For example, its a no children allowed, destination wedding. They have hired babysitters which is thoughtful, but one of the moms has a young, exclusively nursing babe. They said she could bring the baby, but without telling her they hired a sitter to hold the baby in another room for the ceremony. The mom still doesnt know. Yeah, no way I would leave my four month old with a stranger. Anyway, rant over.

OMGosh. Seriously? And they didn't tell the mama?!
No flippin' way would I be going along with that. No way, no how. That is really rude and horrid of them to just do all that without parents' input.

Gosh. Man, this really makes me angry. Honestly. :yuck:
You said it's a destination wedding - I assume that means the guests had to pay for getting there and whatnot? If I was this other mama, and they tried to force me into this sh!t with the sitter and baby, I'd be sending them a nice bill for a weekend wasted.

Sorry :hide: Seriously. ANGRY!

My strongest cravings were with my third, and I ate salt and vinegar Kettle brand potato chips like crazy! I paced myself to half a bag a day! I could have easily eaten a whole bag a day! I don't even like potato chips usually.

:yummy: I stinkin' love those chips. Make my mouth raw as heck, but I love 'em!

we had a five pound baby at our wedding she was 3 months old but was a 28weeker. and let me tell you i found out she was on her way about 1 minute before i walked down the aisle and i started balling! we could not have been happier that she was there! we had several children at our wedding and wouldnt have had it any other way! i just dont understand how someone could do that to a mother, especially one that traveled to a destination wedding to be there! i would have taken my baby and left, no matter who it was!!!!! i hope she stuck up for herself! ugh people are irritating lol

Tomorrow morning is my 2nd midwife appointment! Very excited! We told our friends this past weekend and most everyone was really excited, some people didn't say anything and only 1 comment about how we already have a boy and a girl and why are we starting over. We had pictures taken yesterday and did get some cute shots with the kids hugging my belly :wub:
It's a short week for me, I'm a school nurse and work M/W/F but theres no school Thursday or Friday, so long weekend! Can't wait! :goodvibes:

I really struggled with the "perfect family" comments when I was pregnant with my daughter. I know I was a bit hormonal, but I really wanted to rip everyone's head off that assumed we were done because we had a boy and a girl. I'm excited to have our tiebreaker. Glad to hear most everyone was supportive and YEAH for a long weekend.

why do people assume that just because you have one of each then you are done?!?! GGRRR how ignorant! we get the Duggar comments when people ask how many we are going to have, because our response is "that's up to God" or "as many as God will give us" then with out fail comes the "are you going to be like the Duggars and have like a 100 kids?" comments or something to that effect. gets old but ya know what i would be honored if God saw fit to bless us with that many children! call me crazy I dont care! lol I dont care what anyone else does so why do people care so much what I do??? ok getting down off soap box now! lol

I feel the same! I was a little disappointed that there were only a handful of kids besides mine at my wedding! Of all the wedding pictures my favorite are of our first dance when my stepson joined us, and a picture of my boys playing in the middle of the dance floor together. We purposely had a casual barbeque style wedding at a campground so that it was more kid friendly.
Maybe if we hadn't had kids yet my mind set would have been different though.

12 weeks! This is hopefully the last week that I feel like an invalid! I'm starting to go stir crazy being stuck in the house, but I'm too nauseous to go anywhere.
