Last week, CVS had a great sale on diapers. Many different kinds were on sale at 75% off, and you could even pair some good coupons with that! I went and bought them out of the newborn size, since they only had 5 pkgs left. I still haven’t totally decided about the whole diapering thing. While I think I’ll probably go with cloth diapers, I may not switch until after Baby Girl is out of the 12-diapers-a-day stage.
That’s a lot of laundry.
Anyway, I haven’t decided but I figured that, if I do initially go with regular diapers, I wouldn’t get a better price than that and, if not, I can always return them or gift them to someone else. I think I know at least 15 pregnant women right now.
The point of all this… I take my 5 packs of diapers to the register and after a minute, a man lines up behind me. He looks at me and my stash and asks, “Do you have a lot of babies?”
Umm… can we give him a tact award?
“Well, I don’t even have one yet” is my response. In my head, I’m thinking: Clearly you don’t have any, or you would know this isn’t a lot of diapers.
I think that’s the funniest interaction I’ve had with a stranger yet. I haven’t had any awkward moments and, actually, no one has assumed that I’m pregnant unless they already knew me. Maybe this lucky streak will continue. I have a friend who, while pregnant, had a college student ask her, “Are you sure it isn’t twins?”
Now that should certainly win some kind of award.
