Is He A Good Baby?

All throughout pregnancy you are faced with typical questions.. "How are you feeling?", "Do you know what you're having?", "Are you excited?".. I'm sure every woman has been asked those three questions at least 28 times while sporting the bump.
While one may get tired of answering them, they are straight-forward and easy to answer.
"Crappy.", "A baby.", "Duh."
After you have said baby, the questions change and are no longer about you, but rather the cute little guy or gal you carry with you (on the outside of you womb). There's the "How old is he?". Easy.
Then there's the "Is he a good baby?". Um.. yes? Maybe? What kind of question is that?
Do they want to know if he cries? Don't all babies cry?
If your baby cries less than 5 times a day they're a good baby and if they cry 6 or more they are bad?
Is it about eaiting habits? Mason gets distracted a lot, he must be bad..
But wait, he is really good at sucking on a pacifier, sitting up, and pooping, so he's good..
But, he gets drool everywhere..
Oh, he has the sweetest giggle though..
Sometimes he's really hard to put to sleep.. At night, he's an excellent sleeper..

I guess I will never understand the point of (or know the answer to) this question. Unless someone can enlighten me?

My reply would be, "Oh, no. He's a little asshole." That would probably ward those annoying people off quicker than anything else.
