 While I was at the Commissary today ( that's a grocery store for you non-military folk Happy Wink)   I was walking around with DS3 sitting up in the cart, and these two ladies walked by and noticed DS3 sitting there talking and she said "what a sweet baby", and I said "Thank you"   Well, she then noticed my big pregnant belly and said "Oh my,  you are gonna have your hands full!"   I said Yeah, I have two older boys at home too (they were with Grandpa while I was shopping) and she smiled & said "How nice" and asked about this one I was carrying and I told her it was another boy. TOTALLY expecting that "comment", and that is NOT at all what she said.. she actually said YAY!!   Yay, and she smiled big, and said how sweet that was, and I said " Yeah, four of a kind"  Good Luck Clover
  Then they congratulated me and walked on, but as they were walking away I heard the one lady say "How cool"  Hearts

 I stood there and cried!   It felt SO good to hear some appreciation instead of the "comments"    You all know them, so I don't have to repeat them. LOL  

It was just so great to hear that today and it totally made my day!!!      Happy Smile

 

Oh, and on a side note!!   I am SO happy to say that my DS1 FINALLY agreed to let me cut his hair!!   It used to be super long, so long you couldn't see his eyes, and it was covering his neck!!   

So, I just wanted to share a pic of my gorgeous son Cole.. my oldest "baby"  Happy Wink

 what a cute boy you have!! So nice of the lady to say that.  It makes a world of difference when somebody makes nice comments rather than the negative ones we are so used to hearing.

Awww I would have cried too. I hate those comments I get with 3 of the same sex then expecting another DD. People need to be more like these ladies. I noticed my youngest two will be the same age as your two youngest :) Your son is going to be one popular boy among the girls.

That is so sweet! It's amazing how such small things can really brighten one's day.

I remember when I was pg with DS3 and still having major GD I was having a particularly bad day and was in fact crying as I was driving into the toll booth. The toll operator was an older lady and was actually quite slow in giving me my change. I was trying to hide my tears when she noticed my belly and asked me what I was having. I said "my 3rd boy" and that was it. She looked at me with a sweet, warm smile that reminded me of my Grandmother and said "Oh honey what a blessing!". With those simple words my spirits were lifted for the rest of the day. I drove into that toll booth in tears and drove off with a smile.

I've had multiple occasions where I've been out shopping with my three boys and woman will go out of their way to come tell me how lucky I am. It's so strange when I'm in the depths of GD and here there are so many people who would love to have what I do. It makes me feel grateful but at the same time very un grateful....does that makes sense?

Awww...   That made me all warm and fuzzy inside too!   It's amazing how just a few simple words can change your whole mood or outlook!  Happy Smile        

 I am still on a "high" of hearing that. It made me feel just wonderful!! Hearts
