My non-wine drinking inlaws now give us wine every time we go over for dinner.  I’m convinced it’s because they want to see if I’ll drink or not.  At a recent family function, Mother-In-Law grabbed the only baby in the room to hold and said something like, “I have to hold this baby because I have no grandchildren of my own yet”.  It’s very sweet, but we finally got them to stop bugging us about having kids, because it was making me crazy.  What if we did get preganant, and something awful happened?  Or what if we were having problems getting pregnant?  The pressure they were putting on us was making it worse, so finally DH had a chat with them and clued them in on the fact that we are trying.  That has shut them up (for now). 🙂

But maternity pants?  That’s not even funny.

My Father-In-Law was on the baby train, and even sat DH down to discuss “timing” to get a boy (I’m so glad I wasn’t there for that conversation) because Father-In-Law said that if he didn’t push DH to start a family, DH would never get around to it. How funny is that?!? Luckily, I was never on the receiving end of those conversations! And this isn’t the first grandbaby for Father-In-Law – DH’s sister has a little boy that’s only 16 months old.
