So today my Mom tells me what happened when she and my Dad went out to eat at a restaurant they've been regulars at for a while.....
While eating a one of their favorite eateries, my Mom told me a waitress there recently had a baby girl. Yesterday (02/20/13) they went to grab a bite to eat and the waitress she was speaking of just happened to be the one tending to their table. While they were chatting with the waitress and congratulating her for the birth of her baby girl, they began discussing the birth of their grandson (David). The waitress told my parents to hold on a moment as she went to retrieve photos of her baby girl. Upon her return to the table my Mom had out photos of David ready to show the waitress, the waitress began commenting on all of David's hair and how gorgeous he was. My Mom thanked the lady and they chatted about how David has had the same amount of hair since birth and how his hair has grown and hasn't fallen out. The lady was so impressed and began telling my Mom how amazing that was and how cute she thought David was, also telling my Mom how proud she and Dad must be. The waitress completely FORGOT to show the photos of her daughter and began to walk away and my Mom stopped her and asked her if she was going to show the photos of her daughter or not. The waitress exclaimed "Oh my goodness! I forgot!" My Mom was laughing as she told me this story, she thought it was so funny that the lady was so engrossed in the photo(s) of David that she completely forgot about the photos of her own child!!!! LOL
Of course my Mom & Dad are proud as can be of their grandbaby; but this totally cracked me up. I guess our little boy has some strange effect on that woman. I've never heard of a mother forgetting to show photos of her OWN child because she was so into another person's little one. That's just crazy! lol
Thanks! We were laughing over the entire situation, it is just crazy. My husband had to go to the doctor for a knee injury this past Thursday and we told the doctor the story as well, he laughed. Like us, he had never heard of a woman forgetting to show off her own child for the sake of a stranger's child. That woman must be a little looney if you ask me.
