If it were me and my mom kept saying things, I would have to come up with a snarky but gentle reply, I wouldn't be able to help it. Of course, this suggestion could be based on the fact that I've been cranky the past few days....maybe chiromama is right to take the high road.
Since I know the mamas here are great at the fine art of snarkery, perhaps we can all brainstorm a good comeback for you that won't offend her horribly, but will get your point across?
Basically, that you're a big girl and you can make your own clothing choices.
FTR, I love the big belly pouch - the under belly ones do always feel like they're sliding down on me, but the pouch ones I have feel like they give me a bit of much needed support - BUT, hey, it's your
stomach - wear whatever the heck pants you want!!
I'll be thinking of something and if I come up with anything good, I'll come back and post it - in the meantime, you have my sympathies.
: "Last I knew mom, this was America, the land of the free, and there was no officially mandated maternity wear?" Nah, maybe too snarky. Ladies, help us out here!
