Yeouch...

I walked into the nursing bra section of Target today where a 60-ish woman was shopping. When she saw me, she said, "Oh good, you'll know about this. My daughter is 4 months pregnant with her second. What kind of bra would be good?" A long conversation followed about maternity vs. nursing bras, underwire vs. not, and the need of a lined bra cup when you're pregnant (which no "maternity" bras seem to have).

She then noticed the kids in my cart and asked their ages. "2 1/2 years and 7 weeks," I replied.

"Seven weeks!" she exclaimed. "And you're pregnant again already?"

I informed her as politely as I could that I have yet to regain my washboard abs since Elizabeth was born, (but geez, thanks for pointing that out).

Just plain mean.

You should pity her for not having the mathematical skills to devise the statistical improbability of you being pregnant again. Abs come and go. Stupid is forever. :)

Oh. How could you be so polite? I might have started crying.
