Can I wake up your baby?
« on: August 05, 2010, 12:26:46 PM »
So taking my 3-week-old to the store seems to bring out the crazy.

I'm waiting in the check out line with Babycakes snoozing in the cart.

Strange lady: Oh, can I wake up your baby?
Me:   ??? Uh, NO.
SL: that's ok, I would have said "no" too.  (wanders away)

Wha???

Is this something that has happened more than once?  If so, you must live in Crazy Town!

Sounds like the people who bang on the glass and rattle the cages in the pet stores. They just want something to wake up and entertain them, I guess.

"If you want to stay for the next few hours and listen to the screaming."

Good work with the no.

Small babies out in public do seem to bring on the crazies.  I found that putting one of those mosquito nettings that fits over the carrier/stroller was quite effective in discouraging strangers from harrassing Baby O.

My mum used to joke about waking the baby if she'd come to visit and he'd just gone down (we didn't have much of a routine at the time, but I couldn't always keep him up for visitors). "I'll just give him a little poke and see if he wakes up".
A few times with the Glare of Death and that nonsense stopped. Wake the baby - what madness.

My mum actually did this when the boy was 11 months old. Made him cry too.  >:(
She had her evil sister with her, I called her on it and Evil actually assaulted me in my own home.
Anybody who does that to my kids gets banned. Like Evil.  >:(

Then why ask??
Why on earth would she ask something of you that she wouldn't allow if the roles were reversed?

That's just bizarre.

Heard a story once where a couple had a new baby and 5 other children ranging up to teenagers, plus friends dropping by the house. To encourage quiet during baby's naptime, they posted a sign. "Nathan's sleeping. You wake him, you take him."

I remember getting tired of calling the police on the three college guys in the other half of our duplex two decades or so ago.  I went over, rang the bell, and told them that I had just gotten her back to sleep for the third time that night.  The next time that their music woke up the not quite two year old THEY were going to be the ones rocking her to sleep.

The volume dropped quickly.............which was very unusual. 
Let sleeping dragons be.......morning breath......need I say more?

Heh, indeed.  I only wish I could use that on the teens that live next door.  Too bad they're a bunch of skinheads.
