Punk Rock Parents: baby carriers

baby carriers

They seem to be everywhere we go. A tiny baby in a tiny baby carrier. Feels like every few days there is a baby announcement. We are getting baby shower invites left and right. I am really happy for these people. I am lucky to have my friends and family grow.

But.....

it is still a little bit like a knife to the heart. Over 3 years we have been trying for just one more kid. The Phi is a blessing, she is an amazing human and I know how lucky we are to have her

but.....

a part of me feels that our family just isn't finished yet. The PR Family is not yet complete.

Next week I go to the doctor to have the talk. The infertility talk.

  1. I am sorry hun. There are no words to make it feel any better because saying crap like "it'll happen when its time" isn't going to make it any easier and will make you want to shoot the person that said it. I DO hope it happens for you soon! Keep us posted!

  5. I am going through the same thing. It irks me to no end when people say things like, "You should be thankful for the one you do have." UMMMMM, step into someone else's shoes for a sec, okay? When your family does not feel complete and it's not happening for you, it feels like there is a piece missing.

    I am praying for you.
