I have some friends here that are 20 years younger than my hubby and I. I used to work with her when she was in High School. Anyway, when she went into labor with their first child, Dh and I took her BF to the hospital and sat and waited for the baby to get here. It was the first time I had been on that side of the nursery window waiting for the birth of a child. I was almost as proud as the grandparents. When she went back to work after 3 weeks, she brought the baby over to me to babysit and that continued on until she was 1 and my friend had to take time off to have another baby, then I watched both of them until she lost her job recently. Those girls are now 2 and 3 years old. They come visit, I have been there for a lot of their firsts (rolling over, sitting up, walking, teething, etc) they love on me when they come visit, make themselves at home, and recently, they both told me their baby blankets I had crocheted for them were too small, we need new ones Mimi, pweeeeze. So, for their birthdays, I made them each new blankets. Now comes the difficult part of the situation. I also have a niece who had her kids at around the same time. We took her to the hospital when she was in labor and I brought them home from the hospital, she really never brings the kids over, they don't know us like they should and shy away when they are here. When my niece saw that I had made blankets for the other two, she tells me that all her daughter can talk about is having a new blanket because she's too big for hers too. Honestly, I've never heard my great niece talk, I am making one for her, but am a little irked at the way my niece is behaving, she can't just say, "would you mind making one for my girls too?". Maybe it's just me, that's why I'm asking if I'm getting irked over nothing. Any suggestions???
