Last night I was at a friends party and a neighborhood mom (who has NO social skills and is quite brash) wanted to see my belly, since she hadn't since my pregnancy announcement. I was feeling quite cute with my little belly showing so I stood up so she could see. She said, "oh, you just look overweight." A couple friends were standing around and their jaws hit the floor. What an idiot. That is probably the #1 thing NOT to say to a pregnant woman. Not even sure she realized what she said was so stupid. Letting it roll off my back because I know her personality and that she really doesn't know any better. Ugh.
I am glad you can let that roll off your back. I might have slapped her if not that, I probably would have yelled at her. I had some of my 12 year old students say that to me when I was pregnant with DD, but it is different when they are just kids saying that to you. let alone an adult! Sorry she said that, I am sure your baby bump is adorable.
Or maybe run out of the room fake crying! How rude. I know people like that, but luckily I don't see them but every few years. Or you could say, we'll I'll tell this baby to hurry up and look like a baby bump, darn babies growing to slow for you.
Sorry that happened and glad you let it roll right off.
One of my fourth graders said I looked like I was going to have another baby this week (they don't know yet) and the two boys next to him made him feel terrible for saying it!! I know that's a little different but if 9 yr old boys know better than a grown women definitely should!!!
You guys are so sweet. I got so many "cute" compliments and belly rubs that night, so that way overcompensated. She really has no clue (you should hear some of the other stupid/inappropriate things that come out of her mouth.
That was really rude. Some people really dont have sense in talking. They should learn from children. I really think that lady have low iq in such matters. She should be on behavioral training.
Good that you enjoyed later part. Just edit this bad memory.
