Subbing! Happy, blessed New Year, everyone! We had about 35 people over for lunch today, so I'm too exhausted to say anymore than that! Love to you all! Hellooooooo, Toddlerhood!
Erin, I posted before I read your post. I'm sorry for the anguish you are experiencing. I don't know the answer, but I don't think you are in any way abnormal, and I'm sorry that you are only getting trite phrases as "support". It comes down to exactly what you said--people don't get it. They just have no clue, and most of them don't want to examine the uncomfortable questions it would take to begin to understand.
: I can understand the desire for a "redo" but of course you are right that it's not the solution if that's your only reason for having a baby.
However, that said, I submit that IMHO, there's *never* a bad time to have a baby, LOL!
Also, BTW, we are now almost practically neighbors! We just moved up to Fort Wayne! We have been here almost 2 weeks--got here just in time for the ice storm! I would LOVE to figure out a way to meet up with you sometime....maybe when the weather starts warming a bit (that does happen eventually, right?), LOL!
