I have posted a couple of times about the comments we've received when out with the twins. Most of the time people just don't think about how their funny questions/comments sound, and it offers us with some comic relief.
But today's comment was completely rude, and I believe clearly shows the ugliness that women show to each other.
My friend Lori and I brought the kids to Chick-fil-a for lunch. Emily and her friends were playing, Eli and Elsie were sleeping in their infant car carrier while Lori and I ate our lunch and chit-chatted. Eli's head was cocked to the side, LIKE IT ALWAYS IS.
This woman sat down beside me and motioned to Eli. She said, "If I bring him to you, will you please fix his head?" I can't even describe the look of pure judgment on her face.
I simply responded, "No thank you. He consistently pulls his head forward like that, and will put his head right back if I try to fix it. He is just fine, but thanks again!" (Ask my mom about this... Mom and I troubled over Eli's head every time we put him in his car seat until we realized he was JUST FINE and would put his head back where he wanted it no matter what we thought!)
The women (purely disgusted by my horrible abilities as a mother) then asked me, "How much did they weigh at birth? They are SOOOOO tiny! They must have been born REALLY early!"
I guess the comments when typed out in a blog don't do justice to the incredibly rude, ugly, and judgmental attitude that was worn on this woman's face and vivid in her tone.
Lori and I were completely aghast.
Please Lord, wake me up and give me a shove if I should ever be ugly to another woman.
