A kinder friend came up to me today and gave me a very tight squeeze.
"OH, gentle hugs!" I responded, rubbing my large baby belly.
"But I just want the baby to pop out!" she protested.
I took a moment of silence to gather myself. Apparently my friend was under the belief that if she squeezed me hard enough she could cause the baby to come popping out. Like I'm a bag of chips kids just have to pop open to get to the good stuff.
And not only did she believe this could happen, she acted on it, thinking she could make it come true.
"The baby wont come out until you are in first grade" I explained.
"BUT I WANT TO SEE THE BABY NOW!" she whined.
I backed away. No more hugs from her for awhile.
