This weekend was SOOOO refreshing, I can't even put it into words. I was able to meet up IRL with some of my very favorite bloggers, and some of my very favorite people. It was simply perfect, I only wish it lasted longer :(
Then I came home, and I see my DH sitting on the couch with a sombre look on his face. He tells me to come sit down.
My SIL (the middle one) is pregnant.
And my reaction?
I haven't put this past her from the beginning. I'm honestly just surprised she didn't pull this sooner. Of course, she's expecting all kinds of attention, good and bad, because attention is what puts her back in the limelight where she wants to be. So I told DH, this is NOT something to get upset about due to jealousy. Rather, it's something we need to pray about for the child's sake- - being conceived and born out of wedlock and without a stable father figure is going to be a very sad situation for this poor baby. Not to mention how it will mess with our niece psychologically.
I have to thank all of you who were on the weekend for giving me a clear head and an open heart to think and feel with. Of course I'm slightly upset, and will remain slightly upset for a long time, most likely. BUT, I did not have the kind of reaction I would have expected had I heard the news before the weekend. DH had to pick his jaw up off the floor when I calmly told him that this was not a big deal!!
Anyway, I'd write more about this but a) I'm exhausted from 13 hrs of being in the car, and b) I don't want to give it anymore attention tonight!
