Thank you! We've not set a date yet. I think we will let the dust settle for a few days before we choose a date. I'm not sure how to take DD18. She just didn't talk to any of us and hid in her room. DD9 seems pretty excited and asked if she could call me Mom yet? It was a GREAT moment!!!!!

I'm actually not stressing too much about DD18. This is her MO. She still won't talk to me about all of this, but she did tell her Dad that she was happy for him. We think a lot of this is more about the fact that it's been 8 years and Mom's never changed. Our engagement I think just solitified that. DD9 was so sweet!! We're going to let the dust settle before we announce a date - not that we've set it at all, but we did talk about it for a couple of minutes yesterday so that's a good start. Besides. I can do a little planning without a date set. Like hunting for a dress!! ;0)

We've made lots of progress in one week. DD18 has come to both DF and I and told us each how happy she is for us. She told me she is scared that it will turn out like it did with her Mom. Very legit fear, but she's still talking dates with us and asking a couple of questions. So I'm feeling pretty good about it!! Thanks!!!!!

That's great news, Kristie! And, you're right - a very legitimate fear.
