Oh, we don't do that.

So I was in charge of a Special Needs Halloween carnival the other night.
I was wearing this shirt (excuse the coughing! SWINE!), and I will admit it DID look slightly maternity.



Well, half way through the night, this sweet old man who was NOT special comes up and asks me, "So, how far along are you?"

Because I am SO generous, I played right along.

Grabbing my tummy, "oh just about five months."

"Well, congratulations! Is this your first?"

"Thanks...it sure is."

"Oh well, you will NEVER regret it. I have 4 of my own and they are the best things that ever happened to me!"

And that was the point where I knew I should lose more weight and NEVER, ever wear that shirt again.

Oh no! That is the worst thing ever! But chels you don't need to lose any weight, you are lookin great! It's just old people, they don't quite understand the whole "babydoll" shirt thing.

Hahahaha!!! That is SOOO funny! It is totally the shirt though! Once I was wearing a shirt like that and my mom totally said I looked pregnant! Old people (don't tell her I called her old) just don't know.
