I Want To Eat Your Baby

“I want to eat your baby.”  Why do women say that?

It starts with “He’s so cute.” This leads to “He’s adorable,” which levels up to “What a little munchkin!” By now, we’re on our way to “I just want to squeeze those chubby little cheeks,” which begets “Look at this LITTLE MAN!” And that much nonsense can only be trumped by … “Oh my goodness, I want to eat this baby!”

The mother, who would flip over a cement truck if it threatened her child’s life, nods in appreciation, as if it’s the highest compliment she can receive. Thank you, this nod says, I want to eat my baby, too, but I can’t say that in front of my husband (the jerk).

What’s the strangest comment you’ve ever heard about your children?
