So in one of my classes the girls have developed this strange habit of walking up to me, rubbing my stomach and saying “BABY!”
This makes me extremely uncomfortable on a number of levels – and usually I say something like “umm.. no baby. Please don’t do that” – but unfortunately my protests have not stopped this somewhat disturbing pattern.
On some level I thought the girls understood that – in truth – I was not actually with child… until yesterday when one of the girls walked up during class to give me this:
That’s right. It’s a baby rattle. These girls are even telling their parents that I’m pregnant and I am now getting gifts for my
(thankfully!) non-existent child.
Love to you all,
