. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Thank you Target lady for making me cry

Thank you Target lady for making me cry

I feel like there should be a pregnancy or even new mom link up every week called what made me cry this week.  I felt like I had a pretty good hold on my emotions at the beginning of my pregnancy and can barely think of anything that made me cry during those first 12 weeks or so.  This last trimester? I get teary eyed real easily.  

Here's a few from the week: 

Feeling overwhelmed with things that need to get done.  

Sad news from a friend. 

A conversation with Chris about me cooking (or lack there of). 

Those are all just about validated, but this one not so much.  And I managed to hold myself together and not waste more than a few tears.  

Addi and I were walking into Target the other day and I was talking on the phone to my mom while I was trying to get a cart out of the front of the store.  I put Addi down in front of me, between myself and the cart, as she likes to "push" the cart with me.  So we were probably moving a little slower than the normal single shopper, but Addilyn was cooperating just fine.  

This lady came up next to me and so, so rudely said "Can you either get off the phone or watch your kid?" With the rudest, meanest look and attitude.  I mumbled something like "Ummmmm... . . . .  My daughter is just fine and right next to me."  To which she said, "Well you've blocked me at least three times."  Which I'm really not sure how that is possible, but either way super rude and I did have to try hard to not cry.  

Later in the store we were walking around and I said to Addilyn that I didn't want to run into that lady again and she said "Yeah. She was really, really weird."  Oops.  Not sure where she got that one, but all I could do was laugh and not correct her.

I thought I was good too, but I feel that after Lily died, my emotions hit an all time high, still to this day and actually as I write this I am crying watching The Voice... Yup, but commercials will do it, pictures, songs... It's horrible haha. I wish the tears were the inky crazy emotion... But you can add in mood swings too haha poor Mike!
That lady was out of line!!

It drives me crazy how people can be so rude. I wish we all could just extend a little grace to each other. So sorry friend!

Kids pick up on everything and obviously her day had been ruined by someone else. You're an amazing mom.

ugh, people can be so rude, and I've been there with the hormones...everything we watched on TV made me cry. Mr. would say, let's not watch that, you might cry...haha! And it would be something like Modern Family, lol!

Wow that makes me so sad! People are so rude! If you do a link up I don't think it would be for just pregnant people, I am not pregnant and can name a few times I have cried in the past month. Maybe its because my little one is teething and not sleeping well. But non the less people need to think before they act or talk.

best,
Nicole

Awful! People can be so inconsiderate and rude. I have my grocery list on my phone, so have my phone out when I shop. SO many people comment about me not being able to put my phone away even to grocery shop, it makes me so mad!!
