Let's get a few things straight...
Well, really, let's just get this one thing straight. I am NOT pregnant. Despite how some of my co-workers and parents (not my biological ones, the parents of my kindergarten students) seem to think...I am not pregnant. I have now been told by three different people that I have that "motherly glow" or I look "radiant." Last week one parent asked me if anything was wrong. I had a cold and was very tired that day, so I assumed that is what she was referring to. She said, "No, you just look so radiant" and pryed some more, like I was holding information from her. I was confused, but now I get it. Another parent this morning was bold enough to just flat out ask, "Mrs. Brittany, are you expecting?" I'm sure I turned beat red because I have never been asked that question before. I quickly said no and asked why she thought that. She said, "You just have that motherly glow about you." I assured her I am NOT pregnant. Astonished, I turned to my co-worker and said, "Can you believe what she just asked me?" I told her and she didn't seemed surprised. She said she actually thought about asking me the same question last week. While being radiant can be quite a wonderful compliment, it doesn't seem like one at the moment. I do have to count my blessings though...at least people think I look pregnant because I am "radiant" not because I look fat. That's all...I just wanted to get it out there that I am not expecting. Trust me, when I find out, you will know as well. I can't keep exciting secrets very long :)
