I understand completely.  I consider myself very lucky that at age 31, three of my grandparents are still living.  I want to take advantage of this, and have my babies soon.  We are currently trying, and that one of many factors in the timing.

caitlinc… I’m so sorry to hear about your husbands grandmother.

My husband lost his Father this past October and exactly two months later, we lost his Grandmother. His father was one of the greatest, most fascinating people I’ve ever met, and his grandmother was a firecracker until the very end. We miss them very much!

These events were the catalyst that made my husband want to “pull the goalie.” It’s very bittersweet. I wish your family well.

I feel your pain. All of our grandparents on both sides are already deceased so our future children will never know them. Because of this we are thinking of giving our children heirloom family names. I am also working on creating a nice large family tree and obtaining copies of family photos so that our children will have that connection to the past. I have baby fever BAD lol so I am trying to distract myself with these hobbies until my body cooperates (currently having fertility issues).

I think the term “pulling the goalie” originated from Mrs. Spring, but I was looking for the original post and couldn’t find it just now.  (Just wanted to give credit where it is due… and now I’ll feel horrible if it was actually someone else!)

Lol, I thought it came from EJS!  You can thank me for “baby rabies” though.  I’m always happy to take credit, though, so don’t feel bad, DG!

@ caitlanc – I think my grandfather passing away a couple months before our wedding increased our baby rabies, too.  Only my grandmother is left in both my husband’s and mine families, so we’re glad our baby will be able to her great-grandmother at least once.  We’re also using family names as middle names, to acknowledge our family members who are no longer with us.

I got the “baby rabies” the other day while we were visiting FI’s good friend. He’s got two little ones that are soo cute. We’re not even married yet, so it kinda sucks, but just as we were about to leave one of them had an “accident” and it made me remember exactly why I’m putting off having kids.

Yeah… I have it bad… and so does my Fiance.  He apparently looked up a Chinese date/star table that predicts if we have a boy or a girl.  He told me this after I was getting all googly eyed over some little girl easter dresses at Target last weekend.

Planning on “pulling the goalie” right after the wedding…  πŸ™‚

Ah, I think you are right Mrs. Spring.  You had baby rabies and she was discussing the goalie.   I love all the little phrases we have here!

About 2 weeks ago, we had a discussion about TTC and hubs said he was ready to “pull the goalie” this summer.  The phrase made me laugh, and then I remembered, we watched “Marley and Me” and that’s where we heard “pulling the goalie.”  I was surprised because I thought he was going to want to wait another year. 

I have held off since the wedding, but after our discussion, talk about baby fever.  Now I just can’t wait for the summer to get here!
