When You Think You Look Cute...

...there is always the 3-year-old boy to say, "Mom, you look dumb in that dress."

"Why do you say that?" I asked.

"Because of THESE weird things," he answered, pointing to a spot on my thigh.

"What? These black and white diamonds?"

"Yes. And you look dumb in the purple shirt, too."

"It's not purple. It's pink."

Nothing like a boost like that to the self-esteem when you're 12 weeks pregnant with your tenth...and you're as big as your cute little friend who is SEVEN MONTHS pregnant...

Thanks for listening.

Oh my gosh...He is so funny! Sorry Jen I am still laughing. I guess we could call him the fashion police now. LOL For what it is worth I thought the outfit looked cute.

I guess we'll have to teach the 3 year old about BEAUTY, pregnant women, & hormones......
Love you,
ME

If I could count the times my kids have commented on my bottom. Geez have some mercy on a poor girl. Glad I am not the only one getting criticized by toddlers. LOL

Don't you love honest 3 year olds? I really like the dress!

Jessica said...

Kids...gotta love 'em...right? right? You are a great teacher for your kids and hopefully they will never grow up and ask perfectly UNPREGNANT women when the baby is due. That drives me BONKERS. I am just a bit fluffy!

Lydia said...

I so know how you feel ok so I have only had six kids but I know I'm pregnant because my pants don't fit before I am even late.


I like the dress. Enjoy the pregnancy. And the cute things kids say.

Oh my gosh, Lydia, you are so funny! I guess my pants stop fitting at about 6 weeks now! Ridiculous!

He was only criticizing the fabric, not you, and who says a 3 year old boy, is a fashion authority, don't you agree? yes?

Okay, I just found you (because you or someone from your blog) visited my blog, and I am always curious as to who is visiting my blog. How do you do it? You are living in MX (my dream) you have a huge family (another dream of mine) and your life seems so calm. I have 1.5 kids and am going crazy trying to keep my house cleaned and healthy food on the table. How on earth do you do it? And by the way, I think that dress is darling, and little 4 year olds are sent to keep us humble, especially when we are getting a little proud. Not to say you are getting proud, but a little taste of humility is always on the menu for me. Keep it up!

I had six pregnancies in six and a half years time - 2 sons - 2 miscarriages - 2 sons. First time around I didn't move into maternity clothes till into my fifth month, much to my aunts dismay. By the sixth one ... I swear the moment of conception my uterous notified my stomich and it went "pop, ready". 8-/
Now every time my stomich is acting up - I can instantaniously look like I am at least three months along (from the last pregnancy - not the first 8-/). Geesh!!
The things we go through for our kids - popping bellies and insults :-p


{yes, I am caught up now o;-p}

I know this is an old post but I just found it and had to tell you about when I was nursery assistant and a 3 year old said to me 'I can tell you're old because your teeth are yellow.' I was 21! I still use whitening toothpaste now.
