I've heard a lot of um....interesting (to put it nicely) responses from people upon finding out I'm pregnant--so I thought I'd share them with you all just so you know what not to say next time you hear the good news from someone =) HA! (p.s. I have had many kind and totally appropriate responses too, but the awful ones are more interesting to blog about! ha!)
5. You must really like kids...huh?
4. Um...wow... 3...
3. Well, you must want a boy then! There's no way you would want three girls!!
(with the emphasis on girls sounding the same as--well, you wouldn't want EBOLA would you!?!?)
2. This is your third? Well! It's definitely your last then, right!!?
1. Was that planned?!
Followed up immediately by:
Well, stay away from me because I do NOT want to catch THAT from YOU!
(I hate to break it to you honey, but um, that's not quite how the whole pregnancy thing works...which you ought to know...since you have kids and all...sheesh!)
These people need to learn that the only truly acceptable responses are along the lines of:
Congratulations! How exciting! I'm so happy for you!
Etc and so on...=)
