Dental Hygienist (which, from now on, I will address as H): When is your baby due?
Me: In October
H: How nice! Is this your first?
Me: No. It's my fourth.
H: Fourth?!? Really? Were they ALL planned?
Me: Um.... I mean, we, um, always wanted four kids.
H: Really? Four? That seems like a lot.
Me: Yeah. My husband and I only have one sibling between the two of us. We wanted a big family.
H: So your done after this one, right?
Me: yes, as far as we know. We wanted four kids.
H: I could never have that many. I just don't know how you do it. Like the Duggars. They have too many, in my opinion.
Me: well, it would be hard.
H: So, do you stay at home?
H: Oh, you must coupon, then!
Me: A little, I guess. I'm not crazy with it it, but I try. I have friends who are much better at it than me. I just don't have time or the energy with 3 kids to run from store to store.
H: Oh, I don't do coupons. I don't have time, either. But, I do shop at night.
Me: After the kids go to bed is normally when I run/walk.
H: I get up at 4:30 to do that. Wait. You still run? I'd be scared to death something would happen.
Me: I just stopped running around 20 weeks. I still sneak in a few minutes here during my walks.
H: Here comes the Dr. (to the dr) Dr. C! Guess what! This is her FOURTH baby! Her FOURTH!
End horrific, uncomfortable scene.
(I can hardly restrain myself from posting the snide remarks I was making in my head. I'm sure you can imagine them, too.)
