Maia - sorry to hear about the showing. Positive thoughts for the open house going your way. Just a quick thought that came to me - if you use any divination tools, would it give you more information about why they cancelled?
About the MIL thing - yeah she is talking about nursing. She has also been telling DD that she has all the "right" toys for DS - cars, trains, etc. DD doesn't like dolls very much. She is really into cars so that's what we let her play with. She also has been telling her how to play with the toys and stuff. Tells her that little girls wear dresses and how to act like a princess. I just want DD and DS to discover who they are, find their own likes/dislikes, and be accepting of people. She also has been telling DH to do all kinds of stuff - go out here and there, pick up stuff, move things...and complained about the temps here, made us get an a/c unit. Lost it on us one day when there wasn't coffee made (we don't even drink coffee here, neither of us like it). Anyways, I am going to need to do something to let go of all this in the next day or two. I am also having this urge to process my birth experience, I think I just want to cry tears of joy for the beauty of my own birth and the power of my body. I was really able to see all the things I know about birth lived out in my own experience.
You are talking Celsius, right? It's 90*F here right now, at nearly 4pm, and I can't even imagine 48 at the moment
They canceled because of location, that's all I know. Gah.
Your MIL needs to zip it and mind her own beeswax....sorry, but not really. People like that really piss me off Does your DH really do what she says?? Was she like this when y'all got married? Was she like this to your dd? How old is dd anyway?
YAY on the birth, though; it sounds beautiful. Go ahead and cry tears of joy, mama! You deserve it!

Someone that held one of mine and wouldn't instantly give him back when he started looking for a boob, would find themselves not holding him (and that happened) for a considerable amount of time! Enjoy your baby moon and worry not about individual replies!
GMTA, Cari And thanks for the vibes for the house!

They /did/ get a fruit squeeze (little pouch of fruit and veggie smoothie that I keep in the car) just in case blood sugar was an issue, but no... the day may have started over, but it wasn't starting over with treats!
Good on you, mama! I hear ya. How's it going today? When is the bean's due date?

Really? Oh, you are sweet to say so!
Not sure when you popped in here, but if you don't know the story, in a nutshell, M and I went out in high school. Twice (not two times, but two lengths of time). We reconnected after 35 years and are An Item again It took us less than a week of phone calls to realize we're still crazy in love with each other, and that was October of '09. He's in MA, I'm in NC, and we've been having a long distance ever since. We've had brief visits, but my house is on the market so my boy and I can move up there and we can be a family forever For now, we're getting by with short visits, phone, and web cam....sigh.
