Does this ever happen to anyone else? It seems like having a baby with you (or being pregnant) gives every random person you see a right to talk to you and/or give you unsolicited advice. The other day in the mall, a guy stopped us and scolded me for letting Grayson still have a binki -- he told me I was going to ruin his teeth. And today in Walmart, a guy came up to us and just struck up a converstion. He was nice enough -- just chatting about how fun this age is, how cute Gray is, yada yada. And then he points to my stomach and says "So is this next one a girl?". WHAT!? Did you just seriously assume that I'm pregnant?! Don't you know that is taboo question numero uno?!? I didn't know what to say! He was a nice little old man, and I didn't want to embarrass him. So I just said, "Well, we don't know". And then he got all excited and praised us for "not finding out" just like the "old days". Oh my goodness. I just smiled and thanked him for his congratulations, and walked off to buy myself some Slim-fast. Guess I need it.
