Perhaps best they don’t know

As we’ve gotten closer to our due date I’ve noticed a marked difference in behavior between those who know when we’re due and those who can just see that we’re expecting.  Since I’m not terribly big, most people just seem to assume I’ve got a ways to go.  But those who are counting down the weeks with us (and see us regularly) tend to treat the baby like an impending medical emergency (“You’re going to drive to the grocery store?  Make sure you take Sydney with you!!!”).  Sweet as it is to have others looking out for us, I’m kind of glad that I don’t have much of the “any minute now” look going on.  No need for Joe-on-the-street to take one look at me, freeze, and holler, “Somebody boil the water!”
