How Irresponsible!

Hi Friends!

I have just returned home from a lovely long weekend with my sister, her hubby, and the two kiddos. What a wonderful time with the kiddos (and the adults, too, I guess). They are just so sweet! Unfortunately, I only got my camera out about twice during my entire stay so I don't have much to share. But, I do have one funny story.

Last night, we went out for All You Can Eat Fish and Chips (um, yum) after Little H's swimming lesson. As we were leaving the restaurant, K was carrying H and I was carrying A's infant seat. I said to my sister that I was worried that people would think she was my baby and I was still that fat. I was hopeful that people would put two and two together and realize that both the toddler and the infant belonged to her and that mine was still cooking.

As we left the restaurant, I was walking slightly ahead of K and H and there were a group of women standing together chatting. After we walked past them, K told me she overheard one of them say, "Oh my. Look at her with that small baby and already pregnant again".

WOW! A three week old baby and already 6.5 months pregnant!?! I must have some superhuman baby making skills.

We laughed all night about that comment and about just how irresponsible I am to get pregnant twice so close together :)

Wow, you must be super fertile to have babies that close together!

My mom always tells me about a similar story. When I was about 4 months old my mom's friend (who was almost 9 months pregnant) and her husband were watching me for a few hours. For some reason they were out and about with me and ended up in an elevator with some old woman who kept looking from me to the big pregnant belly with a weird look!

Crazy people!

When I was 13 (middle school?) I used to love carrying my baby sister around at my brother's basketball games until I found out that people at the school started thinking it was my secret baby! My mom STILL teases me about that! People are nuts!!

Haha - that's hilarious.

In Italy you have to buy pregnancy tests from the pharmacy (NOTHING is over the counter), and a friend needed one, but couldn't get out of the house with her two kids... so another friend who had an 18 month old and was probably about 7 months pregnant herself, went and asked for one and the pharmacists flat out said "No! You ARE pregnant"

Haha, finally my friend realized how it must have looked and told her it was for a friend! haha
