I could also add my father to the list.
DH and I wont share the name we picked out b/c I dont want to hear my parents complain about the choice me made. Doesnt matter what the name is, they will complain. In fact, my mother started off a convo this morning with "I heard a stupid name today that started with 'D', does the baby's name start with a 'D'"? It does but Im not telling her.
I love my parents b/c they are my parents but THANK GOODNESS we live in difft states. My mom plans on coming up when the baby arrives but my father "may not be able to take off work". UMMMM... hes own his own company and has other people (including my older bro) that work for him. We live 7 hrs apart by car, its not that far when talking about visiting your first grandchild. I asked her if she just wanted me to take picture of the baby and text it to him.
I think my mom thought she was being funny but then realized she was hurting my feeling. At one point, she explained that my father couldnt take off work for the same reason he couldnt make a wedding across country. Personally, Im failing to the see the connection.
I have meeting in a few min. or I would have shut my office door and cried.
