Are You Gonna Eat That?

“Mom, are you pregnant? I’ve noticed how much you’ve been eating lately.”

This is what I said…

“No…I am not, young lady! And listen to me, it’s never polite to ask someone if they’re pregnant…even your own mother!”

But this is what I thought…

“Hell no! WTF kinda question is that? Have you lost your mind, child? Didn’t you see me drinking a giant glass of wine while I indulged in seconds during dinner last night? So what if I’ve been a little hungry?  Now leave me alone, you nosey kid, so I can eat my second cream cheese laden bagel in peace. Be gone!”

    This is why I eat AFTER they go to bed. 🙂


  2. Hang on a second here…
    snacking and ‘operating’ my keyboard at the same time isn’t working out as well as I’d hoped…


  3. How about “Are you feeling grounded? ‘Cause I won’t be seeing you outside your room until you’re SIXTY!” Yeah, I’d be a lousy parent, I admit it. That’s why I stick to animals – they can’t sass you back (at least in English). 😀


  4. I’m starting to wonder if I’M pregnant……..


  5. Can’t tell you how many times I’ve offered my seat on the subway to a woman who seems to be pregnant. Then I realize uh, no definitely not pregnant.

    That is not a good question to ask. I’ve never asked that question myself but I remember overhearing a woman ask another woman when her baby was due. It did not go down well. I liked your What I Thought response Nancy. Fairly reasonable reaction I thought

    If my kids knew about that connection, I’d hear that question a lot. And they always catch me sneaking food.


    • My boys are clueless. It’s my precocious daughter that comes out with zingers like that one. I’m thankful to have this blog to document these snippets of our conversations. I think it will come in handy in the future. 🙂

        I always write down what my kids say. I think they’ll like to read it one day, if nothing else for a good laugh! I would love to have a bit of my childhood like that and I think my kids would love to read it and know I was once a kid too–shocker!
