WHAT?!?!?!?

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.

Unsolicited advice is SO LAME! Last week at Hobby Lobby the cashier told me I shouldn't let Maddux chew on some of the napkins we were buying because, "you never know where they've been" HELLO??!! Isn't that like dissing your own store???

Oh, man! You have got to love little old men. Why is it that htye always assume that unpregnant women are pregnant and they can't ever tell is a baby is a boy or a girl dispite their being dressed in all pink or blue???!

I would be so upset if that happened to me. You handled it so much better than I would have. That happened to my friend and she just said "I'm not pregnant, just fat!" it shut the person right up.

LOL. I just saw you at Walmart today and you didn't even look close to being pregnant! What a goofball. I hate to tell you that you just have the cutest little guy and people can't help but stop and talk about him. Take it as a compliment. And ignore the ones with all the "advice" ;)

Oh Sam-you handled that better then I would! You do not look fat. Though I agree with your mama-he just saw how cute Gray is and wanted you to have bundles more! Miss you tons!

Manth you're totally looking hot! No worries, that man was seeing things. People really do just think they can start giving all kinds of advice to me too. No, thanks anyways!
Those are the greatest pictures of birthday Grayson! He was so funny. Thanks so much for having the party when we were there.
