I walked into the office of a colleague and she greeted me and then glanced at my belly. "Wow!" she exclaimed, "You are really showing now!" To which I replied, "Yeah, I haven't actually gained all that much weight but it all seems to be settling right in my belly." And then she asked, "How much weight have you gained anyway?"
My students had been telling me that they didn't think I looked very pregnant, in fact, they thought I looked rather skinny. Until A. A took one look at me one day and said "Mrs. S, your belly is really big!"
A colleague of mine approached me to tell me a story....apparently another teacher had asked her how far along I was and she had said a little over three months. Apparently that teacher didn't believe her....she was convinced I was further along than that based on my belly.
(For those of you that have seen me recently, keep in mind all of this happened BEFORE Christmas break....before I truly "popped".)
Your thoughts on these events?
