Lesson Learned

File this under "Things I will Never Ask Sam Again."

Why I chose tonight, after eating dinner and feeling pretty full, to try on outfits for the cruise, I'll never know. But I did. Ugh! Anyway, I was looking in the mirror, checking out all the bulges and trying to decide if I could suck in my stomach long enough to wear this particular dress to formal night on the ship, when along comes Sam. Feeling satisfied with the dress, I asked him, "Do I look pretty in this dress, Sam, or does Mommy look fat?" I'm sure you know what he said.

With the sweetest smile and loving eyes came "You look fat, Mommy."


"Sammy, don't you like Mommy's pretty dress?"

"You look fat, Mommy."

"Sammy, please say 'Mommy, you look so pretty.'"

"You look fat, Mommy."

"Sammy, it's really not nice to say that. You're making Mommy sad. Please say 'Mommy you look so pretty' before I cry."

"You look fat, Mommy."

O.K. I get it. I'll take the stupid dress off! (cue stomping sounds)

I'll say it, you look so pretty!

I'm wondering how many people are going to ask when my baby is due, but I've decided to just embrace my bulges (at least for the weekend :0)) and wear the empire waist dress. I look about five months...

Kids are harsh aren't they? My guy pointed out a zit in public by yelling "what't that thing on your face?!?" I guess they keep us humble :(

And by the way, you're BEAUTIFUL :)
