You would think people might think a parent might feel more vulnerable to random strangers when they are holding a tiny baby who looks little more than a day old. Instead a baby becomes an open invitaton for anyone to talk to you about the most intimate of personal details. Asking if it was a natural birth etc, what do they want to hear ? What do they get out of hearing that information ? I'm almost creeped out enough by complete strangers who smile at us. What is it about other peoples babies, that makes people smile?
Another thing is, if you are walking around with a baby and you're a guy and you're walking with a male friend, people just assume you're gay dads, not that i'm offended by that but I am by the looks some people give you. They've created an idea themselves that they can't handle or that makes them uncomfortable, even though it is in no way represented by the reality of what they're actually seeing. Dick's.
