/trying out new fingerless gloves awww yeah they work
Also I told Saffy yesterday, but neglected to tell anyone else. My cousin (the good one, aka the one I like) is going to be having her second child! They don't know the gender yet, as it's still too early. But I must say, I was quite surprised to hear it!
Their first child, Merrick, was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes just a few months after he was born. It's been pretty stressful as a result, so hearing they're going to have another baby was a shock! A good one, but still. I'm pretty excited about it myself!
The only concern I have is something I share with my brother: With Merrick, his parents are so busy that they let his grandmother take care of him. And they rely on this system a lot, so much that Merrick's began calling his grandmother "mom", not that he knows what it means. But still, it's kind of an issue, and he's been kind of needy as a result of that plus all the spoiling he gets. He's had a hard time with school, sort of being off by himself and whatnot. I think he's getting better now that he's been there for a while, but yeah. I think he's a bit too dependent on the grandparents, and it's kind of vice-versa too. I just hope that when the second child comes along, it won't really be the same case.
Otherwise, I'm very happy about this! I love my cousin, and I'm glad she's trucking through despite the problems that came up.
Also, MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYONE! ♥ And if you don't celebrate it, HAPPY SUNDAY!
