Our grandson joined the Marines a month ago, and was told he's leaving for boot camp the end of April. He got a call today that a kid who was to leave on Monday got hurt and can't go....so grandson is leaving in FOUR days!!! I haven't had time to prepare for this!

I totally expect my mil to go balls out crazy when her first grandbaby is born in November. She's an attention whore with zero boundaries. Bil has already had to yell at her for blabbing about the pregnancy before they were ready to announce it. His wife isn't even 12 weeks yet and she had a miscarriage over the summer, so they're naturally being a very slow to tell anyone. Mil thinks that it's okay to tell everyone because "it's MY grandbaby!" and already put it on fb. She's also talking about moving closer to them. It's gonna be real shit show.

There are grandparents that have a weird obsession with their grandchildren and think of the children as theirs and not the grandchild. I have know a lady that refers to herself as mom and tries to teach her grandchildren to call her mom. While that is the extreme end, I have encountered a few women that call the child/children "ours" or "mine" and think of the actual mother as nothing but a baby maker for her so they can have a do over baby.

In response to a confession. God I hope this isn't a thing now. My baby days are long over, but it irritated the ever loving shit out of me when my mom acted like my girls were HER kids. Um, no. They're not. It seriously caused me to greatly limit the amount of time she spent with them. Talk about overstepping your bounds.

I had friends telling me I should have a kid up until my late 40's! I seriously don't get people's need to tell you "you should have kids, you'd be such a great mom". Well, that's all good and dandy except for one small thing - I NEVER WANTED KIDS! I STILL DON'T! Why is that so weird for people to understand? I'd probably be a "great" accountant too, since I'm good with math. But I have no desire to be one so I never pursued that as a career. See? Same thing. Can you imagine being hounded to be an accountant even though you don't want to be one? It's just as weird.

Maybe some of you moms can enlighten me...why the heck do so many women brag about how skinny their kids are?? My own mother did that because my sister was so thin. It made my blood boil. It has to some sort of vicarious living through them or something. That's the only thing I can think of.

In response to a confession. On a similar note, I wish people would stop referring to pets as practice kids. DH and I are CF and we got a dog and a cat soon after we got married and had a house. Our pets are our pets--NOT substitute children. And we love that about them--they can stay home alone while we're at work, don't need to be bathed daily, can keep up with us on our long hikes, and the best part: they don't talk!

DGD2 fell down about half of our stairs yesterday. She was holding her dad's hand at the top of the staircase, she yanked her hand away and just sort of grabbed the railing and rolled forward. I was standing at the bottom of the stairs and saw the whole thing, and was able to catch her about halfway down. She wasn't hurt at all, just scared. You know who was more scared? ME! Oh man, that was the scariest thing that's happened in my life in a very long time. I freaked the fuck out. Internally. External cool, internal freak out. Meanwhile, I'll be buying a baby gate for the stairs for when she comes over.

i like animals, but sometimes i feel like the only childfree person in the world who doesn't care to own a pet.
