1st communion yesterday

We went to DH's niece's first communion. The program listed 36 kids that were receiving for the first time. Of the 36 kids, there were 4 sets of twins and 1 set of trips!! Of course others in dH's family also noticed and mentioned it at dinner afterwards. The comment "what is in the water in that church"". I soooo wanted to scream but DH would have been mad. His SIL's family was also there and don't know about us etc and it would not be "appropriate" to discuss. I drank more wine instead and suffered thru all of them talking incessantly about their kids and school. Yuck...

I am now sitting in "women and infants" hospital waiting for my third boob u/s and surrounded by new baby balloons as I walked through the lobby. Torture!!

  • I'm sorry about Church. That totally sucks. And I'm sorry you're having a just-shoot-me-in-the-face (or as I like to call it, JSMITF) sort of day. Stay distracted if you can. Good luck with your third boob!  Maybe ask if they can just move it to your bust line. :)

  • Ugh.  I so feel for you.   I hate this time of year for many reasons, but first communioners and Mother's day top the list.  Our church makes such a big deal about both events. I made a promise to myself last year that I would be sure to skip church on those weekends in the future. 

    Sorry to hear that you aren't through the ultrasounds.  Hope everything shows up clear.

  • The damn 1st communicans were irritatingly cute at my nieces communion as well. My husband and I just sat there doing our family duty!! The worst part was that this weekend we were supposed to be at our ET....boo for cancelled cycles.

    We survived the church and then my sis says somthing about one of the mothers and how she is a B and then proceeds to say that this woman is "freakishly old" to have a 7 yr old....."she for sure is like 47 or somthing like that.......hmmmmm.

    It was then about time to go home!!!!!
