Not too young to be a shallow ageist
I'm pretty sure of it. Baby prefers the young and pretty.
She made goo-goo eyes at the attractively presented young retail staff at the duty free beauty counters.
She cries when she gets a cuddle from a senior citizen. Up until about a month ago, this included her own grandmother.
When I took Baby to our GP to get her checked out, just to make sure there's nothing medical standing in the way of full-on sleep training (we aim to start this coming weekend), she absolutely charmed the pants off the elegant young woman sitting next to us in the waiting room.
But the kindly, bespectacled old gent who very gently looked into her ears and listened to her lungs, made Baby burst into tears.
Perhaps it's not too late to start using eye wrinkle cream.
