So I hear a knock on the door at 3:00 P.M. It was some guy with a memo board in his hand. He looks at me and asks in a business-like way,
"Hi, is your Mom or Dad home?"
I looked at him from my 9 month pregnant body and just stared. I really was caught quite speechless...especially in my CONDITION....
Finally I mustered, "I AM the Mom."
He looks again at me...rather sheepishly I might add... and says very quickly, "I'm sorry, you just look so young."
It was weird, but as he was asking me about our gas bill and what we pay, I actually FELT like a little kid. But more than that I felt like, "OK...did he just TOTALLY miss by extremely large belly...or did he think...well...?"
On the other hand - to be 30 and 9 months pregnant with #3 - in a way I had to take that and SORT of take it as a compliment. I just never expected that comment...being so VERY PREGNANT!
