We’ve all been there and done or said stupid things around a woman deep into her pregnancy.
It’s hard not to notice, especially as most moms are constantly rubbing the rather large orbs around their waists, drawing even more attention to them. (that touch is instinctive nurturing by the way)
Don’t get me wrong, I believe it’s one of the most beautiful images on the planet, knowing that a mother has endured 9 months of discomfort, because her love for that child surpasses her self-love.
So please dudes, don’t say stupid things like…”Oh my God, you’re huge!”
Or…”I’ll bet you can’t wait to get rid of that thing!”
And finally the classic…”May I touch your belly?”
In the Baltimore area, it seems there are a few not so good men who’ve said what might be the worst thing of all to a pregnant woman…”Stick ’em up!”
Yeah that’s right, two of Maryland’s finest looked right past a woman’s physical condition, even though she was in labor, and on her way to a hospital, and performed an equal opportunity attempted robbery.
All I can say is, there’s a special place for jerks like you.
As natural as it is for oafs like me to say stupid things, it’s also natural to want to hold open doors, or help pregnant women carry heavy packages, or let them go ahead of us in line at the bank or grocery store.
I just pray that the judge these two monsters face is somebody’s mother.
I’m pretty sure she’ll have no problem knowing what to say.
