Advice for the mother-to-be...

...as discussed with my co-workers today. One is officially 4 weeks from her due date, the other has two young kids under her belt (so to speak).

Advice #1
The correct response to all the unsolicited advice you will receive:

With a big smile: "Thank you for the advice!" (and do what you were planning to do anyway)

Advice #2
The correct response to yet-another-toy from grandma-to-be:

Said with complete honesty and enthusiasm: "What a great thing to have at grandma's house to play with!!"

You're welcome.

Good advice. It really burns me how pregnant women are always regaled with horror stories from other women -- "My cousin Luanne was in labour for 89 hours and she pushed so hard her eyes came out of their sockets and now she can't remember her postal code" -- that, and people going up to pregnant women and fondling their bellies. One woman I know had the perfect antidote for that -- she'd reach out and squeeze the offender's breasts or testicles as they groped her stomach.

Hey pj-whose-blog-is-broken...

"now she can't remember her postal code" LOL

I'm going to tell my co-worker the antidote today. She's three weeks away from her due date and has probably had it all.
