My daughter who is 6 months old is laying on the floor and sucking her toes. All smiley and chubby and gorgeous. My friend looks down at her and says...."One day a man is going to love that you can get into that position."
Yuck it made my skin crawl...am I a prude? I don't think I am I think it's a horrible thing to say.

sorry I did laugh grinblush..but then I have an awful sense of humour sometimes...I was talking to someone once and said 'I wish babies bounced...then when you felt like chucking them out the window they would'nt get hurt but you'd feel a hell of a lot better(after a bout of serious bawling)'..the look on their face..hahaha

Sorry..ahem.. (adjusts humour) it was very inappropriate indeed angry

That made me cringe. Totally inappropriate thing to say about a baby IMO.

Fluffypoms Fri 14-Aug-09 23:10:45

shock Not nice!

It is grim that your friends thought processes are so baseline.

Hmm, tough one to call. I mean, your DD is 6mo so could not understand what was said. My DS (15wo) has a habit of pulling off my boob when feeding and I regularly joke to friends and DH that one day, he will be hoping for women to willingly shove their boobs in his face, as opposed to turning away. Then again, I admit to having a risqué sense of humour. However, I would not joke like that in front of him if he was old enough to understand (hence the difference between child-appropriate versus adult-appropriate humour). I guess YANBU as, for you, was obviously not the most pleasant thing to hear about your DD. Then again, if a friend joked like that to me if I had a DD, I'd probably snort my head off with laughter blush

It gets worse......
I was just chatting with a mutual friend and mentioned it to her. She was telling me that she had made a similar comment to her about her 6 month old. The baby had been sucking some sort of toy and the friend had said..."She is getting in good training to make a man very happy."
Really bizarre.
Maybe I find it so shocking because it just isn't the kind of thing I would ever think of when I am looking at a baby doing baby things

Your friend is a weirdo imo....angry

differentID Sat 15-Aug-09 00:16:28

that is disturbing.

AppleHEAD Sat 15-Aug-09 10:30:37

Guess I should try not to think about it and just work on the basis our sense of humour is VERY different

QuintessentialShadows Sat 15-Aug-09 10:32:47

Does your friend see babies as sexual?

Very disturbing.

HumphreyCobbler Sat 15-Aug-09 10:36:31

just say bluntly that her comments are not funny

poshsinglemum Sat 15-Aug-09 10:59:30
