Years ago, before I had my children, a friend declared to me that she would never have kids because “Kids are weird.”
Almost instantly, I felt defensive of children everywhere. Weren’t we all, after all, a little bit weird? It seemed unfair to single out society’s youngest members as somehow more bizarre than everyone else.
Two babies later, I’ve changed my mind. I don’t feel quite experienced enough to categorically label all kids are weird, but babies? Yes, they are weird.
Cute. But weird.
And so, without further adieu, check out this list of six weird — yet common — things that babies do. I certainly wasn’t prepared for these little surprises before my children were born. Were you?
