It always blows my mind how much newborns all look the same. I never thought babies looked nice until I had mine. Now they all look like him. It has made it impossible for me to watch any movie or TV program in which a baby or small child is in any kind of danger.
Somewhat related perhaps, but I have the same problem with television shows that make light of the dead and grief. It's not that I am exceptionally touchy or anything but, after losing so many relatives and friends, I realize how insensitive such remarks can be and how unfunny they usually are. I now divide the world into two distinct camps, people who know about loss and those who don't.
Babies do all look the same when they're born don't they? But within days they become unique. I was never a "baby" person, ie not one of those women who see a baby and have to cuddle it. I loved my two babies, but wasn't the most maternal person. But when my grandson arrived I suddenly changed, and I can't explain why.And I'm totally with Stranger on not being able to watch anything showing a baby or small child in danger.
Always great to hear from visitors to Nomadic View. What's on your mind?
