Sunday Randomness

posted on: Sunday, April 3, 2011


Hello! I can tell you now that there will be no structure to this post whatsoever.  Just a few random thoughts while the babes are napping!

*I'm sure it has something to do with lack of sleep and baby number three... but my brain is SHOT!  I can't seem to remember anything.  My brain is feeling very elderly the past week.

*It has been almost a whole month since I've had a Dr. Pepper.  I gave it up two weeks before Cade was born.  I haven't said anything because I typically cave in and have one after a week or so.  I'd say I'm in the clear this time and it feels great!

*Just a little lesson that everyone should learn.... never EVER EVER under any circumstances ask a woman when she is expecting or if she is pregnant. 
Yesterday I walked into a store and the sales woman immediately walked up to me.  Here's how the conversation went down.

Sales Woman: I love that shirt! Such a pretty coral color!
Me: Thankyou!  I love it too!
Sales Woman: It's maternity right? You are just the cutest pregnant girl ever!  You're pregnant right?!
(Side note: No, it was not a maternity shirt.)
Me: Oh uhhh... uhhhh... uhhhhhhhhhh... yep, maternity and yep pregnant.

And then I dashed out of the store :)
Now looking back I should have just told her that no, I just had a baby a week and a half ago.  And then perhaps she would have learned a valuable lesson in manners.  But of course I just chickened out and was embarassed and lied that I was pregnant. Ha! 
So, just in case you have never heard of this rule...then consider this your warning that you should never ask a woman when she is expecting or if she is pregnant!

*Travis and I have been watching Swamp People on the History Channel (you can watch the show online).  Ever seen it?  We love it :)  It's a reality tv show following alligator hunters down in Louisiana. It's definitely not a show I would have ever thought I would enjoy.  But their way of life is really quite fascinating!

* This is one of those times where my brain has shut down.  I had a list in my head of random things I was going to write about.  And now that I've started typing I can't thing of a darn one. :)

Hope you're enjoying your weekend with the ones you love!
Have a great Monday tomorrow!

  3. All I have to say is your AWESOME! I can't even imagine managing 3! And you make it look so easy (at least online and from afar :) My brain is still shot and I don't have any excuses!

    I learned my lesson a long time ago about asking if someone was pregnant. I was tricked-I went to a pampered chef party and the lady asked us to guess how many kids she had. I asked if she meant counting the one she was carrying, she said not to feel bad after 7 kids her belly was stuck like that, but I will NEVER ask again!

  4. The same thing happened to me about two weeks after one of my children was born. Good rule of thumb - NEVER ask a woman if she is pregnant!

  5. This just made me laugh!! Girl, you should have told her! I haven't had a baby in almost 4 years, and I had a girl about 8-yrs-old come up to me in the grocery store and put her hands on my stomach and ask me about the baby. A, don't touch my stomach even if I am pregnant, and B, I AM NOT PREGNANT!! I have been sure to teach Ashley that she does not ever ask if someone is pregnant, so she always whispers in my ear if someone is.
    Wish I could meet that baby boy of yours!! The picture is adorable!
