Belly belly belly

1. you will be incessantly irritated and be able to speak your mind easier.
(things no one tells you about pregnancy)

The other night I was walking around our block around 8 p.m. after Ava was in bed when two junior high kids started yelling at me, "hi mom, hey, hi!" (obviously because i was prego). I ignored them at first as I left them turning at a corner, which is what I usually do, but on the way home I got really annoyed. Why should they have me feeling stupid and why are they yelling at a total stranger?

Twenty minutes later I was going to the same place in the road and saw them riding their bikes.
So, when they started yelling again at me (I know, where are there parents?), I turned around and said, "You know what? I am pregnant (pointing at my belly for emphasis), and I don't appreciate being harrassed by you guys. Do I point at you and yell? No! So please don't yell at the top of your lungs at me!"

After my outrage, they did the comic book blink, blink, and slunk away (i hope to their homes!) and never have I been yelled at again in my neighborhood.

Brandon was like, "I am really proud of you!" because usually I would just ignore it. He. He. don't mess with a prego after a long day!

Then, the other day, I was walking into WalMart and a young kid looks at me and screams, "Hey, do you like my bedspread?" I ignored him and two girls said, "Oh, shot down."

So, I am just wondering, what is it about the belly that gets kids yelling at you? Any ideas?

This cracked me up! And I'm proud of you too! I've been really annoyed about things like that lately...even before I was pregnant though. I'm just sick of people thinking they can be rude whenever they want. Like guys staring you down or kids yelling at you, etc. Enough is enough! So now maybe I'll have the same gumption you do and start talking back!
