Request to Hold Baby Rankles Mom

December 22, 2013

in Baby & Kid Stories

I was flying with my three month old son. He was strapped to me in a sling as I read a magazine in my middle seat. I had booked the seat beside me for him in case either one of us needed some space. About forty minutes into the flight, a child and her dad come over. The child plonks herself down in the seat next to me, arms outstretched.

Dad says: Can she hold the baby?

I want to say: Eff off.

I really say: Sorry, honey, he’s sleeping.

Dad glares at me. Calls me an arrogant bitch and says his daughter just wanted to “pet him.”

I forgot that my child was a dog.
