The Worst Thing I Saw All Week

Farrah’s First Rice Ceremony or Annaprasan is coming up and I was hunting down a shiny top for her on Amazon and Etsy.  While I didn’t find a silk or satin onesie (go figure) I did find this:

Mixed Baby

Yours for $15.99 on a page I won’t promote here.

This reminded me of the time someone referred to Arlo as my “IVF Baby”.  I asked her to refrain from such labels, which seemed appropriate since we were at a Fertility Support Group meeting.

Everyone loves a Mixed Baby.  A Mixed Baby.  Perhaps I’m more sensitive what with Durga Puja last week (I was the whitest person there and that’s saying something for Wisconsin) .  Or perhaps not.  Perhaps it’s just dumb to label people and even worse to label babies.  Literally:

A baby is not a Packers fan.  He very well may not love his aunt or even girls for that matter.  She was not born to shop or be a princess.  If there’s one trend in children’s fashion I despise, it is this.  I will let my children speak for themselves and until then I remain Mum.

A fair and happy weekend to you all, Dear Readers.
