This morning Alyssa and I decided to take our boys and meet up for a coffee. We were enjoying our drinks (and cake!) on the corner sofas when a man came in and sat down at one of the tables near us.
Lucas started being a little upset and Alyssa was working really hard to calm him down and keep his crying to a minimum. She was doing a great job, he was just having a fairly quiet grizzle that didn’t last very long at all really, not even full blown wailing. Didn’t stop this horrid man from quite deliberatly turning around in his seat and giving us the most obnoxious glares and stern looks though.
Made me quite cross.
I always feel so terrible being out in public if Sam starts telling me he’s unhappy as I don’t enjoy submitting other people to upset baby noises. It’s bad enough struggling to keep baby happy while imagining all the thoughts other people are having about you being a bad mum without nasty people like this bloke making pointed gestures.
It’s not like Alyssa and I were sat there ignoring our babies cries! It made me quite upset that some horrid people obviously don’t think that mums and babies should be let out of the house to intrude upon their doing their very important crosswords. Babies do have a tendency to cry, that’s the only way they can communicate right now and I think it’s jolly inconsiderate for someone to act like that when the mum is clearly doing her best to keep her baby happy, and managing that really well.
Good job he had his back to us, else I’d have been tempted to do a nurse-in in front of him, bet he’d have had something to say about that too.
*shakes fist at obnoxious, rude (not so) gentleman in coffee shop this morning*
Other than that we had a lovely morning. Sam was in a great mood and gave us lots of lovely smiles and drooled everywhere. He drools a lot at the moment, might be time to get all those bibs out of the cupboard if he keeps it up!
