My mom and dad and both of my brothers and their families were happy for us. My friends were happy. I called my niece (because baby will be REALLY close to her birthday)–and she was ecstatic (she loves K and will be 13 this year). However, my husband’s friends are kind of… odd.
We ended up at our drs appt and then went out to dinner with some of them. They were umm.. LESS than thrilled. Really.
It wasn’t ‘hey great, congratulations’ or anything like that.
No. At the end of the dinner the guy’s wife said “well I’m happy if you are, but I feel sorry for you”….
uh, really? I just smiled at her (she’s the one that came over to ‘visit’ and brought her computer and headphones and watched while she ignored her kids–and me. I take it that this last foray into motherhood was not a good one for her. She has a 10 yo and a 10 month old. I guess she’s not the maternal sort.
There was a single guy there and he said ‘I don’t think it’s a good idea and I’m not happy for you’… He hates kids apparently, but jeez. Way to uhh, make us feel like crap when we FIRST announce it, you hosers.
So glad my IRL friends and blog friends and family are so supportive. We announce it to our church this weekend!
