Amazlilith - sounds like you have a happy child
It scares me that we have to worry about these thing.
ds is 20 months and loves everyone. If he stopped smiling, waving, and relating to everyone on the subway, the world would be a colder place - seriously a shared smile especially a childs really brightens people up. Old grumpy looking men, busy rushing business women, and boys with scary hair.
that said, I wouldn't let him out of my sight, ds is with me 24 hours a day. I guess that's why I stay home, so he doesn't have to be with out me or his mom at all. So he doesn't have to have the "don't trust strangers" talk until ... I don't know when until but not yet.
When would you all have that talk?
