We had a funny experience last week that I want to share. I suppose it “happens” a lot, but we don’t know about it, because no one says anything directly to us. We went out of town (near to Austin) for CarKiller to see a recruiter. We were waiting in the office for the E-7 we had an appointment with to return. Once he finally came in, he asked CarKiller if LittleDood was his son.
Man, you should have seen the looks on their faces when we told them that they are brothers and I am mom to all…. and that there were more kids elsewhere! (we only brought MissCreativity and LittleDood along on this trip.)
After that, CarKiller told me that one time, recently, someone remarked to him something about “his wife,” ….. meaning ME! <GASP> How weird is that? I was just telling a friend that I don’t know whether to rejoice in my OBVIOUS “youthful appearance” that I could be mistaken for his wife OR if I should feel badly for CarKiller!
Come on, folks! Haven’t you seen families with kids whose ages span 20+ years before? LOL! No, I suppose they haven’t. Funny!
