What people think doesn't matter

How many parents out there worry about what other people are thinking?
Yesterday I went to football with our middle child (he is 6), big sister came too and it was a nice sunny day and we sat on the grass watching, behind us there were two mums with young babies and one of the babies was crying and a bit grumpy and you could see the mother getting worried what people were thinking and she seemed too shy to try and make her baby smile.  Isabella got a bit grumpy and so I sat her on the grass and sang nursery rhymes to her and we played with the grass and she had a good old crawl around, I didn't care what people were thinking as Isabella was having fun and when she started laughing you could see others smiling.  Too many people get hung up on not looking stupid when it shouldn't matter as long as you and your baby are having fun, who cares if you are a bad singer (I am no X factor contestant!!!!) but Isabella doesn't judge me on that (YET! lol), a happy baby is much better than a stressed parent who is worried about what everyone else is thinking. 
Remember everyone was a baby once and you need to make it as happier time as possible as you only get one chance and the people around you are not really bothered about if you look silly that is all in your mind.
