That Indian Couple had the Cutest baby Girl
Yesterday, Nick and I took the kids to the strip to meet Nick's sister and parents (they were here staying in a hotel attending an optometry conference). We met them at a cool tapa restaurant right on the strip attached to the Fashion Show mall. One of my least favorite things to do with my children right now is to take them to restaurants. They are at the WORST possible age. Anyway, we knew the grandparents would want to see the kids so we didn't get a babysitter. This made for a long, sticky, germy, teary, loud night.
Now, Nick knows I think the strip is just an entire germ capsule carrying meningitis, and HIV, and I really don't like touching anything along it, so of course I hate my kids being there. In fact, I was holding Easton at one point, and this old guy comes up and tries to hold him, I immiediatly pull back and say he's shy and doesn't like strangers. Then I go tell Nick about it.
Well, to make a long story short. Nick and his parents and sister were in the mall after we had eaten, and I decided I wanted dessert, so I left them with the kids and ran to get a chocolate cake. The cake ended up taking 20 minutes, and by the time I got back I had been gone almost a half hour (not worth it). As I am coming down the escalator, I see this Indian couple holding a really cute little girl, and think to myself...cute baby. Then I realize IT IS MY BABY. Nicks dad is getting a chair massage, Nick's mom is in Starbucks trying to find napkins to clean up the babies who Nick had just fed a shake to (their third shake of the night), and Nicks sister is standing there trying not to bust up at the look on my face when I see whats going on. Nick procedes to tell me that these people holding my child were not strangers. Apparently they had been talking to them for 15 minutes, and in Nicks words "formed a great relationship". I guess good enough to hand his child off to them. Who does this sort of thing???? Its fair to say, I was not PLEASED with last night. Great to see the fam though.
