After hanging out at the home of new friends recently, I've been marveling over how incredible it was to see how they were with their two young daughters. None of that horrible helicopter hoohah, that coy coddling crap, that bullshit babytalk bunkum. I lost a long-time friend over, largely, her insistence on treating her "child" like she was the most special snowflake, the most precious teacup, the most sensitive soul to ever pirouette on the planet. How wonderful it was to see my new friends acting like their kids were just OTHER PEOPLE who just so happened to be short.
