Whenever I go out with my friend, all the attention goes to her child, it seems.
Not biased or anything, but I love MINE, and sometimes it bothers me when people pay attention to her child and not mine.
But I usually just focus on my child when a situation like that happens. I don't know why, but I can't partake in their "oohs" and "aaahs".
On the other hand, when we go out in public, alone, I get comments on Caleb, and his older brother, sitting right in front of the people (at 3 years old) gets NO comments at all. I think this is RUDE RUDE RUDE, so I always make comments myself about what a GREAT older brother Owen is...
It's hard!! People want to comment on babies, and that's great, but what example are their well meaning comments giving our babies???
When they comment to me, I usually just say "yah, I love him, too!"... I really don't know how else to comment... Obviously they're BEAUTIFUL! They're BABIES!!!
I know this doesn't answer your question, but felt compelled to post, anyway!
