Not my turn to be first

One of the perogatives of being the first-born is that you get to do everything first. You take it for granted. You're older, thus you hit all the milestones first. It seems like its just the natural order of the universe, especially in my case where I am almost four years older than my sibling. Well, that trend is over. Margaretis thirteen weeks pregnant.

It should come as no surprise to anyone that I have mixed feelings about this news. I love my sister, and I'm insanely proud of her and want her to be happy. I want her to have kids, preferably as many as she wants. It just seems a little unfair seeing as how I've been trying for so much longer.

I must say that Margaret was really tactful about breaking the news. She asked me about the latest on my situation and the surgery first. When she did tell me, I think my reaction was less than she was hoping for. I tried to be funny, but I think it came out wrong. She pointed out that I got to do a lot of things first, like go to college and get married. She's got a good point, I just hope it doesn't take me too much longer.

The baby is due January 12th. I need to start knitting again so I can make stuff for it.</lj-cut
