Yup. I was right

I am cursed. I was right.
My sister in law had a baby boy this morning, after a flawless and beautiful 3 hour labor she had a perfect baby boy according to the stupid fucking email I received from the yet again insensitive mother of my husband. I know she’s proud but have the forethought not to incude me on that mass email. It made me bawl at work.

I hate life today.

She called Dave to tell him his sister had just had a baby boy and Dave’s first words out were " Oh no!" Her reaction of course was, "What do you mean oh no? That is not a standard reaction". He then said I am glad everyone is ok. He said the conversation for awkward very fast. At no point in that conversation did his mother acknowledge how hard this must for him, you know nearly one year after burrying his own son. sigh!!

β€œLife is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” β€” Albert Einstein. When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.

  1. Wow, your MIL gets a big huge giant FAIL on that one!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Your telling me.. and the husband and I faught b/c he called her back to apologize for his reaction, he felt bad, I said hell no you don’t, she will never learn. He did.

      • Opps ces moi. I forgot to sign it.

      • He APOLOGIZED? Oh no, he didn’t!
        Argh… poor guy, he must really have been shit on a lot in that family. (My sister is similar to his, so I understand that pretty well.)

      • I know….why???
        Oh you have no idea..or wait. you do πŸ™‚

      • Yeah, I’ve mostly gotten over that need to apologize, but my mom actually doesn’t worship my sister, so that’s a better thing in my family dynamic (my mom has a swing, where she feels my sis is “doing fine” and then swings back to “she’s the devil” the thing in my family is that I have to mediate between them a lot, which is FUCKED UP. I’m not the mother, but I get to play that a lot, with them. Which is one reason I live so far away!)

  2. Ugh.
    This the is the worst feeling…. not like we mean anyone any harm, but it’s SO hard to sit and watch perfect beginnings when ours sucked as much as anything could ever possibly suck.
    God, did is HAVE to be a boy???
    Cursing the universe with you.

  3. I’m so sorry she was so insensitive anc clueless, god that gets me so mad. *hugs*

  4. Some people just do not think. I’m so sorry.

  5. It is such a shame how insensitive people about what it feels like. I’ve read numerous situations like this and I also have dealt with this situation my self. I guess every one feels like we should just get over it and get on with our lives. It makes me so angry. ugh.

  6. i can’t imagine, i am SO glad keith’s sister was done having kids by the time we lost catti 😦 *hugs*

  7. I’m so sorry to hear your MIL was so insensitive. Some people just don’t think. *hugs*
