Father Embarrassed by Daughter's Loud Questions
by Adam, Stay at Home Dad
One day my wife and I went to my wife's prenatal checkup at her doctor's office. We had taken our little five year old girl Kylie with us so she could see where her mommy came to the doctor.
Kylie gets rather obsessed with new things that she finds interesting, and pregnancy was one of those things. My wife was about six months along and showing pretty well.
As with any OB office, there were other pregnant women there. Unfortunately for me, my wife went back to the examination room and left me in the waiting room with little miss questions.
Of course, when you are in a doctor's office, everyone whispers. Well, not Kylie.
We were sitting there waiting on her mother to come out and women would walk by. Every time an expectant mother would walk by Kylie would ask "Does she have a baby in her tummy like mommy?"
Of course most of them did....except for one. Other doctors also had offices in this facility.
One lady came out of the back from seeing her doctor. The lady was very overweight, and had trouble walking. I saw the lady walk out and I knew that Kylie was about to embarrass me.
I was right.
The lady walks in front of us, within 3 feet of where we were sitting. Everything was quiet. Then Kylie saw the lady. She looked at her, then at me, then back at the lady. I could tell by the look on Kylie's face that she was perplexed.
Kylie looked back at me and said, "Daddy, she looks like she has two babies in her tummy!" I could feel my face turning a bright shade of red.
The lady obviously heard her, as did everyone else in the doctor's office. Kylie didn't know what she had said. I simply turned to her and said, "Honey, not everyone has a baby in their tummy."
As if it couldn't get any worse, Kylie got a look of understanding on her face and replied, "Oh, she is just fat?" I politely got up, took Kylie by the hand, and continued our wait for her mother in the car.
