, actually) and this woman was changing her baby on the change table. gak. that’s the last thing i want to see (or smell). while she was at it, there seemed to be a constant stream of people lining up to look at the baby. they soon all cleared out and there was me, washing my hands. she looked over and smiled, as if to say, ‘it’s your turn, now… behold this beautiful child.’

anyway, i gave her a mild stink eye, turned of the faucet and dried my hands – looking in the opposite direction.

this kind of thing happens all the time. parents seem to be expecting to be showered with praise for producing such fine specimens.

not me. i’m not even taking a look.

workplace + childfree = i’ma go apeshit soon. 4.

In babies in adult places, childfree, manners, new moms on June 5, 2011 at 4:52 am

when bringing the new baby to the office for a visit, here are a couple of places it is not ok to change its diaper:

1. the lunch table (true story)

2. the kitchen counter. (also true – and though i didn’t personally witness this event i hear there wasn’t even a changing pad involved to avert cross-contamination. gak.)

ps. let me point out that these are just 2 in a long list of many. i’ve only listed these ones because they seem to be a bit baffling to some mothers. really?
