Vacation is Over

It's been a few weeks since I've posted. I went back home to South Carolina for my nephew's graduation. Man, these kids grow up fast. I was sooo happy to see my two beautiful new nephews and new cousins. I miss them so much. I'm officially the only married female in the family with no kids. So as you can imagine, I spent the first part of my vacation answering the "What are you waiting for questions." I can't even count how many times I answered that in one day.

I don't even get upset anymore. Although I'm still trying, there is no reason to add more stress by getting upset. They don't know and if they did, they probably wouldn't mention it. Giving the benefit of doubt is best, besides unless you want to divulge your situation, you just smile and politely say something else. I love to tell people that I'm waiting on them to do something that I know they are not willing or able to do, ex. have more kids (older women). That usually ends the conversation in a joking manner and I keep my business to myself.

I'm fortunate to have a wonderful MIL who hardly mentions it even though I know she's longing for a grandchild. I'm her only hope right now--lucky her huh. Funny I don't even get upset when she does mention it. We had a short conversation shortly after my nephew was born and I think she got a little clue. She asked if I wanted kids and I said yes and then she asked if my husband wanted them and I said yes. She then said "Ok, then whatever happens happens." Really appreciate that--no meddling and no further questions. Too cool.
