In response to bullet point #5 of my post below, I did in fact get the exact lecture # I thought I would when I talked to my MIL today. I had to bite my cheeks to keep from laughing. She did add a newer lecture though:

Lecture #2,343,653 - Always go with your motherly instincts. Don't ever second guess yourself. As a new mother you will tend to second guess what needs to be done for your baby, but you should always go with your gut.... blah blah blah... swine flu... blah blah blah....

Just for the record, I don't second guess my motherly instinct. I'm smarter than that. 99 times out of 100, my instincts are spot on, so I trust them with my life... literally.

Good times.

Hey Saige
When you've been married for a while I guess you can't help but know your MIL to that extent-that you do predict what they say! It's awesome that you can trust your instincts so much, I think instincts are so important and so many people just don't know how to use them properly! Anyway hopefully bub is fine-it's awful when they keep getting colds & other bugs, isn't it? Take care

Oh my goodness! How annoying! I love that you can peg exactly what she was going to say.

As for your other post, I love barbeque too! That lunch sounds wonderful and so worth the money.

I think it is perfectly wonderful that your worry instinct is gone. Treasure that!

Going to therapy will be a good thing, because this roller coaster of ttc is really crappy.

I wanted to let you know that your blog is beautiful, and I appreciate the privilege of viewing what I sense are often private conversations with yourself. I left an award for you over on my blog :)

I love how your BIL, I mean MIL always has some sort of advice to give you. I'm glad you can let it slide.
