Being a mom of twins has given me a bit of “celebrity” status up here in Canada. Strangers who normally mind their own business and go about their day have been seen RUNNING over to me to ask about / look at my twins.
Most of them smile and tell me how cute my peeps are, but more often than not, there is ONE looming question that they just can’t stop themselves from asking. So here it is, the big question that REALLY pisses me off:
“Are you breastfeeding?”
Come on people? Am I asking you about what your doing with your breasts? Or your penis for that matter? (Yes – strange MEN stop me and ask me if I am breastfeeding – isn’t that weird? creepy? inappropriate?) I wonder if these same strange men would ask my husband “So, did you circumcise your son? Are you circumcised?”
Even though it really pisses me off, I have done my best to answer politely (and honestly) that yes I did both: breast feeding & bottle feeding. So now it’s my turn to ask you…
What personal questions about your kids (or about your parenting) have strangers asked that really piss you off? I can’t wait to read your comments
