No Touchy, Touchy.

Annabel is cute. I mean, really cute. And I'm not just saying that because I'm her mom. But even if she wasn't, I'm pretty sure we would still get harangued by baby-touchers. That's you folks out there who are overcome with an overwhelming urge to cuddle all the wee ones you come across. Or at the very least, tickle their feet. This is the strange phenomenon that happens whenever I take Annabel anywhere. We are perpetually accosted by peeps who fall all over themselves trying to win a smile from the little miss. And it's as though they believe they have a RIGHT to pat my baby. (Seriously, more people ask for permission to pet my dog than my baby!) But babes deserve their personal space just like the rest of us. I explore this topic in the latest issue of Swerve to remind everyone that the next time you see a baby and are inclined to wave your finger in her face, remember it's only okay if the baby (and her parents) are also okay with it!
