Guess Who's Expecting?!

Not me! At a function last night, an older man, a complete stranger walked up and asked where Allen was and then asked which kids were ours, then as he pointed at my stomach asked, "And your due again when?" I let him know that I was just fat. Then he said, "wow, 4 kids, you guys need a bigger tv."

I wanted to smart off and let him know that his tummy might be more easily mistaken for pregnancy than mine, but I didn't. I just pointed him in the direction of my hubby. I was more shocked by the 2nd comment than the 1st, as we were at a home-school event and at a church that truly believes that children are a gift and you don't turn down a gift from God. 11 of the probably 20 families participating had a minimum of 4 children. When he said this, I was waiting in the refreshment line with the girls.

I had previously while waiting been debating with myself as to whether I really wanted to use my points on cake or not. I decided that I did. Not only did I get a piece of wonderful, non store bought, but melt in your mouth cake, it had a wonderfully thick layer of the creamiest frosting. I also added some nuts to the side and grabbed a cup of punch. I wanted to just shove the whole peice in and smile and wave to the gentleman and give him a thumbs up from across the room, but I didn't.

I have lost 16 lbs now down from the weight I was at when I got pregnant with Wyatt, however have a long ways to go. It was new motivation to get on the treadmill today.

Seriously, why do people have to be so rude?

And I honestly don't get the second comment. What is that about anyway?

Love all the pictures, so fun!

How unbelievably RUDE!

I had a woman from our old church ask me if I was expecting the other day. I sweetly said "no, I wish!". She hightailed it away very quickly! Thankfully I know she wasn't being rude in any way so I didn't take offense, but it made me realize how very big I must be now :P

Some folks are just way to liberal with their opinions and what they have to say. I've been watching my carbs, which works best for me. I need to update that page on my that I'm back on track!
