Oooh, I have a lot. LOL
Said to me by a co-worker after eavesdropping on my friend and I discussing my DS's birth defects: "Well you waited forever to go to the doctor."
Me: -blink- "Yeeeeahh, because being weighed, having my blood pressure taken, and peeing in a cup would have magically prevented my baby's brain for forming improperly."
(Not to mention that my first OB appointment was at 12 weeks, which I believe is pretty typical!)
Random lady at walmart, commenting on us carrying then 3wo DS around the store: "You shouldn't have your baby out of the carseat like that in a store, he'll get sick!"
Comments made to my sister by family members who were trying to get her to circ:
Sister's FIL: "Well, if it was a tumor or a heart defect, you'd do it, right??"
Sister's BF: "I will let you name him whatever you want and do whatever you want, even breastfeed if you want to, just let me make this one decision."
Our mom: "You HAVE to have him circ'd or you'll have to clean it out with baking soda every day!" and "You need to get him circ'd because Bram isn't circ'd and he's had infection after infection." (My DS has NEVER had an infection of his foreskin. EVER.)
Our 18yo sister: "I saw Bram's penis once and it was all infected and it looked like it was about to rot off!" (The last time said sister saw DS was when he was 9 months old and he never so much as had a diaper rash
until over 15 months old.)
Conversation with a neighbor while I was going out to check my mail, DS in tow:
Neighbor: "She is so pretty, always smiling!"
Me: "Well thank you! But he's a boy."
Neighbor: -confused, shakes head-
Me: -thinking he just didn't hear me- "He's a boy
Neighbor: -comes closer, right up to us and grabs DS's hair- "No, this is a girl."
Me: -laughs- "Nooooo, he's a BOY
. He's my SON."
Neighbor: -speaks slowly and loudly- "Honey
, this is A. GIRL."
Me: -blinks, walks back inside-
Said neighbor still refers to DS as "she" every time we run into each other.
ETA: I forgot the best one! LOL
Lady at the grocery store commenting on then 2yo DS being in a mei tai: "Why don't you let him get down and walk??"
Me: "Well, he can't walk."
Lady: -laughs- "Well, of course he can't, if you don't ever put him down!"
Me: -big sweet grin- "Actually, I'm pretty damn sure he can't walk because he has a joint deformity."
-nosy lady is speechless as I walk away-
