Today I went to the store to do some shopping and found some snowman placemats for our table for the winter. It is Colin's job to set the table every night so I try to find fun placemats for him to use. I picked out 3 because there are 3 of us. I am checking out and the cashier asked only buying 3? and it was like a punch in the gut because right when she said that it was the reminder. The reminder I should be buying 4. I hate when I end up in situations like that. I know to the cashier and to the rest of the world that is a very innocent question....but for some of us that is a "loaded" questions that brings about many emotions.
I hate when that happens too. I know people mean no harm in asking those questions but they are unexpected triggers that hurt our hearts, especially this time of year when there are so many "should be" moments.
Ohh I hate that stuff. I hate when people look at me with the boys and say things like "gonna try for a girl?" Stab in the heart! Hugs!!!
Urgh, I loathe those moments. Those comments seem innocent enough, but they are intrusive and hurtful. I wish people could say "cute snowmen" or "these look fun." Just ring me up! Hugs as I know it's so hard. I've heard similar. Mine are the same size right now and I've been getting a lot of twin comments this past year from strangers and if I was going to try for more. Good grief...
