Today, we went on our second bus ride to meet a friend for lunch. Sora once again loved the bus and slept all the way there. Of course, once we got off the bus, she woke up and screamed for almost the entire lunch hour. It wasn't until after we got back on the bus that she finally calmed down (sorry Willa!). I got a lot of those great I'm-pretending-to-feel-sorry-for-you-but-wish-your-kid-would-just-shut-up-or-you'd-leave looks (don't give me that look - I invented that look!) at the sandwich shop, on the sidewalk, at the cupcake shop, at the bus stop, and finally on the bus before it started moving and working it's magic on Sora.
On a side note: Hey lady at the sandwich shop - I don't know you. Please don't touch my baby. You really should know better since you seem old enough to have your own grandkids, who I'm sure, would also have parents who wouldn't want strangers to touch their babies. Also, yes, Sora is starting to develop a little bald spot on the back of her head. It's inevitable, and it comes from all of her curiosity - she just can't keep her head still when she's lying down. Sora knows it, I know it. We don't need you to point it out to us. We don't point out your flaws lady. Oh, and thank you for acknowledging how adorable Sora is. If you must comment, that is the one comment we never mind hearing.
And yes, dealing with Sora's growth spurts is just an excuse for me to be just a teensy bit snippy.
