Out of the mouth...

I am enrolled in school summer session and one of my classes is on site at an elementary school so we can tutor individual students one on one. During our class I went to go use the restroom and not wanting to walk allll the way to the faculty lounge I went to the student bathroom.

As I was leaving, about six third or fourth grade students walked into the bathroom and spotted me washing my hands. They were all staring. Apparently they have never seen a pregnant woman before...anyway...one started a conversation:

Girl: Woah are you pregnant?!?

Me: Yep, I'm having a little girl in three weeks

Girl (shocked): WHAT GRADE ARE YOU IN?!?!!!

Me:....

Me:....

Me:...College

Also...When people, random or familiar as they may be, come up to talk to me they seem to only have stories of babies dying. Why. Why would you walk up to a pregnant woman and tell her about a friend of theirs who recently had a baby and a few days later it passed away...or was stillborn?

Three more weeks of all this...craziness

Well let me tell you a story:

I had a baby, then another, and another, and another, THEN I went and had ONE MORE! Would you believe they all came out to be BOYS? Not one girl and all of them HEALTHY as can be. Sorry I couldn't come up with something more tragic!! ;-)
