    OMG!!

    You look up rude in the dictionary and that's the quote that will be sitting there.

    You poor thing, I hope it doesn't happen often.

    I get this all the time because DS1 is dark hair and eyes and DS2 has bright blue eyes and blondey hair. Apart from that they are identical but it still really upsets me that people think they are to different fathers DP says to just let them think what they want but I don't want them to think that, so I usually snap back haha.

    I have two that are dark and three that are fair so I think that is why I get asked all the time or they ask if I do Family Day Care

    But one distinct thing I remember when I was younger I had a part time job at a night club and I was 17...... I had been upset about not being as thin as the other girls but always made sure I looked really nice with hair and make up etc..... And this really old sleazy weirdo guy came in really early one night and said are you pregnant...? Why are you working here if you are? So irresponsible.

    I was wearing size 11 jeans and I was NOT fat... But that night I just wanted to bawl my eyes out... Now that I look back I was thin just had hips LOL...... I will never ever forget that because in a way I let him make me feel like that when really I wasn't big at all..?

    Still upsets me though.

    One other thing would be from my gradma when I was telling her ive been going to gym to lose some belly fat as that seems to be where I store it... And she said umm I think u need to be more worried about your big bum.

    Ummmmmmm...... I have a flat bum. I don't even HAVE a bum??!! I was upset because I was like, um it's not big is it and started to question myself.

    I don't know why but my grand parents seem to think it's okay to comment on my weight issues... As if I dont already know??!?! & as if once they enlighten me it's just going to magically disappear


    Beep beep sending from my iPhone
    isn't it horrible?

    I grew up with my mum telling me i was over weight and telling me i had to lose weight (i was a size 14 until i had my DD in 06), when i was a teen she even told me if i could get down to a size 10-12 (which is what my older sister was) then she would buy me a whole new wardrobe, another time she told me she wouldnt buy me any new clothes because 'nothing looked good'... my SIL is exactly the same weight/shape/height as what i was at her age and her family all encourage her to be healthy (eg not yo-yo dieting, just being active and eating healthy) as they do for everyone in their family- and the difference in what they do/say to her and how high her confidence is to what my family say/did to me and how low mine is is incredible.

    I will admit, because of my mum's 'help' as a teen (she said she was jsut trying to make sure i didn't turn out like her) i am paranoid about my weight, what i eat and who sees me in anything less then full clothing (i am now considered over weight but thats because of having DD and a medical condition which makes losing the weight almost impossible)...

    Mine was while breastfeeding as well... some guy walking past muttered "Oh, for God's sake put it away"

    Rude! People really should mind their own business!

    I remembered another one. I was at the doc's for DS's 6week check and DS needed a feed and doc was running late so I moved to a corner of the waiting room to feed him. Well a young guy and his GF looked over at me and the guy said to her 'if they had a suggestion box here I would suggest that they find somewhere else to do that' and nodded in my dircetion and it was obivous he was talking about me because i was the only one sitting there and then his GF said 'I know, its disgusting!'
    I felt so small, DD was on the bottle by 6weeks so I was so proud of myself for getting to 6weeks with (he is now 5mths and stil breastfeeding like a champ!) DS and for feeding in public when DS needed a fed and then that happens! DH wasnt happy at all when I told him.

    This is something that happened the other day that **** me..nothing said just actions..
    Was in local cafe to get coffee ..first in line waiting patiently to order my coffee ...a woman who was dinning in got up leaned over to the coffee girl to order and pay for another coffee...
    I was so annoyed..how rude and stupid!!! I was in a bad mood already..normally would have said something..but my girl was with me so didn't want to make a scene ....
