I've mentioned that my mom is in town for a visit. Despite my attempts to cover up our IUI and the meds, it was a great visit. I don't think she had any clue and she even managed to not ask any questions about our IF! That might be a first for her. There was actually even a time when I was thinking of bringing it up. We were talking about how she does a lot to support my older sister financially and that sometimes she feels like she should treat more equal. But then she said that she feels like my sister and her family needs more financial support. That is generally true and I don't begrudge the helps she gives them (she did help me get through college). But I almost told her about our need to save money for treatments and how much they cost.
I also had another situation when someone assumed my niece was my daughter. This time it was my older niece. DH, my mom, her partner, and I took my 4 nieces and nephews to a corn maze and fall fest type thing. My sister and BIL were both working. The woman selling the tickets told me that my niece was really beautiful in a way that made it clear she thought I was the mother. I had another wistful moment about that.
