Lady: Ooooooh look at that baby. She looks sort of like the Gerber baby!
Me: Oh thank you. *smiling*
L: My 2 girls looked EXACTLY like the Gerber baby.
M: Oh? Wow.
L: Yes, blue eyes, light hair. Now they are grown up. Are her eyes blue?
M: Yep. Definitely blue.
L: Sometimes they don't stay that way, they might still change.
M: Oh we are pretty sure they will be blue.
(she moves a little closer the shopping cart)
L: Oh, I have laryngitis. I went to the doctor today. I wont touch your baby don't worry.
M: Ok. Not swine flu, right?? (said in a joking manner!)
L: No, just laryngitis. Well my daughters had the most beautiful blonde hair. Now the older one dyes it black with a light streak by her face and the other dyes it red!
(Hopelessly wanting this conversation to be over so I can finish my shopping!)
L: *reaches for her cell phone*
L: Here let me find some pictures. Now how do I do this?? *after a few seconds she finally figures it out and shows me - like I care!*
M: Oh they are pretty. (what was I supposed to say!)
L: Yes they are SO pretty and SO smart.
M: Oh that's really great.
L: So, you're expecting another? Or you just haven't lost the weight??
(wondering first of all, HOW she thinks she KNOWS what I looked like prepregnancy and secondly I have a bit of a belly, but seriously, PREGNANT??)
M: Oh, I haven't lost all the weight...
L: Oh yes, loosing the weight is so hard. Well I can't wait to have more of my own one day!
(I give her a confused look)
L: Ok, I better go. Bye.
M: Bye. (Quite honestly wanting to cover Darby's eyes and give her the finger)
I guess if I look pregnant still, at least it's because I have THIS to show for it:
