My mom ran into one of my friends' mom in my small hometown, yesterday. Apparently, during their brief conversation, this woman flat-out asked her if I was nursing my LO. Huh?!
Good ol' mom (who is very prim and proper and was surely uncomfortable being asked this question) was very vague and didn't give her the information she was after... but it leads me to ask, under what circumstances is that an okay question to ask someone (or about someone)?
I suppose I find it to be a very personal question because I'm still so disappointed that breastfeeding didn't work out for us, and I was terribly torn when making the decision to formula feed. I feel like that kind of probing question just raises those feelings of sadness and failure again.
Not to mention, this woman's daughter (who I've known since Grade 4 and have been very close to since Grade 11 .. I'm 30 now) still has yet to visit and meet DD. She lives a whopping 2-hr drive away. It's too bad my mom didn't think to ask when this friend plans on visiting us! Y'know, in the spirit of asking awkward questions and all, hah.
