Things that make you go hmmmmm.....

Last night, after we put the kids to bed @ 8pm, I went to Walmart to finish up our grocery shopping for the week. It's not my favorite place to go, but I was alone so it was delightful!

In the first aisle a man came around the corner and said exuberantly "Hi!" to which I smiled and said "Hi" back. And on our way we each went. He came up again in the next aisle and tried to strike up a conversation with me by asking if this is my first pregnancy. I told him this is my third. To which he replied, "You have a wonderful glow about you! Pregnant women are so glowing and sexy."

I smiled and walked away thinking about a few things.

1. Should I be flattered or creeped out?
2. Has he ever lived with a pregnant woman? Surely not!

I might understand if he knew me and the fact that I spent the first 28 weeks throwing up multiple times a day. I probably do look glowing compared to then, or maybe it's just the fact that's I'm eating some now.

I guess every man has a type of women they find attractive. Blonde, tall, skinny, fat, brunette, and the list goes on & on. I never considered 'pregnant' to be one.

Too funny! And slightly creepy.

If he had left off the "sexy" part it may have been a compliment.

I can't say as I ever felt "sexy" while pregnant. More like "beached whale."

It takes all kinds to make the world go 'round!
