Lesson #132: They Just Don’t Know

A few days ago, we ran into a couple of people in the store that my husband knew. They stopped to chat and the gentleman looked over at Mila, binky in mouth and exclaimed, “what are you doing with that thing in your mouth? You’re too big for that!” Then he turned to me and asked, “how old is she, 3, 4 years old?”

I quickly replied, “17 months”. The look on his face was priceless. “Oh! Then I apologize; you’re not too old for the binky.” He then looked at Dan and said, “you make a big baby!”

I couldn’t do anything but laugh. That just goes to show – if you don’t know, just keep your mouth shut. And by the way, I’ve been tirelessly trying to get that pesky thing away from her and Mila’s not having it.
