What’s the proper response when people tell you how gorgeous your child is? I never know what to say. “Thank you” seems wrong since I didn’t personally design him like a dress or mold him like pottery. This is just what the genetic lottery gave us, and we could have easily done worse (I always expected our child to have a Chris Farley quality, and was especially afraid of it happening to a girl). “I know he’s perfect” is just rude.
I realize this is a minor issue and a good one to have, but I’m seeking your wisdom oh wise internets. What should I say when the masses fawn over my fabulous spawn? Hehe.
