Unhappily ever after

There was something of a startling revelation as our kids began to do things like sleep through the night, laugh and be generally happy. The revelation was that not everyone wants us to be happy.

No, no, no it's nothing sinister. But there is a certain type of person who will ask how things are, and if we tell them good news (e.g The kids started sleeping through the night! Or They're such happy babies, etc.) these people will follow up almost immediately with something like 'Wait till they start teething!' or 'Wait till they start getting into everything.'

I haven't been reduced to tears yet. But I have had to keep myself from petulantly telling them to shut their stupid mouths. 'Cause, seriously, I don't want to hear it.
