Weekly Highlights


1. I received an e-vite to a former coworker's baby shower. Ummm, no.

2. The obligatory work baby shower: I supervise a girl who is pregnant and was asked by another staff I supervise when we were going to start planning the shower.

My response: "Thanks for volunteering."

3. A former staff decided to pop in to show off her newborn baby. I pasted a smile on my face and forced myself out of my office to ooh and ahh about how wonderful she looks and how beautiful the baby is. As talk turned to the great tax break she got for her newborn child (apparently, the government loves fertiles too), she said, "Hey, do you girls mind if I breast feed?"

Ummmm, seriously?

One word...Yuck.

Makes me glad I work in an office of older people. Not many of us are of reproductive age. I'm so sorry you had that kind of day.

Hugs.

Lea said...

P.S. Maybe the government should give us a tax break for fertility treatments! Or just pay for them all together!

I'm so over fertiles just now.

And baby showers - well, don't get me started!!

I know exactly what you mean. I've had a week of it at work as well. In fact, I am sitting here typing this and having to listen to a woman talk about the amount of people that she knows who are currently on maternity.

Penny said...

Oh, yikes. Sorry. Your office sounds truely unbearable.

Emily said...

OUCH! Tough week. I am sorry!

Lauren said...

Oh good grief. Sorry, that must have been teeth-grindingly frustrating!

Lynda said...

and then you woke up, right?
this just sounds like a horrible nightmare!

I'm so sorry but you survived and that's the big thing. You did what you had to do.

What an awful series of events!

Alex and Jill said...

Ugh...so sorry you were smothered with all things baby.

I hope you have a wonderful Valentines Day!

((HUGS))

Faith said...

Ugh, those weeks just AREN'T fun.

Jane G said...

I hear ya! The amount of pregnant ladies in my workplace is unreal. Every time a ripe batch go on maternity, a newly pregnant lot come along. And I'm still not one of them :(

Hang in there honey x

You have got to be kidding.... right!!! It sounds like a new show on TLC..."All Things Baby.... ALL the Time" I am thankful that at least where I work there are only a couple of us that are of the age to reproduce and so far, none of us are able to.

GAAAHHHH!!! Seriously, I am not sure if it's worse having people "comfortable" around you or afraid to say anything for fear of upsetting you.... Keep your chin up and am sending good vibes your way!!
