Today from one of the women I nanny for, I got
"OH! You're looking pregnant!"
I was sitting with L on my lap and I thought she was talking about my fat rolls. "Um, no, just fat. Not sucking in right now."
"Oh, that's just being pregnant (gaining weight). But I mean your face."
me- blank stare
"Well, like my face got..." holding her hands next to her face with cheeks full of air to mean her face exploded?
me- blank stare and I think I was making a face that said "Are you serious? what's wrong with you?"
her- looking away and changing the subject
Really, you have to tell me my face looks fat? Thanks, that's just the pick-me-up I needed today. And coming from all 110 pounds of you, that means so much to me. Ugh, why do people feel the need to comment on your weight??? How is that appropriate?
