I had to laugh when Luv’s came out with their First Kid/Second Kid campaign. I mentioned before I was pretty lucky to have 13 nieces and nephews born before I had my little man, so I felt like I knew what was coming. But things sure change when it’s YOUR baby. And now that I have a baby, I love listening to my friends who aren’t parents yet say things like,
“My child will NEVER do that!”
Because as parents we all know your child WILL do that :) It’s just the way kids are. As you grow as a parent you learn to react better to different situations. Especially when strangers feel the need to butt in and make comments. This has been on my mind this last couple weeks. Last week at church I didn’t have my little boy with me and I was mistaken for a 15 year old. Don’t get me wrong, I was totally flattered, but you can imagine the looks I have been getting when I am in public with all with my own baby and his 3 cousins I am watching. I probably get asked by at least 3 people per store if they’re all mine and how old I am. Some people are SUPER snotty about it, and you can tell the other people mean well. I have been smiling and answering sweetly to all of them, but now I am just done. I totally understand now what people with a lot of kids go through! It isn’t ANYONE’S business but my own if these kids are all mine or not! One of these days I won’t be able to smile and will have a snarky comeback. Anyone have any suggestions?
Anyway, Luv’s took the story of this Mom and how she handled a rude stranger and made it into a commercial. It’s pretty funny, and the whole series had me giggling. If you have time and enjoy a good laugh, check them out!
Luv’s sent me some diapers as a thank you for sharing those videos! If I didn’t the video was funny, I wouldn’t have posted it All opinions are my own … including what I think of nosy strangers!
