That's when I smacked her with my belly.....

Poor Katie.

There she sat on the front row in RS (it's because she came in late....probably not because she wanted to be there).

I always sit on the 2nd row, close enough for me to be able to pay attention, but not on the front row because I'm scared of being stepped on.

After the lesson (in which Katie made some fantastic and thoughtful remarks) I started to make my way toward the door.

I waddle/side-shuffled toward the door trying to get my church bag over my shoulder while taking baby-steps sideways through the aisle of chairs. My flip-flops flipped and flopped loudly because I don't believe in wearing flip-flops to church but they don't make real shoes as big as my swollen canoes feet. Since I don't believe in wearing flip-flops at church it's necessary for them to flip and flop loudly to attract the attention of everyone in the building.

As I approached the end of the row (where Katie was sitting on the chair in front of me) I turned to start walking forward and put a stop to the side-shuffle/waddle combo.

That's when my big fat belly smacked her in the head.

She turned, looked up at me, and laughed out loud.

I bumbled and tried my best to discreetly apologize. "I'M SO SORRY!" I bellowed discreet isn't my thing. "I STILL CAN'T GET USED TO HOW HUGE I AM!"

Fortunately she's been pregnant before and laughed some more while telling me I'll never get used to my belly being that big. Ever.

That's unfortunate, it would be nice to not ram my kid into the heads of unsuspecting victims.


  1. You're always good for a laugh.

    I'm constantly bonking into things, too. It's an occupational hazard. :)

  2. This story makes me laugh and laugh! Hang in there, you're almost finished!

    ps, I was also incredibly embarassed in RS yesterday when the TEACHER had to say, "UM, Marianne, your kid is stinking up the place, will you go take care of that?" Ok, so that's not exactly what she said, but I was mortified that she had to stop her lesson to get my attention.

  3. That's awesome!!! I'm sorry about that. You're almost done!!

  4. Memories...too funny! Did you know bumping into everything is a sign your pregnancy is almost over? I think it happens right before you drop :)

  5. LOL! I wish I could see your cute belly in real life. :)

  6. Hahahahahahahahahahaha! You can smack your belly into my head any day ;)

  7. Oh sad! But totally funny too (almost as bad as me spilling water all in my face ;D). Was it Katie Darling?

  8. nah that would be Katie Caldwell - who is fortunately every bit as kind as Katie Darling. :)

  9. I witnessed the event, and chuckled at you. Yes, it was funny!
