We just went out to dinner. The food was delicious, service was quick and our server was very nice. However, he would not stop tickling my baby girl!
As a former server, I think about his hands picking up dirty dishes, greasy food and soaking in dishwater – right before touching Em’s cheek, tickling her toes, and patting her head. Sure, servers was hands, but they get busy to do it all the time.
Did I say anything? No. People have no boundaries when it comes to babies, but he was a very nice server excited about his new baby and I didn’t want to be rude.
But realizing the lack of boundaries brought me to this question: as a mama, is it more intrusive when people (friends, family OR strangers) rub your pregnant tummy or when they touch your baby?
