Last night FI and I went to his aunt's house for dinner. I didn't really want to go, but I did because I thought it would just be the three of us. Turns out, his grandparents were there too. So while we're eating his grandma starts in on me about how I have to eat healthy and exercise and blah blah blah.
I know all of this, but my doctor is not concerned about my eating habits, or my physical activity level. And then, we were talking about baby gear, and she starts again. Saying that we shouldn't buy anything, because we can't afford it, (last time I checked it was rude to talk about other peoples' finances) because we have to buy a new car and a house. Now, I fully agree that we need a new car, because FI's will not last another winter, but why exactly do we need to buy a house? And how is it any of her business whether we do or don't?
I understand that people want to buy things for the baby, but hello, it's MY baby. I want to buy stuff for him too. I also believe that it's the parent's responsibilty to provide their children with what they need.
Sorry for the novel, cookies for everyone.
