Christmas Cards

I was sitting down to write a bitter post about Christmas cards.

I just erased all of it because I didn't want to post it.

Basically what I was going to tell you was that I'm not sending out cards this year.

I was going to show you pictures of the cool cards we've gotten, but all I could think was that the first says "We're Having A Baby!", the second says "We Have A Baby!", and the third says "I AM A Baby!".

I wanted to post it , because it would be funny and I'd laugh, and hopefully you would too.

But the more I looked at it, the less funny I thought it was.

I was afraid I would come across that I don't want your Christmas cards with your photos on them, because I truly do. I love getting mail, and I love your children. I do.

I don't want to come across as a bitter woman who can't handle my own issues, because I can.

I want to see your baby belly photos, sonograms, baby showers, and baby photos. I like seeing your family pictures. I like reading your tweets about the baby, and what all is happening. (I don't want to see the birth though. Who in God's name decided THAT should be filmed?)

So I just want you to know, I love your Christmas cards, but I'm sorry, this year you won't be getting one from us.

But be warned, once we do have kids, your mailbox is going to be full

I wanted to post this though (I got permission). Eric & Michele sent out the cutest birth announcements I think I've ever seen. Isn't he adorable?

Do you send Christmas cards?
