    Screwy I just Don't Get it...

    Advertisements
    We will go out and have Naomi in her carseat. She has a cover over it with a little head hole and because it's snowy and 30 degrees here it is normally shut.

    We will go into a place to eat or a store and without fail at least 1 person a visit asks

    "Oh is there a baby in there?" or "Is there anything in there."

    It has happened probably 20 times since she was born and I just don't get it

    The last time we were ask DH said later if a proper response would be "No it has a bomb in it we just carry it around to see when it will go off. It's a fun game of chicken." I told him he would probably go to jail for joking like that. I always want to (but for some reason never do) just want to reply with "No we just carry an empty car seat around for the heck of it." or "Nope it's just a fashion piece."

    Is it just my area or what? Has anyone ever ask you that?
    It just doesn't seem like a logical question to ask- I mean who would carry an empty carseat around no baby in site?

    I've seen people with dolls, plastic bags full of plastic bags, dogs, and various/sundry items in their baby buggies. I have learned to not assume there is a baby in there.

    People are just idiots. With ODSD, she had this blue outfit with little fishes on it. We would put a HUGEEEE bow on her head, in her PINK car seat or PINK buggy... and people would still say, "Oh, what a cute little boy!" My husband's distant relative did that once and I wanted to ask them if they were dropped on their head as an infant.... seriously.

    This isn't a buggie though it's her infant carseat. Like we pop it out of the car with her in it and haul the heavy arse this around the store. And people ask of there is a baby inside

    It cracks me up sometimes the things people say.

    In infant seats? Really???

    A dog in something like this? It's this kind of seat we are carrying her in.




    Must be though adorable long eyelashes that get him mistaken for a girl
