So we were in the library, renewing a book. Reading helps me keep my sanity. Anyway, we were getting the normal "Oh what a cute baby! Look at those big eyes!" from different people. One of them was an older gentleman, at least 60 is my best guess, and he said similar things then as we were both finished checking out he asks me, "Is she old enough to have candy?"
I considered the possibility that he was old enough that he didn't understand how this sounded, so I remained polite.
"Oh no. I know she looks big but she's tall for her age. It's still a choking hazard at this point."
And we went our separate ways. But I had to get this out somewhere! REALLY!!? Have you never heard the term strangers with candy? Seriously!? Even if he lives in that wonderful world I was trying to give him the benefit of the doubt on. Think before you speak people!!
Thanks! I feel better now! ;)
