You people make us smile.


Thank you so much for all your words of support and kind, generous words about Piglet.  You all (especially my lurker friends who were moved/upset enough to comment!!!  Thank you!!!) you made me feel so much better. 

Psssssssssht!  Oh WHAT?!   WHAT WAS THAT?!  I'll tell you what. That was the sound of our collective cans of whoop a$$ all opening in unison and raining down on Public Frenemy #1!  You guys are awesome.  I am so fortunate to have such supportive IRL and URL friends who are in my corner and love my Piglet.  

Because of you, I have re-thought what I had considered to be a powerless situation.  I now see that I have all the power - the power to extricate ourselves (myself and Piglet) from interactions with this person, the power to speak up the next time an insult is hurled in our direction

the

power

to 

simply

walk 

away. 


And MAN, it feels so good to have had this simple yet intense revelation.  Thank you again peeps.  You are amazing and wonderful and I see rainbows and bunnies whenever I think about how great you all are.  

PS - I also decided that I needed to stop thinking so much about this negative person and start focusing on the business of womb preparation.  T-minus two days until my first shot!

I'm sorry to hear about the trouble that you've had with that person in your life. Sometimes it is healthy to walk away...Piglet is gorgeous!

Just catching up.

First, Mr. Piglet is completely adorable, as in can't-look-at-his-picture-without-smiling cute, and heck, I've never even seen the real child in person. I'm sorry your "friend" is being awful. I wonder if she's aware of it (betting no). It sounds dreadful. And I'm glad you feel like you are empowered and have some choices. Ugh. Toxic people.

Second, congrats that you're about to start your your next cycle!!! Very exciting. I will be following along of course...and rooting for you every step of the way.

Love the sound of the woop ass opening! You have got the strength to walk away from this so called friend. Be strong! xx

Hi! Sorry I haven't said much lately! I am so freaking tired around here...

I am so glad this person's negativity is something you are letting go of a bit- that is so hard to do, and you are so tough, Mama!

HOOORAY for shots starting soon! All we Infertiles are twisted as we really look forward to injections, blood work and vaginal ultrasounds, but man, I am so excited for you!

hi there, just came across your blog. That sounds awful about this "friend". I've never experienced anything like this - why is she so critical of such a cute boy?
