I didn’t want to be one of those people who talk about every thing her child has ever said or done.
Instead I became one of those people who talk about her cat.
Realizing this, I now I try to talk about neither.
Because while people often ask about the babe, when I begin to chat about what he did or said, their eyes start to glaze over so I know they really aren’t that interested.
Thankfully, most people like to talk about themselves so it’s easy to steer the conversation in a direction they are interested in.
