As Tyson and I were leaving Fred Meyer the other day, we happened upon a group of Science Olympiad kids who were selling candy bars. Well Tyson said it was our civic duty to support them as we are adults now and, well... preggo + candy = no brainer so it wasn't a hard sell for me.
As we were about to leave the mom that was with them asked about my pregnancy and when I was due. When I told her September she exclaimed "Oh whoa!!" a little more exuberantly than I was expecting.
At this point I was seriously expecting her to say something like "At this rate it's going to be a loooong summer!" or "Gosh, I thought you were going to say July!" or better yet "So then it's twins, right?" aka the last thing I want to hear right now.
Instead, I got, "You look amazing! Wow, that's great. And believe me I know, I've got three kids. Man, you look so good!"
Well, I just about paid that woman another $1.50 to repeat herself into my cell phone so I could make it my ring tone.
It totally made my day.
Moral of the story: even if you're lying always tell a pregnant girl that she looks good. It will do wonders for her self esteem.
