women have been noticing for weeks already.
i took luke to the grocery this week rather early on tuesday morning. he's a great shopper at this age, makes eyes at all the older ladies and generally gets along with everyone. at 8:30 in the morning, we can fly through the store and be home in less than an hour. even with a good shopper, it's best for everyone involved.
this week, luke and my pregnant belly got us a good bit of attention. in addition to the normal glances and smiles, as we were paying and having the groceries bagged, an older asian man waited for us so he could walk out with us.
though i tried to listen closely, his english was rather broken and i struggled to understand him. he asked luke's age and about the baby. i might have told him i'm having twins. he made me a little uncomfortable as we got closer to our car and he insisted on touch luke's hands. but he finally said good-bye and went on his way.
after i finished loading the car, i started to take my cart to the corral. halfway there, a mid-30s-ish man offered to take my cart to the corral for me, noticing that i had my hands rather full with a little squirmer. i thanked him, but was surprised at the attention.
i feel compelled to add, i wasn't wearing my wedding rings, y'all (it was one of those days of pregnancy when it was too uncomfortable).
you think that had anything to do with it?
