What a simply GORGEOUS picture!!
You know, I was thinking about this the other day. DH's grandmother is not my favorite person. She has a tendency to be mean, maybe not on purpose, but grrrrr. :LOL Anyway, I was thinking back to the first time I talked to her after she found out I was pregnant. It was at her granddaughter's baby shower, and she grabbed my hand with this huge grin on her face. I swear, I think it was the first time I ever saw her happy.
Anyway, she asked me the specifics; what hospital, what doctor, when due, if we're finding out the sex. And I answered her totally honestly about homebirth, midwife, end of June, and no.
I had made the decision early on that I was not going to "hide" what we were doing, even though it had occurred to me that I'd end up in heated arguments with a few people, and she was one of the people I was planning on arguing with.
But, we didn't argue.
Then, on Christmas Eve, we were at her house, to have dessert with family, as is the yearly custom (the only time we see this side of the family is Christmas, unless there is a baby shower, wedding shower, Christening, wedding or funeral during the year). Her granddaughter had just had her baby, and we were passing pictures around. I overheard her talking to one of her daughters-in-law about me.
"Sharon-anne is planning an all NATURAL birth." And she sounded PROUD. Made me grin. Anyway, feeling sappy, and thought I'd share.
Moving right along, I'm sure most of you know that the East coast is fairly coveredin white stuff. Yuck. We have 15 inches in my neck of the woods, with another 3 inches or so on the way. Double yuck. Guess who shoveled out part of the driveway and cleaned off one car, one work truck and one work van? Triple yuck.
This is why I told my husband he was not allowed to sustain any major injuries while I am pregnant. Of course, he never listens to me, and so he now has a broken foot. I think he did it on purpose. :LOL
