Overheard #4 - I call this one, "I thought 'Baby-Daddy' was just a funny expression."

Two women in line behind me at Walmart, both just a few years younger than me:

"If someone asked me, I don't know what I'd say. I think I'd say, 'Yes.' I mean, I love being with Steven, but..."

I didn't hear what she said for a minute because Norah was talking to me.

"...It's all wrong now. When we were first together, we didn't see anyone else, we didn't have babies with anyone else. But, then, he had a baby with someone else and now it's all wrong."

Her friend tries to comfort her, "I think all relationships go through this."

"Yeah."

Her friend asks, "Are all your kids his kids?"

"Yeah."
