Congrats! I hope it was worth the wait…

 

So have you set a date? LMAO.

 

Just wait until after you are married and they want to know when you’re going to have kids!

Arrrrgh.  Why are people so rude?  Fiance and I weren’t even engaged when people started asking the question about kids.  He has two already (their mom is not in the picture), but everyone seems to feel the need to tell me that we’re still young, we could have "our own."  I have started giving the question the answer it deserves, which is a rather cold "Well you see, it seems to us that we already have two." 

The fact is, with the possible exception of very good friends and family (who get to ask once or twice, but certainly not every week) it’s nobody’s business but yours!  Sometimes you just have to tell people, politely, that you don’t care to discuss it.  It’s too bad that you have to practically be rude to get people to be respectful, but sometimes you do.
