40. Priest made a comment at my daughter's christening about when #2 was coming
I'm still not sure if he was joking. Seriously though, do you guys think it's insulting to be asked "if" you have kids? Not when are you going to or why don't you but "Do you have kids?" is an insulting question? Certainly some people are just being nosy but part of getting acquainted with someone is finding out things like do they have kids or pets, do they like football games, do they enjoy Cohen Brothers movies. It's part of how the whole process of making friends works isn't it? I'm not saying anyone is wrong if they feel offended and I would certainly be horrified if I ever offended anyone by asking but for me it's just a way of making friendly conversation and getting to know someone. I don't define myself by being a mom but I am a mom and as such knowing that I have that in common with someone else is a starting point.
