halloween. at the office. what better time for everyone to bring their adorbs babies into the office to show off their costumes, i swear – these stay-at-home moms need something to keep them busier.
and then it gets awkward when the mom stands in front of me, while i’m trying to eat my lunch in peace, waiting for me to googoo all over the baby in whatever furry animal costume its wearing. sorry lady – i don’t follow the latest cartoons for tots and i’m sure i have no idea what your kid is supposed to be. and i’m also pretty sure that it’s far too young to be eating chocolate so maybe you should just put on a costume for yourself since the only reason you came in here in the first place was to get candy for yourself.

ok, since i read this, i’m officially finished complaining about any baby incidents at work. until something else happens.
but thank god no one at work brings their kid in every single day. like this italian mep, licia ronzulli. she started taking her baby to work at 6 months – and has continued ever since! omfg. the baby’s now a toddler and there are even pictures of her voting in parliament with her mother. let’s hope those votes don’t count.
it turns out bootsy really doesn’t have much to complain about after all.
and furthermore, why the heck is offbeat momma giving her a “two thumbs up”? there’s no explanation, only a summary of the story that originally appeared in the guardian. but i can’t imagine any situation where it would ever be ok to have a baby sitting on your lap while in parliament. either you have a job, or you’re a mom. i appreciate that women are capable of doing both, but please – if you want to be taken seriously as a professional, and to keep from marring the reputation of all womankind – please, please don’t intersect the two roles. the rest of us struggle hard enough to be taken seriously by our professional male peers.
