Michele, i'm soooooo sorry to hear this............................hugs to you and your entire family!!!!

I miss my grandparents dearly. I try to think of it this way, at least I lost my grandparents when I was a lil older, my gr'pa when I was 16, but my grandma when I was 23, so she got to see me graduate from high school, college, get my own house

and for yours, they got to know you guys got married and they got a beautiful great grandchild

I know even with knowing that, nothing softens the heartache. Prayers for you and your family!

I'm hoping to NOT have baby things to do for at least a couple of years yet. My DD & I are going shopping next weekend with one of her stepdaughters to pick up a few things for her wedding. Then I imagine the grandson & his girlfriend will be next. THEN the babies can come along. LOL

It's just starting here, my sister is due 2/14 but I'm 99% sure this will be the only one. I'm loving it (being a 1st time auntie) but I have all these ideas running in my head, I just got to get them down (which is why I am making a to do list!)

WHENEVER I FREAKING WANT TO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! lmao......you knew I would say that first

Seriously, this is not a good topic for me and my DH right now. When we were planning my surgery, after the surgery I started on this medication that I was gonna be on for 6 months, and then after the 6 months was over (in March), we thought we would start trying in the summer after we moved into the house.....well........now that the surgery is over, I changed my mind. I'm sooooo not ready. There's too much to do, and I'm pretty selfish when it comes to my time. I told him that I think I would be happy with not having them....and yeah, that didn't go over well. He would NEVER push me, but he really wants them and I think he would be a ROCKIN dad. I just think I would be a sucky mom.

Keep in mind, I am an only child, no brothers or sisters, and I'm so used to being by myself and doing what I want. I'm struggling as it is with balancing things out with my DH, b/c remember my ex was never around due to his drinking, etc, so when I was older with him, I was still used to doing whatever I wanted.

So there's your long answer, lol, but in short, NO TIME SOON. But if it were to happen on accident, I wouldn't be upset.

Just teasing you Joy..... And totally agree though - has to be when YOU want to, not when parents, friends etc. WANT it. I got the "marriage" treatment with Scotty from family (and friends/coworkers) for a good 3 years. It's not happening. We are happy with what we have, so if it's not broken, why try to fix it? I wouldn't trade anything for our friendship.

I wouldn't trade anything for our friendship.
I agree totally! I would imagine though, at the shower, you're gonna get hit up with all those questions!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Most coming to the shower are aware of our relationship. It's common knowledge that it's not going further than what it is. But yea it might come up. They will ask where he is and I'll say home packing for our trip to Florida

Seriously, this is not a good topic for me and my DH right now. When we were planning my surgery, after the surgery I started on this medication that I was gonna be on for 6 months, and then after the 6 months was over (in March), we thought we would start trying in the summer after we moved into the house.....well........now that the surgery is over, I changed my mind. I'm sooooo not ready. There's too much to do, and I'm pretty selfish when it comes to my time. I told him that I think I would be happy with not having them....and yeah, that didn't go over well. He would NEVER push me, but he really wants them and I think he would be a ROCKIN dad. I just think I would be a sucky mom.

Keep in mind, I am an only child, no brothers or sisters, and I'm so used to being by myself and doing what I want. I'm struggling as it is with balancing things out with my DH, b/c remember my ex was never around due to his drinking, etc, so when I was older with him, I was still used to doing whatever I wanted.

So there's your long answer, lol, but in short, NO TIME SOON. But if it were to happen on accident, I wouldn't be upset.

Don't sell yourself short! My DD was an only child. Spoiled then AND now. She is a terrific mom. You'll know when you're ready.

Enjoy that stuff as it progresses in a 'proper' and functional fashion.

I've been an aunt for ten years - and that's just the brood that he's officially biologically linked to.
My kid brother ( 27 to my 32 ) started early ( which is being generous! ) - my nephews are 10, 9 and 4, and my niece is 8 1/2.
Makes holiday shopping a nightmare.
Due to drama with the mamas ( and yes, there are four mothers involved there ), I only see the younger two, and consistently shop for and spoil them.

I have sibs, but was raised like an only child ( bro lived with mom, sis with our father, and me with neither one ). Getting acclimated to the idea of having children takes a lot or processing.
I was the fun 'aunt' to my friends' children, and never had any intention of having any of my own.
Now I wouldn't trade it for anything.

You'll know when you're ready, and in the meantime, travel, spend and splurge while you can, because that play money gets swallowed up quickly on diapers and formula.
