I haven't become very involved with the Catholic school yet because of work. I am sure when I start attending school functions it will be more noticeable, especially since my mom and sister will probably attend. We all sit together at mass already.
I dread the "where is your husband question". One time at one particular function I was asked this three times. My usual response is: "he's not in the picture". They usually say they are sorry. I usually tell them I am not. We move on. The fourth time my response was: "hopefully dead in a ditch somewhere because I could sure use his SS check since he isn't paying child support". I am ashamed of my behavior, but it turns out that their kid was the class bully but they would not allow him near my child and they never talked to me again. The father did glare at me sometimes.
