I had to return something to Target today. After "unshopping," I checked out the maternity section without high hopes. There were a few cute things, so I went into the dressing room to try them on only to find that maternity dresses are ridiculously short and scandalously low-cut. I took three dresses in with me, and when I handed them back to the "attendant" on my way out, she said, "You don't want any of them?" I just smiled politely and said that they didn't fit right. Well, then I got a little ways away and she said, "You do know these are maternity, right? That might be why they didn't fit." I told her that I was pregnant. With this reply, I got this shocked look from the dear elderly lady that seemed to say, "You naughty girl." Apparently what some have told me is true: When I'm not wearing makeup and my hair is in a ponytail I look like I'm in high school.
Now, I'm glad this lady has morals. If I were in high school, it would obviously be a lousy situation and one that wouldn't be pleasing to my Savior. However, I'm not! I've graduated from college, been married almost three years, and we were planning on having a baby.
So, on top of the shirt that reminds people that my stomach is off limits, I guess I also need to have one that says, "I'm older than I look and I am happily married!" just for those days where I didn't have time to fix my hair and put on makeup.
