Hahah don't you hate that!
My 2 year old DS has long blonde ringlets, and on so many occasions I've had people come up and say 'Oh she's gorgeous! Look at that beautiful hair!', despite him wearing Ben 10 shirts, shorts and black or brown riding boots...
I'm thining 'Do you not see what he's wearing!?'
It used to happen with my DS1 & DS2 though, when they were newborns wearing blue onesies, blue hats and blue socks...
I don't understand what goes on in some peoples heads.
I (23) was out with my Dad (50), my two boys age 2 & 4, and my 8 year old half brother, and we were sitting at a table having lunch, the boys were happily chatting and behaving nicely, when a woman sitting next to us, trying to wrangle her 3 restless boys aged between 4-9 looked at Dad and I and said 'I don't know how you do it. Your 3 are behaving so well' and made a comment implying that Dad and I were a couple..
Dad and I looked at each other mortified, and couldn't do anything but laugh!
It gave Dad a bit of an ego boost though, having someone think he can pull someone so much younger than him lol.

3 days after DS was born I was making a cup of hot milo in the hospital kitchen room. I was desperately trying to perk myself up after a long day with the 'day 3 blues', my milk coming in and DS being stuck under the lights for 24 hours cause of his jaundice.
Some guy walks in out of the blue and goes to me 'Due any day now hey?'
I just looked at him speechless for a second before stammering out 'Actually my son was born 3 days ago...'
Ran back to my room and cried after that. Sure I still had a belly but it was probably 1/3 of the size it'd been 3 days earlier!
DS whilst walking home from preschool loudly announces "mum why are they so fat did they eat lots of Maccas?" about 2 older ladies we passed
I got really strange looks when shopping with BFF I had my DD 15 months and her DD1 almost 3in trolley and her DD 5 months in my Arms we thought yerp great look take q photo lol
Went out @ 28 weeks preg went to club nobody knew I was preg until I told them that's why I wasnt drinking lol
Wtf with the crazy trolley lady that's gold
when i was pregnant... I had a strange old lady come up to me in a shopping centre touch my belly and say "your going to have a boy". i had recently had my ultrasound so... "yeah i know!" stammered out of my mouth... =s lol
Female predators and abusers get rarely reported from victims. That is why the numbers in the statistics are low.
It's the same reason why male victims of domestic violence aren't reporting their female abusers.
Two nights ago was the first time I got to wear my best friends baby in public (she came out of hospital on Saturday) and she has to be connected to oxygen all the time...not exactly a picture of health lol
And some random old lady came up to us while we were waiting outside the shop, went "BABBBBBBY" and then proceeded to grab and kiss her leg multiple times :S
Considering the fact that everyone has to use alcohol gel before they touch the baby...
,while i felt for her and her dh, they weren't the most germ free looking people
not impressed :-(
My eldest is 3.5 years older than my youngest, however my eldest is very small and youngest is a giant boof.. they look quite alike except one has fair skin and blue eyes and one has tanned skin and hazel eyes (I know its hard to picture but they still do actually look alot alike.)
Anyway the size difference is minimal because of this, and people often ask if they are twins, lol, my eldest whos 5 and understands this a bit gets very offended! hehe
Also my mother is 49 but looks very young for her age, Im 24 but do too, people often see us all and assume Shes mum, Im the older teen daughter and my boys are her youngest/my younger brothers haha!
Sitting at the hairdressers today with DS on my lap while dh went to the loo.
Old lady next to me: oh it must be so hard, being a single mum and not having a daddy to watch him while you get your hair done.
Me: actually my husband has just gone to the toilet and is coming back to get him
Old lady: it's ok dear, I don't judge single mums.
Me: I am married (wave wedding ring)
Old lady: that's too big to be real! I don't know why you feel you need props darling, just be yourself, if people don't like it... Bla bla bla
Me: *smile and nod*
10 minutes later dh comes in to get DS, gives me a kiss and says bye.
Old lady: *looks mortified*
Me: *huge smile*
