While I enjoy marvelling at the horrible things thoughtless people say to pregnant women and mums, how about some happy stories to entertain us this Friday night. What did someone say to you/do for you that pleasantly surprised you?
Here's mine: When I told my work colleagues I was pregnant, one of them congratulated me but didn't say much else. A few days later I found a beautiful card from him and his wife on my desk, saying how much he enjoyed working with me and respected me and that he knew these qualities would make me a wonderful mother. It was such a thoughtful thing to do and quite a surprise coming from someone 20 years my senior. I shed a little tear at the time and it still makes me a but teary to think about it.
