So we went to catch up with an old friend we haven’t seen in a long time. This is the first time he’s meeting the baby.
He was already at the pub and when we arrived, we were shown to where he was sitting by a very overly enthusiastic manager. She immediately zoned in onto the baby. Without asking, she started touching him, hooking his little fingers with her hands and touching his face. I was horrified. She kept coming back to our table to look at the baby.
“I’m extremely clucky.”, she informed us.
Me, being the crazy hygiene crazy mother that I am dabbed a serviette with the water on the table and wiped his hands and face. Baby puts his hands in his mouth all the time. You can imagine what went through my head.
He was getting sleepy and needing a feed. So my partner started feeding him. We could spot her dashing to us from across the room and about to take the bottle off him and ‘offered’ to feed him. We both said in unison, rather loudly, “No thanks!”
Back off lady! Your screaming ovaries are frightening my child. Don’t go touching babies without permission.
