People ask me how old my daughter is all the time. I know the reason is because developmentally she is advanced for her size and people are curious. When I respond that she is 7 months old, 99% of the time people respond with, " Oh my gosh, she s soooo tiny!" I don't always feel the need to explain that she was born 8 weeks early (and sometimes I just get tired of explaining all time). Kendra is 13.5 lbs and perfect in every way. She is way ahead for a 5 month old and just a little behind for a 7 month, according to the pediatrician.
I know that most people mean well and are not trying to be rude, but I sometimes feel that their response is innappropriate and a little bit nosy (because I know they want me to explain).
Has anyone else had experience with this? How did you handle it?
