I’m at work and have a lot of paperwork to catch up on but I MUST write about this…for the good of the shop and its customers. I need to get this out of my system NOW. I was just helping out a woman my age and she had her three year old in tow. We ended up discussing children and she told me she’s also got a one year old boy and is thinking about having a third (I was secretly jealous). I told her about Munchkin and then the unthinkable happened. She said (with a beaming smile may I add), “And you’re expecting a second one I see!”. My face fell, I felt all the blood in my body rush towards my face and I lost all feeling in my legs. This woman thought I was pregnant! PREGNANT!!! I’m still reeling from the shock of being thought pregnant. I repeat, pregnant! I blurted out something like “Well, not exactly…” and she went on and on about how great it is to have two kids and that she left work to be with them and listed all the things I will apparently be doing/giving up in the coming months because I’m pregnant.
I want to cry but can’t. I cannot have people think it’s my pregnancy hormones making me tear up.
