Lack of Boundaries

We've become painfully aware of the idiotic cultural norm that says babies are public property. Nothing else can explain why strangers (e.g. friends of friends, etc.) will touch Eli's hand or face the first time they meet us, without asking, or even extend their arms as if we're supposed to just hand him over like a puppy for them to enjoy.

Would you let a "friend-of-a-friend" hold your freshly minted $10,000 bill to appreciate its unique design? I don't think so. At the same time, my newborn son is a million times more important than that to me.
