I’m not sure whether to be amused or annoyed by the things people say to Deena when they see her baby bump. It’s eerie how these questions are always the same, without exception. There must have been some law passed by a woman’s magazine way back when that set these in stone.
I guess I’ll be amused because the questions are all well-meant and harmless. At least there have been a minimal number of unsolicited bump-fondles. (I told Deena that if someone does that to her, she should immediately rub their1 tummy right back.)
It will be interesting to learn what the Newborn Baby FAQs will be. I’m looking forward to it.
