Five On Friday Is All About Babies

Yes it is. Five on Friday's Baby Talk.

1. Are there any babies in your family or circle of friends? Not as such, although there will be pretty soon. Also, one of The Child's dance teachers just had a baby (allegedly--we'll hear the official word tomorrow, I imagine), and one of my team at work just had a daughter. Well, he didn't, his wife did, but you know what I mean.

2. Are you one of those people who use a high-pitched, sing-song voice when talking to babies and small children? Nope. Don't believe in it. If you're playing, it's one thing, but I think that kids should grow up hearing the way people actually talk.

3. If you were standing in line next to a *very* pregnant stranger at the bank or grocery store, what would you say to her? Not a goddamn thing. I wouldn't say anything to her if she wasn't pregnant; why would I say anything to her if she was?

4. Similarly, what do you say or do near babies in public? I admit it...I smile, make faces and play peek-a-boo. I'm terrible.

5. When walking through a department store, are you the sort of person who can go by the baby clothes without even a glance or do you have to stop to ooh and ahh? The former. The clothes are not interesting to me.
