Cat’s Out of the Bag Now!

So I’ve been keeping in a big secret for a while now and stupid me just remembered…hey, I have a blog my family doesn’t know about! Duh! However, none of that matters anymore because the family was told today. Now I can spill the beans! Sort of…they can’t know that I’ve known for ever! Keeping up here? Ha, I’m just so excited!!! But first, a little back story…

Both sides of my family are very religious!! And Catholic at that! The grandparents refuse to believe that sex before marriage happens…even though it’s been going on since before they were born…it happens! Well, recently my step cousin and his girlfriend had a kid (out of wedlock…OMG!) and surprisingly my grandma was ok with this!! This is on my mom’s side of the family. It’s not technically her grandkid, but she didn’t start telling everyone how wrong that is and God will punish them…she just kind of accepted it! Crazy!! The world really is coming to and end! Ha!

Long story short, my aunt loves being a grandma! Spoils the kid and everything! And it was recently that I got to thinking…there is an age gap relationship in the family already!! Though not as big. My aunt and uncle are 10 years apart. He has two kids from previous marriage and the youngest just had a kid, so she’s a 39 year old grandma. That brought on more thinking…my older man is a grandpa. His oldest had a child, there for when we get married does that mean I’m a grandma?! I don’t think we’ll look at it like that, but society will. I’ll be a very young grandma for sure! lol

On with my story…on my dad’s side his mom is even worse! Extremely religious! Well, let’s just say my cousin is pregnant and after 5 months finally got the courage to tell grandma and the rest of the family!! Father of the child is not in the picture, he refuses to believe it’s his (can’t deny it with the test) and ran off with her best friend and all kinds of bad stuff, none of which they told grandma, just told her she’s pregnant with a girl and shockingly…grandma is excited!! This world works in mysterious ways!!

So now we wait and see how long it takes till the whole family finds out! I’m so excited!! Kind of sad for her and the kid and the situation, but so excited!! It’s a girl too! I told my cousin to name her after me since she wants a unique name! Ha! She like my name but wants to name her Layton which is cute and I like. In August a new member of the family will join us! Mama and baby are healthy and doing good. : ) Congrats little cuz!

To be honest…I totally expected one of the other two cousins to get pregnant first…at 14 they have iPhones and spend every weekend drinking and partying…I wouldn’t be surprised if they were and it’s been taken care of and kept secret. I think that’s bad parenting, but that’s not what this post is about. Well, we shall see how things go in the recent months to come but I know my sister is going to be pissed because her wedding is in October and this steals her thunder…more family feuds to come.

  1. So you did tell your family about your age gap in your relationship? Good for you. I think about this all the time. If I do move forward with my relationship, how it will look to people we know and don’t know. There’s such stigma around the young/old relationship which I hate! Good luck with the family 🙂

    • I haven’t told them yet, but I think it’ll be easier to say something now. I totally agree!! I hate that age changes peoples opinion when it comes to relationships. I don’t care too much what the people that don’t know me say…in fact we have fun with that! But when it comes to the family and people I know it’s a bit more difficult. I really hope they are all ok with it! Let me know what happens if you decide to move forward with your relationship!

      • Good luck! I think if you go in with confidence and explain how you both love each other that it should help. I hope everything goes well.
