Out of the Mouths of Babes

"Mrs. Parker, Nathan wants to know if you're pregnant."

Me: "Why?"

Student: "He says you look pregnant."

Me (seriously reconsidering pizza as a diet): "What?!"

Student: "Yeah, he says you've been wearing shirts lately that make your stomach look like it's getting bigger."

Me (seriously reconsidering wearing tube tops to work): "Ummmm....I'm not."

Student: "Oh, okay."

Me: silently weeping over my Dr. Pepper and Dortios

Sit-up regime begins tomorrow...after I finish my 11oz bag of Raisinets.

Wow, I would feel bad for you, except that's the most ridiculous thing anyone's ever said. And I'm the girl to whom someone said, "You had the baby. When will you stop looking pregnant?"

hey, at least it's just the babydoll style shirts and not your belt-overhang, right?

as a side note, if you're ever reading a raisin in the sun with your class and then watching the video, i highly recommend raisinets as a movie snack. completely cheesy, and the kids will roll their eyes, but secretly they love it.
