I wrote a blog post about lots of things, one of which was why you shouldn't ever ask a mom if the baby she's holding is her first or her only child, same for a pregnant woman. This was a really honest post about something that constantly breaks my heart. I posted it on FB because I try to speak out on stuff like that and break the silence about it all. A FB friend of mine apparently read it and posted this today:
"I read a blog entry yesterday about why it's insensitive to see a woman with a baby and ask, "Is this your first child?" I would like to add that it is also insensitive to ask, "Is that your baby?" I mean, I know I'm old and she looks nothing like me, but she really is my kid! :-)"
Are you sh!!tting me???? You think this is the same issue? I really want to throat punch her. What I really want to do it comment and say "My blog post wasn't about that, it was about how it breaks my heart every time I lie and say that he is my only child because my first one died. How you can compare this to being offended that people think you're too old to have a baby boggles my mind. " Ugh I'm so p!ssed right now. She either COMPLETELY missed the point of my blog or she's just an idiot.
