Do you sit staring at your children?

Sometimes when I'm watching TV at my mums I have caught her when she's sat on the sofa on the opposite end just staring.
I must admit, I don't feel comfortable with it and I have ended up placing the pillows in between us.

I feel very odd about it. Much like when we were out on Tuesday and some random girl took my photograph without my permission.

So rude!

[@467717,Gangstress] Well maybe I'll have to ask you, when the cats are sat just staring at you is that OK?

[@1196310,Mellowgirl] yes it's fine. They love me and probably wondering why I don't look like a cat

I felt uncomfortable being photographed the other day too. Then I remembered that I was having an x-ray due to having a suspected broken leg.

[@477979,Oneofthestormboys] Well that's what you signed up for, I haven't chosen a life of being stared at or having randoms take my photograph
