So, we are back from our whirlwind trip to Pittsburgh. I wish that I had positive news to report, but no, the quick trip turned out unfornately exactly the way that I had aniticipated. Let me share a few of the lovely comments that I received from the in-laws...1.) " it's hard to lose a baby but its even worse to lose a child"...ok, what exactly does that one mean? 2. My mother-in-law informed me that she "could've had 10 kids if it weren't for her husband's low sperm count, so it's reverse for you guys, Chuck can have kids but you can't" 3.) "I'm always buying for everyone else's grandkids, because I don't have any" . Oh, and she refuses to call Lily by her name, she is just referred to as "the baby" and acted postively repulsed when shown a picture of Lily~ which of course pissed me off...all mommies think their baby is beautiful. Yeah, I'm pissed but I feel worse for my husband, who by nature is soft-hearted and is the most loving and nurturing soul that you could ever meet...and to see him receive little to no support from his parents is heartwrenching for me. Chuck's parents have actually been where we are...so, for them to be so distant is just puzzling. They are nice people, but obviously are just absouletly clueless.
