My last post I told about the couple that compared my little family to a pack of wild animals- well I now have something even better.
Let me start out saying this- I am by definition a pipsqueak. There are a few kids in our primary that tower of me, and several of my nephews use me as an armrest. So I know that I'm not that big- and thats ok. Sure womanly curves would be very welcome, as would a little-(4 or 5 inches would do) added heighth, but I picked some weird combination's from the gene pool, and "you get what you get, and dont throw a fit" right? In all honesty I'm just thankful to have a  healthy body that allows me to take care of my kiddies and enjoy the many wonderful things our Heavenly Father created for us -(cue for the primary song "My Heavenly Father Loves Me" to start playing in your head.)
OK- so I am used to comments about how small I am. What I am not used to are comments about how big I am. Except when I am pregnant. and that is just because-(i've decided anyway) people can be quite obnoxious when one is expecting. And NO, this is not an announcement- although I would assume everyone(the few friends/family who read my blog anyway) knows we are trying for our caboose-(if anyone knows the secret or trick on how to have a girl- we really would appreciate any and all hints/methods!!! ;)), so hopefully that announcement will be following sometime in the new year, but this is not it. So back to my story.
This past weekend we drove up to Mesa for Daniels dear sweet cousins wedding-(which was, of course, wonderful) but had to stop at "the supersized" store for a few supplies before heading home. So we check out and get to the door where there is the guy who makes sure you're not trying to break the 8th commandment, when he looks at me and says-and I quote, "you're not hiding twins under there, are you?" ............................................................(I'm pausing here for full absorption

I'm quite flabbergasted by that comment. I mean if I was supporting a little preggo belly, then yeah- i would get his "joke." But for me, the pipsqueek that I am, I am just kinda baffled. Who says something like that? I think I should start a national PSA with the little clip from Bambi cuz obviously not enough people have heard that infamous quote.
So I tell this little story to some friends at my dear, wonderful friends awesomest of awesome Christmas party, and one sweet friend tries to soften the blow by saying maybe he was having a premonition or something. Yeah- maybe if the One who sends these sweet little spirits into the world wants me to end up in the looney bin, or on some powerful anti-crazy drugs cuz Daniel and I keep telling each other were are crazy enough as it is with the "herd" of kids we already have been so blessed with.
2 more -at once no less- would definately do me in!!!!
But then I tell my dear sweet wonderful mother about that guy, and she says the same thing.
Right. Some little old man who doesnt know me from Adam, is gonna be prophesying to me that I'm gonna be carrying twins? Still doesnt make me feel better.
I think I will just chalk this one up to having a  supersized "fat" day. And I shall be burning the shirt I was wearing.

Kimmy-You crack me up! I'm still laughing at your story from the party! I know we were all saying the Man must need glasses! I still stand by that!
I'm excited for you to have another one in the near future! I wished I had some tips for you! From a mother of Four boys-I say have Faith! I felt such a strong impression of our last one. I knew she was my little girl that I kept having dreams about! Perhaps, your Mother knows something we don't!
I will have to talk to you more about this subject!
Good Luck!

I've really been thinking about this and have decided that he must have been talking about your rack. Many men will refer to the breasts as "the twins". But then, if that were the case and he was asking if you were hiding them... Huh. Well, that's not much better, is it? So much for trying to help you feel better. :(

Deb said...

Well we will all be blown away is you do end up having twins. Having twins is a scary thought. But why do people say these things? What's going on in their heads?

Julie said...

I'm dying!!!! That story is so funny. Here's what I think. . . he's partially blind. Yep, that's why he's the "greeter."

I wish I knew the girl secret and we would get your boy secret. . . an exchange of information would be mighty fine. And if that doesn't work we could always exchange the babies! Okay, kidding!!!!

You could not have a fat day if you tried.

I don't think creepy men are allowed to prophesy...but your mom, now she might be able to. I will be interested in seeing what happens in your future....

What in the heck could he possibly have been talking about, cuz NO WAY are you fat? Sounds like HE'S the one who needs the powerful anti-crazy drugs!

When I was pregnant with Ben, very early on, Brian told me he just prayed we'd have twins. I said, "Take it back! You pray and take it back right now!" Cuz I believe in the power of prayer and that scared me to death! LOL!
