  • My question is why do you need something like that. I would think you would be happy with a kiss, the reward is having the baby. It is great if he wants to buy you flowers but if you ask for them it's like buying yourself flowers. What is the point if you have to ask.

  • Tell him if not you will bite his head j/k Say something like Did you see the flowers the girl next door got? They were so pretty, I guess to match her pretty baby. I don't know really just a sugestion?

  • its not the money or the item I want him to acknowlage the fact. he has big issues with this..
    After our son was born he freaked for 4 hours and left the hospital..

    I would love for him to get our son involved and have him "make" us something or a welcome home sign just something.. he doesnt do mothersday or birthdays so I dont know how to get him to do this AHHHHHH

  • I dunno, I kinda think its wrong to expect something in return for giving birth... you should be enjoying your baby and your family, but it sounds like you are more worried about material things (even if it is something that they made)

    I dunno, I guess to me it seems kind of selfish.
