To The Strangers Who Feel It’s Necessary to Point Out the Obvious

Somewhere in recent history it apparently became acceptable to say completely inappropriate things to the mom out in public with kids. I assume this happened around the same time it apparently became acceptable to say stupid things like, “you look like you’re about to pop!” and “are you SURE you’re not having twins?” to pregnant women.
