Matt's been gone a lot lately as he's already working at the new shop and staying with his dad during the week. So I am a single mom most of the time. Lately, I've been noticing that more and more people are staring at me when I am out with the kids. And I don't mean that they are just fixing their gaze on us longer than is socially acceptable. I mean people are slowing their cars, pointing and talking about us. I guess it could be that Hanna is adorable. Somewhat more likely it that I look like a lunatic as I try to manage Damon and Kira with Hanna on my hip. But I presume it is because I have *gasp* 5 children. I'm used to people commenting to me about our family size, and so far it has been pretty positive, but I don't see why that would warrant a stare. I think I'm going to have to learn to stare back, lean over to one of my kids, tell them a joke, giggle and continue staring. I grew up with lots of siblings, I should be able to handle myself in a staring contest.
If not I'll have to get us all new t-shirts from Cafe Press with "Yes they are all mine." or "Yes I know what causes this." OR if all else fails I should just buy the kids shirts that say "STOP STARING AT MY MOM'S TITS." Yes, that should do it.
