Aunt Natalie

Soooo my brother and his wife are FINALLY having a kid! :-D I am soooooo excited! That kid is going to be spoiled rotten! ;-) I told my brother, "I just have one thing to say to you...that kid had better be cute, because if it isn't I can't look at it" I am such a sweet sister ;-) He responds with something like he got all the looks in the family...which I of course have to argue..."No...you are the first born. Everyone knows that the first one is always a screw up...the perfection comes when the baby of the family is born" haha...

I was chatting with my mom and asking her if she was excited about it and she said, "yes...but you can't have one yet" O_O WTF?? Like I want one right now.

1. I am not married
2. I am not financially stable
3. I am only 25

So yeah...I don't think so. Then she proceeds to tell me that I can have one in 5 years...HAHAHAHHAA I told her I was thinking more like 10? Then she said, "No...you will have one in 5...you will be ready then. Then have another one in two years...then another one after another 2 years..." Uh... what the hell??? Am I a baby-maker? I told her, I was thinking...one or two children...not three. How the hell am I going to have three???? Kids are expensive! I know my mom would spoil the crap out of them...but yeah, no.

She disagreed and said I should have at least three because she said so... O_O HAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHA I held in my laughter...and told her, "ok mom..."

She then reminded me...to never forget that I need to look after myself first and I need to be happy. Never let a man take advantage of me...always be financially independent from him...and though a relationship is give and take I shouldn't be doing all the giving. :-) I love my mom

Congrats on being an aunt-to-be!

Ah yes, the pressure to squeeze out children. I still get little comments from my Dad reminding me that I'm not getting any younger if I'm planning on having kids. So you see, guys get it as well. Just smile and change the subject to your future niece/nephew.

Thanks!

I am so excited about it. People are reminding me that it isn't me having the kid...I smile and tell them, "Thank God..."
