Strangest Christmas Gift Ever…

January 7, 2010

“You’re not getting any younger”… “You’ve been together for years!” … “You know your grandparents might not be around much longer”…”When will I be a grandmother/aunt/uncle/etc?”

Have you ever heard these sentiments from your family? Well, I have!  These are the comments and questions that surround me now that people have decided that it’s time for me to have a baby.

Yep, they have decided that it’s the right time for me.   Hmm, that doesn’t sound right.  With all the factors to consider when it comes to starting a family, isn’t it hard enough without the outside pressure of our nearest and dearest?

For instance, every Christmas, my dad gives me and my sister a special gift.  The gift is usually something special like a piece of jewelery.  So, imagine my excitement when I opened this year’s gift.  The box was small and slender.  It was wrapped beautifully.  I tore into it and pulled out a pregnancy test. Yes, that’s right–my father bought me a pregnancy test and then instructed me to go take it. Yikes!

How do you (or did you) deal with baby pressures? Should we just grin and bear it?

Hate it…
