Faux Pas

Sometimes being a parent means trying to figure out the right thing to say and do when there isn't a right thing to say or do. At all.

A customer service rep at WalMart had just gotten done directing us to the garbage bags. She was nice and smiled the whole time. All in all, she did a great job.

And then, a sweet little voice piped up, loud and clear:

"Mommy, why does that lady have a huge tummy?"

Awwwwwwwwwwwww...that is so cute.
Maybe I should get pregnant and go work at wal-mart.

Very funny of that kid to say that.
what did you answer?

Well.... The lady wasn't pregnant. If she had been pregnant we wouldn't have been nearly so flabbergasted and speechless.

I appologized simply and politely, "I'm so sorry", and my wife immediately scolded Lauren.

We couldn't really belive it had happened.
