Excuse me while I get my grumble on

When you ask the parents of a newborn if you can come by and meet the baby, please, come by and meet the baby.

Because even if I don't clean my house from top to bottom, I do make an effort to tidy it for you.

I do either bake something or go buy something to make sure I don't welcome you empty-handed.

And you know what else? I miss out on my nap.

I am tired and I have hormone things going on as I recover from 9 months of pregnancy and the whole rollercoaster of giving birth.  So maybe I'm a little bit sensitive here. But seriously. If you say you are coming:  Come.

(Twice now, we've had no shows. Once, the people just seemingly forgot.  The second time, the couple did call to cancel 30 min before they were supposed to show.)

::HUGS:: Having company is disruptive even at the best of times. Much more so with a new baby.

How are you all doing/feeling?

Disruptive, yeah.

We are tired. :P As I think you gathered. ;) And I'm getting some kind of chest/respiratory ick. Junebug has a cough and runny nose, but J, Sprout, and Ti'Loup seem fine. Thanks for asking.

Gosh yeah :( Terrible that you went to that trouble only to have them not show up!

I hereby decree that you mustn't do *anything* for guests. They must come over with the idea of cleaning up and bringing food and generally helping *you* out. They should make you restorative teas and offer to watch the bigger two while you and Ti'Loup sleep.
