I am so sick of hearing people tell me, "You should have your babies on XYZ date because my mom/brother/cousin-twice-removed has their birthday/anniversary/graduation on that day!"
What makes anyone think that I am going to hold these babies in my body for a longer/shorter amount of time just because it is what THEY want?? It is frustrating that my parents anniversary, my cousin's birthday, and my father in law's birthday are all around the time that the twins will be born. Everyone is saying what a gift it will be for them if they are born on their special day. But my point of view--they are already having to share a birthday with each other. I want a day that is just for them, not a day where someone sits and gloats that they get them on their day. It is not a competition!
Sorry. Just needed to get that out of my system... :)
