Your responses cracked me up...I feel your pain honey. When you're in the final stretch of your pregnancy ALL of these make you want to cause bodily harm and the only two things stopping you are jail and the fact you can't maneuver around your belly. I've had variations of ALL of these said to me except #1 and #9. WTF is right? Who are these folks hanging around? You can tell a lot about where a person's mindset is/was by the words falling out of their mouth. Honestly, I thought #1 was making some unwise assumption about your age and inferred your once ripe and fertile eggs were now raisins leaving you to seek alternative methods. And #9 is sad because these days since the occurences are higher, it's assumed to be the norm. But, to me it sounded like the Holy Gossipers sent someone to dig up some presumed dirt about you. Not finding any, she lost interest. Nothing kills a good gossip fest like the truth. lol I wish at the time you could've smiled sweetly and said, "Were you?" Maybe next time. lol
 
I wish you the best!

Agreed. I was once asked by a new mom how did I "get it together" so fast after Kid #2. I stifled the inner me cracking up laughing long enough to respond, "Girl, I faked it." She was the first person to tell me I had it together because honestly I felt like a deranged, sleep-deprived, raging hot mess! I found that people are very, very willing (sometimes TOO willing) to help. Speaking from experience, just make sure it's productive help and not counterproductive. If I have to "re-do" your help...exit stage left, quickly. lol

Now, that I've got my Mommy-head screwed back on kinda-sorta right I have no shame in taking help when and where it's needed. Nannies, housekeepers, sitters, relatives...yes, yes, and yes! Bring 'em on. Later with the SuperMom bit. lol

Congrats on your little bundle!

Ok, how could you NOT be giddy when you have that cute umbrella to keep the rain off you. I love the rain. And you do hear a lot of people grumbling about it...as if the rain showed up to specifically mess up their day. lol I agree with you. We can't control rain or Monday's, but we can control our focus.

Man, oh man did I need that nap a few hours ago...I was struggling through a fire safety presentation for the building I work in. FYI: Is it strange that the Assistant Fire Marshall was nodding, too? Hmm... Anyhoo. I'm going to help myself all around your blog...don't mind me.

Feel free to nose around my blog, too. It's okay, we'll be nosy together.
