Them "so how old are your two?"
Me "DS is 2 in March, DD is 1 in March...."
Them *look of horror*
Me *points to belly* "this bub due in May"
Them *jaw dropped* "ohhhh... How old are you?"
Me "how old do I look"
Me "well hubby says I look 19, but I'm turning 23"...
Them "you're married?!?"
And we see the general pattern...
"Don't you two know how to do anything BUT have sex and make babies?" TV comment thrown in etc...
It hurts, cause yes I love my kids, but I didn't want them as close as they are but that's the way it happened...
I was embarrassed at a party when everyone else announced my pregnancy this time and I got lectured...

It bugs me when people say 'all jokes aside' when there has been no humour in anything they have said previous to that comment!!!!! Gahhh!

Oh yes I remember those "it will happen when it wants" and after I lost my DS at 18 weeks "it wasn't meant to be" Or "you can always try again"
Those hurt so deep so I decided to start snapping back.

"You must be so happy you've finally got a boy!"
Nah, I was blooooody stoked when I had my first daughter, I was bloooody stoked when I had my second daughter and I'll be blooooody stoked if I have a third healthy baby.
And no, DH isn't finally proud to be a dad because he's having a son, you stupid son of a jacka-s, he was proud the first time he became a dad. Part of me hopes you choke on a dry cornflake for a few seconds at breakfast each morning.
Sigh. WHY THE HECK DID WE TELL ANYONE THE GENDER!!!! *headbang*
Lol... okay, this was only slightly annoying...
I went to the bakery this morning by myself and treated myself to some goodies and we go there often so the lady quite innocently said, 'is the husband hungry this morning?' I felt my face go red as I said, 'dunno, he's at work, but me and this baby sure are starved, we just walked from the newsagent next door.'
Its annoying in the sense that... she thought I couldn't eat it all lol. So I sat out the front the DEMOLISHED it. It's petty, isn't it?

Any people who leap to conclusions. "Oh, single now mate, on the prowl!" Maybe I don't fit the stereotype *********! Or "The kids will probably wind up spending more time at their mum's when they get older." Excuse me, I'm the better parent so they might stay with ME! Just because I'm bl00dy male doesn't mean I want to ditch my kids and screw anything with a heartbeat!
And then the inevitable questions I get about a scar I have on my head. "Ooh, what happened?" I think I'll get a freakin t-shirt made so I don't have to answer that question anymore. I solace myself with answering it differently, particularly when I'm in a mood:
I was shot
Flesh eating bacteria
Attacked by a badger
Or my favourite:
I banged it on your wife's bedhead.
