Look Who’s Talking

imagesRemember the movie when Kirstie Alley plays the mom and Bruce Willis did the voice of the baby?

I was sitting on a bench in front of Dean and Deluca, a neighborhood coffee joint, when a woman came by parking her stroller directly in front of me while she blabbed on her phone.  The kid, about two, patiently sat looking at her like she had 6 heads.

I sat looking at him.  He was the sweetest in a Gap hoodie, jeans and little Keds, a bag of Rice Krispies that were supposed to keep him occupied.  At one point he threw them on the ground, so his mother, without cellular pause, picked them up.  So he just threw them again.

The third time, I picked them up and he stopped throwing them.

He wanted attention, and can you blame him?  He’s a baby.  You could almost hear him thinking.

Doesn’t she ever fucking shut-up?  Who cares if dad had the farts all night and her nail polish is discontinued. That thing is glued to her head.

Like Mikey in the movie, you saw his little wheels turning.

I was never lucky enough to be a mother, but know I’d have been a great one, probably too much so.

These babies having babies.  Designer strollers and Tods loafers do not qualify you as a good parent.

I’m kinda glad dad had the farts.  Serves her right for talking when she should have paid more attention to cooking.


About Susannah Bianchi

I'm just a girl who likes to write slightly on slant. I've had a career in fashion, dabbled in film and to be honest, I don't like talking about myself. Now my posts are another matter so I will let them speak for themselves. My eBooks, A New York Diary, Model Behavior: Friends For Life and Notes From A Working Cat can be found on Amazon.com. Thanks.

    Maybe she’s attentive at all other times and thought she deserved a little “me” time? Babies can be very demanding. Having said that, I think your analysis is the more likely to be accurate. Babies having babies indeed.

  2. First of all, I loved this movie and recently watched it yet again.
    I’m glad the dad farts too, just for her thinking Rice Krispies had the power to keep anyone occupied. Please, where are the cheddar gold fish? Step up your game mom.

    Susannah, I think her dog should get the farts, too, ha ha! If she truly is an inattentive parent, she’ll pay dearly later on.

    She better be careful or she will miss something – or everything! They grow up too fast. Yes, I believe you would have been a very attentive mother! ~Elle
