small confession - I am slightly worried my MIL has gone over the edge shopping.
FIL told DH last night that MIL had bought "tons of clothes". I am 12 weeks. We dont know the sex (not sure if we want to find out). How many clothes could she have bought?!
She is a bit of a shopper, so I am not surprised. It is the first grandbaby on both sides, so I expect some excitement. And dh and I have been married a while and are 31, so I know they have been waiting a while...
My mom offered to buy us a crib (once we pick one out) and is starting a quilt. Which I think is a bit better of an outlet.
Oh well. If the OP were a little older, married longer, she would be more calm. You can't control other people, just your reaction to them.
