Panera lunch is my new cocktail hour

Not sure how I never noticed this before but Panera is the hottest spot for new moms and their babies.  Everytime I have gone there the past few months all I see is groups of moms fawning over their babies while eating a salad.   It is crazy!  I find myself checking out woman and their babies and using language I would if I were out for drinks with my girlfriends.  "Check out how cute he is" I may say referring to an adorable male toddler sitting a few tables over.  Or "Look at her outfit" referring to the 9 month old in a pink and flowery get up. "That is a $600 dollar stroller!"   Rhea and I really need to step up our game because when I was there last week, I forgot a burp cloth so I had to use a napkin.  I know the other mom's were looking at me, judging me.  I know for a fact at least one mom was.  My mother.  She was horrified that I was using a napkin.  She was horrified I didn't have a Sofie the Giraffe.  She was horrified Rhea didn't have socks on.  To be fair she did have socks on when we left the house but she kicked them off when we got to lunch and refused to keep them on.  She told me I need to be more like other Panera moms.  She told me to get it together!  At this point I wished Panera sold booze as I would have ordered a drink!
