I did not want to disappear yesterday evening while politely listening to details of friends’ pregnancy. This has not happened since July. Only three months to go!
On the other hand, fielded so many comments while holding other friend’s baby so she could teach at church. What is it about me holding an infant that gives people license to stay the most idiotic things? A sampler from ONE DAY:
- “You should get yourself one of those.” Thank you. I’ll pick it up with the milk next time I’m at the store.
- “Hope this doesn’t convince you not to have kids!” No, but the thought that they might be as nosy as you makes me think twice.
- “Whoa, you’re fast!” That’s right, I conceived and bore a child within the past week, thanks for noticing. It was practically no wait at all!
What a day.
