I just started to realize why some folks look at me with such pity, bewilderment and awe (albeit without smiling), I look like I am a teenager or in my mid 20s even though I am in my mid 30s.
Sooooo when they see me, my 5-year old and 2-year old, to them I look like a young mom
(and I guess they may presume single b/c I get these looks when I am alone with the boys and never with my husband around)
…who’s overwhelmed, gotten over her head and spitting out kids, and maybe charges to the state.
*sigh* It’s okay. So long as I nor the kids get bad treatment b/c of someone else’s ignorance or presumptions, I’m good.
It’s times like this that I long for an older more mature look. It’s a shame that other people can project their bullshit onto you giving you uncessary stress. Even though when I notice these folks, I get annoyed slightly, that is too much unnecessary stress that I and my unborn child do not need!
