I like babies. I love when people I know have babies and tell me about them, show me pictures, or best of all let me hold them. Babies are cute and their little newborn cries don’t even bother me.
But here’s a short little rant about what I don’t get about babies:
Why…WHY do we have an obsession with the pounds and inches of them when they are born. They are almost always average. Rarely are they under 5 pounds. They are almost never over 9 pounds and they usually fall somewhere in the middle. I mean, can’t we just say they are big, average or small? I feel like it’s a dumb fact I am supposed to remember for future quizzing.
I’m really not trying to be cynical here, I just don’t care how many inches your baby is. I just care if you let me hold it and squueze it’s cheeks.
Thank you for listening. Good Night.
