Tomorrow, we have a 4th birthday party for MH's cousin's daughter. His other cousins with their kids will be there, along with lots of other people and their kids.
I have said that I'm definitely going, but now I'm wondering if that's the best idea. What if I get all hormonal and just suddenly burst into tears? It's happening less and less but even yesterday, MH and I were in the car and we had to wait for a family with 4 kids to cross the street on their bikes and before I knew it, "Are you f-ing kidding me? You need 4 kids, People? F-ing overachievers." had come out of my mouth-- with the windows open, full volume.
Yesterday, I was not yet safe for the public, to be sure. Intellectually, though, I feel like I'm actually okay today and have been having fewer emotional issues... But I've not seen any kids yet, either.
What would you do? Our 15 year old niece will be there-- and we're trying really hard to impress on her the importance of going to family functions (MH's mom is not great at that and she's the primary caregiver of our niece). It would look really lame if I didn't back up my words with action. It'll be at the beach, so I could always use my pale skin as an excuse to duck out early if I need to...
