Oh I have some whoppersWhen my DD was 2 months old, my mom offered to watch her for an afternoon. I accepted and left very specific directions which she promptly threw out the window. I come back and we start bickering over something she did or didn't do, she responds "well she is my daughter, I'll do what I want." WHAT!? She quickly corrected herself, said "granddaughter" then denied ever having said "daughter" to begin with.When I old my now former boss that I was pregnant with DS he reached into his desk drawer and took out his checkbook and a pen, leans forward and says stone faced "alright, how much is this going to cost me for you to...take care of it" my jaw dropped open and with nervous laughter I said "um, excuse me?" He responds "I guess you're adiment on keeping it then. Alright well congratulations I guess."A couple responses when I announced this pregnancy:"On purpose?"-coworker"This was planned?" -coworker"Uh, is that a good thing? I'm not sure if I should be congratulating you or not." -boss
This weekend we were out at the family cottage with DH's parents, siblings, aunt, uncle, cousin and girlfriend. DH had told his brother our boy name (which was fine by me) but then BIL goes and tells everyone around the dining room table what our boy name is! I was in such shock I couldn't even respond. It wasn't his news to share! I'm still really mad, even though his brother is generally a pretty good guy.After that, everyone started giving us ideas for girls names. I just sat there in silence while they went on for 20-30 minutes! They somehow didn't clue in that one of the two people that actually have a say on the baby name wasn't involved in the conversation.
I just love the people that "act" excited. I was at a repass for a deceased family member. My youngest nephew (12), asked me why didn't I tell him that I was having a baby. It caught me off guard because he could have only heard it from my youngest sister. We found out he was eavesdropping on a phone conversation between me and her. But when he asked, my other sister and older brother overheard him. They both turn to me and my brother asked "is your old ass really pregnant?" My sister acts all excited and then after I leave she goes to my baby sister and says " is she serious...why".
I have been diagnosed with hypermesis so am pretty much stuck in bed most days. Was crying I was so worn out and my hubby kindly pointend out that I'm not the first person to be pregnant and everyone else copes fine!
We still haven't announced or told his family. Someone at the homeschool co-op ice cream social told me I "look like you're carrying a secret" uhhhhhh what?
One of the flight attendants on our plane yesterday pointed to my belly and said whatcha got in there?
