I’m waiting in a check out line with my four month old daughter. An older woman behind me starts doing the normal waving and smiling at her that a lot of people do to babies.

Then, too fast for me to react, the woman says to my daughter, “Do you have teeth yet?” And sticks her fingers in my daughter’s mouth to check! I pulled my daughter back to me as she started crying and the woman says to her, “Oh, what’s wrong, Baby?”

Holding my crying daughter close, I said harshly, “Maybe she doesn’t like strangers sticking fingers in her mouth!” The woman went wide-eyed and scurried away, maybe finally learning that just because babies are tiny doesn’t mean they’re toys. Probably not, but I can hope.
