I do not, nor will I ever (most likely) have children. But I’m curious…are some babies born as just absolute holy terrors? I’m not talking about by the time they are toddlers or teenagers, or even when babies don’t sleep or get colic. I mean newborns. Are some newborns simply awful?
Because I’m seeing a lot of Facebook posts by new moms with something along these lines: “Here’s baby Susie, 8 lb. 4 oz. She couldn’t be any sweeter!”
Were these parents expecting to birth mouthy, attitude-ridden babies? Isn’t every newborn “the sweetest”? And why is it necessary to announce that a newborn is “sweet” if all of them are?
I want to see a Facebook status that says this: “Here’s baby Susie, 8 lb, 4 oz. We can’t wait until she moves out.” Or “Here’s baby Jonny. He’s clearly a dirtbag.”
I think Facebook is making me cranky.
