Brought a Baby Back

I came back from a whirlwind trip to Vegas yesterday. (More on the trip later). I was at the house when our TCU nannies brought the kids home from school. The nannies look like this:

I was worn out from Vegas and an early flight home and wearing yoga pants and a clingy gray t-shirt with flip flops. As I was talking to the nannies, Luke ran up to me with excitement, placed his hand gently on my stomach, and asked, "Mom! Are you going to have another BABY!?!?"

I closed my eyes and took a deep breath before answering him, "No . . . I'm not having a baby . . . I'm just fat."

The TCU girls looked embarrassed and amused. I felt embarrassed and amused. Luke was disappointed and responded, "Awe-uh!"

I squinted my eyes at him and asked with surprise, "Do you want me to have another baby?"

He looked hopeful and said, "Yeah!"

I shook my head. "No. I'm not pregnant, but I am reconsidering my outfit and will be starting a diet immediately."

Luke ran on. I groaned. The girls giggled.

I am currently on a diet and I intend to lose this food-baby ASAP.

oh my goodness, that is not funny! kids! Zach likes to drum on my belly, good lord, kids!

But, you have to be able to enjoy yourself on vaca and I feel positive you will have lost your "food baby" in no time! ;-)

But you aren't fat at all. I've seen you. I know. ;)

Seriously, you came home to those chicks? wow.... I always travel in my most comfortable clothes (which I can assure you aren't very stylish) so I can only imagine how I would have felt around them.

BUT...food baby? I doubt that. You're beautiful and I would chalk this up to "my pants were so baggy they made me LOOK like I'm sporting some extra weight". :)

Oh Angie, you're so kind to me! No, really, I look like I'm about 5 months pregnant. I'm okay with that, but I'd rather look like I'm just 3 months pregnant. Luke's honesty really does drive it home though.
