Baby Update… They’re Coming!

Well, the time has come. They were scheduled to arrive this coming Tuesday on June 24. What a nice day to arrive! Hopefully it won’t be too hot. It’s two days before my Aunt’s birthday, it is in the middle of the year so both of them won’t have to share birthdays with major gift giving holidays like Christmas, it’ll be warm out so they can have outside parties sometimes and most things are open at this time, and school is usually out at this time so they can celebrate the end of school with their birthdays. I am really looking forward to meeting them and welcoming them home. Read more


Leaving on a jet plane

We are going on vacation. Well, that’s all great, but there are concerns. My mother has brought them up and they are valid concerns. Though I know some of her concerns are more, why can’t I visit her? I would, but my hubby really needs to see his grandma. She’s starting to show her age and we’d like to be able to see her before he mind does keep her from remembering anything.

I understand my mother wanting to see me at her place. I honestly do, but I have seen her more often than my father and I’d like to see him. He too has not been doing well and I haven’t been able to see him since he has been in and out of the hospital. I hope my mother can learn to understand my need for this. I didn’t want her to feel bad that I want to see my dad this badly that I’m willing to fly while pregnant. I’m so tired of not seeing him and this is my chance. Sure, he’ll be coming down when these babies are born most likely in June, but we may not be seeing Jason’s family for much much longer. Read more
