Well, THAT'S never happened before...

SJ and I checked out a couple of tag sales this weekend to make sure there isn't any baby stuff we're missing (conclusion: there isn't). At one of the tag sales, the 10-year-old son of the woman hosting the sale starting following us around all used car salesman-like. "Is there anything in particular you're looking for? I can help you find it." "Did you see this toy? It's in great shape."

It was cute... for the first few minutes. And then I felt like saying, "Listen, can you let me browse through your family's crap in peace?" But, somehow, despite my looking exclusively at the baby stuff and-- you know-- the huge belly protruding in front of me, he missed the fact that I was pregnant until his mom asked when I am due.

I answered and that's when Car Salesman Jr. said, "You're having a baby?" and then I mean, I understand the fascination little old ladies have with pregnant bellies, but getting groped by a 10-year-old is a first for me.

And just to show what an evil mind I have, my first thought as this happened was the desire to point at SJ and proclaim, "She's pregnant too!" while running for the safety of the car.

i LOVE that when I'm out with you, no one initially realizes that I'm pregnant.

kind of. because really, I'm pretty huge these days. there's no mistaking this belly - so they all must think I'm just fat. I'm not sure which is worse.

also, that kid nailed me in the head with the umbrella he was trying to sell me... I think he was trying to get me to move my arms from in front of my stomach so he could grope me too.

we'll be buying a car from that kid in 15 years. make no mistake.

I've never groped a strangers tummy. Ever. Not really sure I've even manhandled a relative/friend. I just don't think it's appropriate.
Not cool, little man, not cool.
