Sometimes I feel like Im the only one who remembers that Bristol ever existed. When we were pregnant with lil D my MIL made the comment on numerous occasions, "Just wait until you have to go through delivery, that will really hurt." Each time she was corrected that I had already been through a vaginal delivery. and though our baby wasn't full term, it hurt like hell. Well, earlier this week a "friend" of DH posted on FB that his wife was going to be induced on Friday. DH commented that he hoped it was smooth and didn't take as long as our 48 hour induction. To which he was meet with the following comment, "It can take longer for first time moms when they are induced," from his friends wife. Really??? I mean I know you are a conceited SOB that I have never liked in my entire life, but considering you were a best man at our wedding (we had 2) you should be more conscientious about your comments. Ohh, it still has me pissed off.
Plus, Im pretty certain that Im the only one who remembers that her EDD is coming up. May 31st our first born was supposed to make her glorious entry into this world. Instead the day makes me want to curl up in a ball and cry. She should be turning one a week from today...plunging her open palms into chocolate birthday cake and making a glorified mess with a big grin on her face!!!
It's really weird because I am as happy as I have ever been with our rainbow baby but at the same time, Im as sad as ever because I miss Bristol. I don't think any truer words have been spoken....
"The beauty of a rainbow does not negate the ravages of the storm. When a rainbow appears, it doesn’t mean the storm never happened or that the family is not still dealing with its aftermath. What it means is that something beautiful and full of light has appeared in the midst of the darkness and clouds."
