WWF guy came door knocking for donations while I was hosing patio with DS. I answer door hot and flustered, wet, and wearing a singlet with no bra and jogging shorts. Unbeknownst to me at the time I had milky wet patches.
DS comes running inside to see who's at the door.
Me "please excus the wet naked kid, we are cleaning"
WWF guy "oh don't worry, we all like getting nude and wet sometimes! You can come clean my patio next and Ill babysit!"

When DS was 6 weeks old I was at the hospital waiting for the lift for his 6 week check. He was in a sling. An elderly man waiting next to me was eyeing him in a very concerned way. So I looked at the old man to see if he wanted to say something rather than just sticking his head very close to me. He said, "that baby alive in there? You'll suffocate him." I assured him it was very safe. Old Man: "bloody rubbish these new ways of carrying babies around! Mark my word, you'll find him dead in there one day!"
Wow. It was intense.
OMG I am so sick of this too
DS2 has alot of hair, it's long & think. He's 4 months old
Today at the shops I told at least 5 people "He's a boy!"
One lady last week actually argued her point with me by saying "What a waste having all that hair & being a boy"
I'm over it and considering making a sign for his pram "I'm a BOY" as wearing blues with trucks/car/planes isn't giving the general public any idea's
Lol sorry had to laugh.
I had DD at the check out when she was about 3 months old.
Pink cardigan etc
Basically she looked like a big ball of fairy floss.
And some guy said 'what a cute little boy how old is he'
I was so shocked at his stupidity I don't think I even replied.
Some of these are so funny.
I dont get it with ds so much.... but my dog cops it all the time!!! Yeah I guess on first glance she does look like a male dog, but there is no mistaking her once you know she's a girl, I dont know, I guess she looks like a stately graceful lady.
Anyway the amount of people that call her 'big fella' 'he's a big boy' yada yada. The one that irks me the most though is the farm manager next door. We always seem to run into each other on the shared drive and no matter how many times I drop in the 'Yes SHE is' line he just always refers to her in the masculine! Drives me bonkers!!! Though I wonder if he does it just to p me off!
hahaaaa. these posts are so hilarious. I'm 31, mum is 51 and dd is 3, ds is 18mths old, and one day we were at the dr's surgery together and the dr kept on talking to my mum and not looking at me at all, then he said ""so mum, what'll it be?"" (ds was going to get a procedure done and we were there to get more information) and mum looked at me blankly.,.. then he said ""hang on - you ARE the mother of all of these kids aren't you?""... and mum was like ""um no, im the grandmother of these two and the mother of this adult next to me"". the look on his face was priceless.
then everytime we run into someone who we know but hasn't seen our kids yet, recoil in shock and say "" are you sure they are your kids? they don't look anything like you"" to my hubby. you see, he's italian, with dark olive skin, black hair, dark brown eyes. i'm white as snow, blue eyes and dark brown hair, dd is mousy brown hair, white skin, sky blue eyes, and ds is white haired, blue eyed and white skinned. UM yeah of course they are our kids!! lol.
Haha a weird convo that I couldnt get away fast enough from at the shops the other day. Left me wondering if he was a peddo.
*walking into store yelling at DD1 to slow down and be careful, Old man comes up and smiles showing off what looks like a new set of dentures*
Old man: Awwww look at your little baby
Old man: Boy or girl?
Old man: Gorgeous. I just cherish babies and young children
me: *smiles awkwardly* ah yea....
Old man: Kids are great I love them
me: Ok well I have to go chase after my other kid.
Seriously....sooooo weird and VERY awkward. It left me thinking for ages how creepy he was.
Oh DD and I were shopping with a friend and her daughter a while ago. Friend is a few years older than me (5 or 6 maybe?) and her daughter is a year younger than my DD.
Lady at shop assumed I was mother of both children AND my friend was my mother! Awkward!
On the weekend I was buying some cheese and as I approached the cold unit thing a girl - possibly ten or eleven years old - raced over to it and picked up a wedge of the same time of cheese I was planning to get. She kissed it several times and declared it to be her favourite cheese in the world. I agreed with her in my head - awesome cheese - and picked up a wedge for myself.
That's when she said "except it is a WINTER cheese and no matter how much I love it I could never ever eat it in summer" and looked pointedly at me. Awkward in a very weird way!
