I met a mommy

Who when i asked,  “how old is he?” She looked nervous as though i had just loaded a gun. She replied, “he’s 6 monthes. He’s very small for his age.” As though she was apologizing her baby wasn’t a beefcake & i would definitely pass judgment.  I replied, “small? Im awfully big for my age, & that’s okay too. He looks healthy to me.”

She smiled sheepishly.  “Everyone always comments, so i guess i just try to beat’em to it. He was 2 months premature & is catching up. It makes me feel bad.”

Looks like our comments seem like judgements. Watch your words to children & their parents peanut gallery, you matter!
