This weekend I ran over to my little cousin's third birthday party.
All if not most of the family was going to be there, Chris was invited but not capable of coming.
It has been more than 'awhile' since I've examined under the entire familys' eye.
In fact most of my 'family' isn't family.
It's just 'church' family.
The church that my parents currently attend is very-very--very intimate.
As in the only comparison of size I can give you is around fifty-ish people or less.
Most people there are very well acquainted with each other through relatives/blood/gossip.
If I haven't bothered mention, I was no longer encouraged to attend church after my parents had discovered my pregnancy.
Going on with what occurred at the party, my 'real' family was nice regarding it.
With church goers it involved a lot of approaches with 'casual' questions.
"So...how's your baby?"
Awkward retreat to the bathroom.
"Where's your husband?"
I don't have a husband??
"You look so pudgy for just eating vegetables!"
Mental face slap and sarcastic smile.
I don't mind being questioned.
But I mind being questioned by rude people who have judged me and expect to know the intimate parts of my life.
Which is not happening.
My Uncle, Aunt and cousins were all so amazingly sweet and generous to me though.
And I loved that.
Being at the party with all the very rowdy older children irritated me to say the least.
It mostly reminded me why I dislike untamed kids and remained away from these festivities.
Ending on a positive note, Chris finally found a job and I'm off to search for another tomorrow.
When asked on what was his preference at work, Chris answered with :
"ALL I WANT IS A PAYCHECK."
One step at a time right?
Thickest head of hair on three year old.
Ngl, it's genetics (;
