No Touchie!

Raise your hand if you think its weird when strangers come up to you and touch your belly (while pregnant) or your new little baby?! Its one thing when people you know do it (doesnt bother me at all!) but when some smelly random person at Walmart comes up to you to cop a feel of your baby bump thats a different story! What are people thinking..who does that?! I can only imagine how it feels for strange people to bombard your new little baby! The thought of it makes me cringe! I just found this on one of the awesome sites that i frequent..and ive got to make me one of these babies!


..And she calls it the 'The Greeter Deterrent.' Hilarious! :0) Check out the tutorial HERE...and make me one while youre at it ;0) jk

  1. Oh yeah, there's going to be a fine line between not wanting people to actually touch your baby and "git all up" on them, but being somewhat annoyed when people don't gush over how adorable they are, either. :)

    I like the Greeter Deterrent! Clever idea!

  3. Okay this one time I was checking out at the grocery store and this lady that didnt speak english walked up and started rubbing Patricks face and and he was maybe 4 or 5 months old and I'm thinking "I don't know you, I dont know where your hands have been. STOP TOUCHING MY BABY!!!!" I kind of pulled him away and smiled and walked off. Crazy lady.

  4. That's a super cute cover. My friend has a car seat cover (store bought) that has a little plastic window on the front--I liked that cause then the people can SEE the baby without touching/sneezing/breathing on them. :) I have one like the one you showed though and LOVED it.

    Okay, seriously though, if you weren't pregnant would it be okay for some random person to walk up and touch your stomach? NO! That'd be FREAKISH! So what on earth gives people the right to do it when you ARE pregnant?!

  7. I don't have lil one's yet, but I completely agree. I think it's so rude and thoughtless to rub on a stranger's baby bump. I love the carrier cover though...great idea :)

    Raise your hand if you think its weird that people take pictures of their pregnant bellies and post them on the internet...

    Awkward

  12. Thaddius, There is nothing wrong with being excited about having a baby and capturing lasting memories of being pregnant..just because some people would rather die then have a picture taken of them while pregnant, it doesnt mean i have to be one of those ;0)
