Sounds like you have a pretty amazing friend...I would suggest getting her a special gift to give her at the baby shower for being so amazing.....then she will realize that you have appreciated all her hard work....and time...(just a little way to say thank you!)View Thread
So we gave out our Xmas cards yesterday, I left the decision up to my DH and he wanted to. We got a lot of great responses. The only one I was taking back by was my mil....she knew b4 we handed them out 'cause we told her when we heard the heart beat, but when I was talking to her about whether or not I am going to do a c-section or not, which I am leaning towards a vback, she says...well why don't you have a c-section and get fixed at the same time.....i was just floored....then her sister says....tell her you'll get fixed when she gets married (she has been with her "boyfriend" for 25 years)....which felt good to have someone lighten that situation because I had no idea what to respond to her with. lol. oh....family! I know she didn't mean it to be hurtful but i was just surprised....View Thread
Thanks ladies....still not sure what we are going to do...the only bad thing about giving them the cards tomorrow is that my husband is only going to be there for forty-five minutes because he has to work & it is his family...I just don't want it to be like guess what we're expecting....now off to work....View Thread
So I got our xmas cards all done and ready to be mailed....which is how we are telling the family (aunts, uncles, grandparents, friends.....(that don't know yet) ) the news. I have an ornament as a card that says
Christmas cards: 13.99 Family photos: 29.99 Realizing there are 4 in the Picture: Priceless
then on the opposite side, there is a picture of my DH, DD, and me. (we also included a newsletter just in case they didn't catch on.
So my question is how early is too early to send out Xmas cards? Can I send them the day after Thanksgiving or should I wait till December? Also we do have Thanksgiving on my DH side and I threw around the idea of handing them their cards....than I thought it may be tacky...idk, what do you ladies think. I just have a feeling that the news is going to get out that day or they will suspect it.....View Thread
