Maternity Clothes

So, I am finally showing...I look like I'm three or four months pregnant instead of 6 but there it is. Now, I had an experience yesterday that made me laugh and I hope everyone else sees the hilarity of the situation. The entirety of the conversation with this lady was pretty much this.

"So when do you start wearing maternity clothes? Because you're finally getting big."

I was taken aback. I thought that the dress I was wearing was cute on a pregnant lady. I turned to my husband and sister-in-law and asked if the dress didn't fit because the only cause for the statement in my mind was that what I was wearing didn't fit and I needed to find something that did... I was reassured that it did fit and that it also looked cute.

So my only conclusion to the whole thing is that I'm getting fat and the times have changed for what pregnant women wear.

Alright, I just had this story pop back into my head and I need to make sure I get it down before I forget again. The Blairs, Evie and I went to the Home Depot the other day and while we were handing out in the dryer/washer isle, Evie found these dryer vent caps that look like little hats. We asked her to put them back as we were leaving the isle and thought she had listened to us.

We were at the check out stand and pulling off the last items when we catch a glimpse of something shiny in my mother-in-law's purse. It was half way zipped up but there was something flickering at us. Mike opens the purse to find not one, but three of these wonderful little hats hiding in grandma's purse.

This is one of those moments where you feel the need as a parent to establish a principle and not have the behavior repeated but the entire family also couldn't contain the laughter at my child trying to secret this new toy out of the store. The only reason children make it into adulthood is because they can make their parents laugh.

To add to this we have started getting up to any check-out stand and there are a whole bunch of things in there that Mike and I didn't take off the shelf. Becca and I were at the store getting some stuff for the lizards the other day and I look down to find a huge, red thing of Folgers coffee in my kart. I love you my little klepto and you're not getting anywhere near my bag in the store.
