you're expecting...right???

WHEN will people learn...I don't know about any of you, but I have NEVER asked that question...it's a no brainer isn't it????..Why would you ever ask another women that! If you are not absolutely POSITIVE that she is POSITIVE. I will never ever understand why people ask that question...

Here I was, getting really tired of the "so have we heard anything about a baby yet" question! Honestly after today that question is music to my ears, compared to the dreaded you're expecting question...

I really couldn't believe it....there I am with my scissors in hand, ready to take my first snip...(around the EARS I might add) and then I heard it, almost like it was in slow motion I heard her say...in this super annoying perky voice "so...ummm....you're expecting...RIGHT?!!?"
For one second I was caught off guard..but then I immediately said "HA...
NO...nope not expecting...
So you can just imagine how the rest went...blonde inappropriate lady feels really really bad, blames it on small town gossip....really tired, annoyed hairstylist exclaim's "well you can tell whoever told you that little rumor that I won't ever be expecting, so he/she can put an end to that little rumor"...
I know what some of you are thinking, that I was very rude here with that reply.... I honestly did soften very quickly after that comment. I quickly explained our situation, how we are in the waiting period of the adoption process. Of course she felt awkward etc....blah blah it was all good by the time she left..she even, by some miracle ended up with a great new stylish do...:)

Really though I ask you all, why... why would you ever say that to ANYONE...I don't just think that because of what we are going through, just in general....you must never ask a women who may or may not be expecting....if they are...let them tell you. Guess what if they haven't told you themselves well then at this point in time, it is NONE or your business...so save yourself the embarrassment..DON'T ASK!!!!

haha thanks for letting me rant....:)
oh by the way Dad if you are reading this....I'm sorry but I have disrupted your Christmas Day...you're coming to our house for dinner and a sleepover...contain your excitement Dad. I can see your face now...I promise I will have all the "mix en's" for your Martini!!!!

Flick Mich, quite the question to ask!! A big no, no I might add! For those nosey rosey people that have to be in the know, I say pay attention to your own life instead of everyone else's.
There's my rant for the day. Maybe I need to blog too??
See you this aft! JS
