My husband and I are visiting out of town family and friends for the holidays. We spent Christmas with his family, and we will celebrate the new year with old friends. I am enjoying spending time with everyone, but, like most people, I only have so much emotional tolerance and energy for the long days of socializing and snacking.
By the way, …
…the food and treats of Christmas may have been exactly what I needed to start springing me out of this funk. Who knew?!
However, I was just not prepared for the many inquiries about our reproductive status.
From an aunt, after being told that it was time for us to go home: “Why? Is she pregnant?”
From a family friend: “So good to see you! Do you have news to share? … No? Not yet, then? Oh well.”
From another relative: “Adding to the family soon?”
The reality is that I would love to be able to say yes to all of them.
