omfg. And this is why you don’t try and touch a strangers baby. You are definitely a better person than I because I would have lost it. Right there in public on the street. Yeah, I know, not polite, but seriously? Kindergarteners know to keep their hands to themselves!

I don’t know what it is about pregnancy and babies that make complete strangers think it’s okay to feel up you and your bump/baby, but there’s something that must scream, “Who needs personal space, grab away!” And of course you’re the bad guy when you act like they’re out of line.
I can tell you right now, I don’t care what strangers will think of me, when my time comes I will be a complete and utter Nazi about unsolicited groping of myself or my offspring. I’ve already told DH that when I’m pregnant, anyone who tries to touch my belly forfeits the ownership of their hand. I can only imagine how that will escalate when it’s my actual kid they’re reaching for.

See I knew I wasn’t the only one!!! 🙂
My hubby thinks I’m insane and a Nazi about hand washing. I will tell people they can see with their eyes not with their hands just like I tell my son and step-daughters.
The other thing that I will be enforcing is no thumb sucking, my step-daughters suck their thumbs and were not raised to wash their hands, you can bet that they won’t touch their baby sister until hands are washed. They youngest has been hospitalized TWICE not once but twice with a staph infection in her spine that almost paralyzed her. And you know how she got that? Sucking her thumb at daycare, it entered through a bad blister on her thumb.
Sorry I went off on my own little vent.
Maybe taking a blanket with you, and covering the carseat or stroller with that when you see a strangers hands stretched out 😉 Sorry she’s sleeping!
