I get worried about having boys! I would have no idea what to do with a boy, I never grew up with boys and they seem so smelly! Lol
I had never thought about the "waiting" concept, but HOMS you are completely right! We are all waiting! I'm not a fan of being in a holding pattern, I'm just doing a count down to the TTC prep because that's closer than actually TTC and that's keeping me a little sane at the moment.
Wow your MIL sounds really insensitive! I have found some older people think the modern way of parenting is a little crazy and overboard but times have changed and they need to get with the program.
I hope the rest of your week is great!
