Dear Backseat Parents,
I’m wise to your game. It may not be acceptable to tell me what to do outright, but your thinly veiled comments and questions certainly get the point across.
“Does Lucie like baths? When was her last bath?”
“You’re so brave to take a baby on this hike. Oh, and flip flops, too!”
“Does Lucie eat well? It looks like she does.”
“I could never leave my baby while I went on vacation.”
And this one from Mama K: “How was picking up LB?” (Translation: “I’m away at a work conference and I’m checking to make sure you remembered our kid at daycare.”)
