|Invasive Inquiries||Perfectly Polite||Wonderful Wisecracks||Laughable Lies|
How long are you going to let her sleep in your bed?
|Until she's ready to move into her own room.||Until I feel like having sex again.||We'll probably draw the line at 13 or 14 years.|
|When are you going to stop giving him a bottle in the middle of the night?||We're waiting to see if he outgrows the need for it soon.||When are you going to mind your own business?||Oh we don't get up! He can make it all by himself.|
|Is he still drinking from a bottle?||He can drink from a cup, but prefers the bottle at nighttime.||He's just doing it to annoy you.||Of course! Didn't you know that doctors are recommending bottles until kindergarten?|
|How can you let her eat those potato chips?||She eats a healthy diet, so a few snacks are fine.||They go really well with her favorite beer.||This brand is fortified with 10 essential vitamins and minerals.|
|When are you going to stop breastfeeding?||Probably when she turns one.||When I've saved up enough money to buy breasts this big!||I weaned her months ago; she's just doing this out of habit!|
|You should put him in Time Out for talking back.||Thanks, but I've got it under control.||Really? It didn't work for you.||I'll chain him to the radiator when we get home.|
He's not potty trained yet?
|We're working on it.||Hey, my husband isn't either, so give the kid a break!||He was born without a bladder, so it could take a few more years.|
Why do you still let her use a pacifier?
|Our doctor says it's not a problem and she'll give it up in good time.||Because she can't talk when it's in her mouth.||A recent study linked pacifiers use to IQ scores, so we're all for it!|
