Trying to decide which gum will taste better…spearmint or citrus mint…spearmint it is, yes that’s what I feel like today.
“Oh, that’s so cute” a voice from the soda machine says.
My head turns to the cashier, nothing “cute” there….then I turn to glance through the rest of the store….nothing “cute”. The eyes that belong to that voice are staring right at me. I look down…nappy old cable knit sweater jacket (missing a few buttons), stretched out undershirt sneaking out due to my bulging belly, and pj pants. Once again, nothing “cute” there. My eyes meet his again with the obvious look of question…”what on earth are you referring to sir?”
A nod is sent my direction and the eyes then focus on my belly.
I was completely flattered, a bit embarrassed, and shocked. No guy has referred to my pregnancy in such a positive way. I’m sure I blushed a bit, but said “Oh yah it’s really cute” in a very sarcastic voice.
“No, really it is so cute. I can’t take my eyes from you….there’s just something about an expecting mother….it’s just cute.”
I left with a little skip in my walk and giant smile across my face.
