At the moment my son Cash watches “Hotel Transylvania 2” non-stop. It is his favourite movie!
And when I watched the scene where the girl in bat form tells her vampire dad (also in bat form) that she is pregnant, he is over the moon and automatically think:
That’s how parents should always react! No matter what, they should be happy and supportive!
I know the movie is a silly comparison but still cute.
Some of you might read my post, why I hid my third pregnancy from everyone especially my mother.
Of all people, my mother should have been the happiest but instead it went like this:
- The first time we barely spoke, because we didn’t get along very well back then and when we finally did, I still didn’t hear her say, how excited or happy she is for me!
- The second time I told her I was pregnant again, she asked if I wanted to keep “it”!
- The third time I told her only 2 month before I was due and again, no words of happiness or support!
- The fourth time I told her when I was 4 month gone and she simply said “if that is what you want…?”
Did I miss something here? Or am I too picky? Or am I just too hard with her? I mean, I shouldn’t tell my own mother to be happy for me, should I?
All I know is, when one of my children comes home pregnant or got someone pregnant, I will be happy and supportive.
Of course if they come home pregnant under aged, or because they have forgotten any type of precaution, or even worse, can’t remember who the babies father is, they will get an ear full. I will most likely loose my temper….BUT…after that I will hug them, tell them everything will be alright and that I am happy, very happy to welcome my grandchild!
That’s how it should be! OK, maybe without the shouting, but the shouting and threats might work for the next time they decide to have some fun in the bed department!
