the only ones

Saturday we are going to a couples baby shower for a good friend.  I know we’ll be one of the only couples without child.  I’m not sure if all the babies are going as well, I wouldn’t think so.  I also know there will be tons of: “When are you going to joining the parent squad?” or “Have you even been trying to have a baby?”

I’m dreading it for that reason only.  It’s at 6pm, so I’m assuming there will be drinks.  I can’t wait to see some of my friends that I haven’t seen for a while.  But at the same time, I know there are some newly pregnant ones that get knocked up by will. 

Lord give me the strength…. or a stiff drink.

  1. Oh I hope there will be drinks! We are often the only ones without a baby at friend get togethers now…and it sucks. I hate the ‘when are you going to have a baby’ shit. I hope it isn’t so bad…and that they have good booze. Maybe bring a flask just in case. 😉

  2. I wish you lots of strength. But you already have it. You are brave enough to go. I wouldn’t even try to attend. I’ve been avoiding all friends with babies for about 6 months now. We got invited to a “baby friendly” picnic tomorrow and I’m currently trying to come up with an excuse to ditch.

    So more power to you. And just incase you don’t want to carry a flask, you could always pre-load. That way you’ll be prepared for anything the “fertiles” throw at you. Wait! Maybe I just came up with how I can start dealing with our fertile friends….
