Oh Lesley - that sucks that SIL was a jerk about the whole thing. She is just being totally selfish and her reaction and what she told her son was ridiculous and shows what kind of person she really is... You don't let her take away this exciting time from you!!! I'm not sure I would have handled it as classy as you did, so bravo to you for keeping your composure!!!!

Well that's... interesting... I hope she can get over herself and that she doesn't make your nephew see the baby as a problem. :(

How annoying, my step mother is the same way - she cannot stand to see others happy and she's such a witch with a b (don't want to get censored) all the time, it's actually draining to be around her for any length of time... I mean, my eyes can only roll so much before those muscles start hurting ;) lol

Good for you for NOT fueling her "episode" that's what I call it when my step mother gets going. You know she's craving the attention yet she doesn't have a clue.

ok, I just gotta add, these are some of my step mother's traits, is she the same???

- she cannot let someone talk without commenting
- her comments are always uncalled for
- her uncalled for comments are intended to piss someone off
- she is very absent minded, starting many things but always getting distracted and never finishing something... she can't even do dishes start to finish

there's way more, but I'm just curious if there's actually someone else out there that's like my step mother... scary thought!

Ughhhh...sorry you got that reaction from your sil. Some people just aren't happy unless they can make themselves or others miserable. So sad, indeed. Why in the world would she say that to her little boy? How mean and thoughtless? Doesn't she know that there's always plenty of love to

Yay for telling...but major boo to SIL! Seriously, who says something like that? What a killjoy. She's just mad because the love will be shared. SHARED not DIVIDED. Oye.

I'm so happy for you Lesley. So happy that your baby is thriving and you're at the point of telling people. Good luck with letting work know!

Well I liked your announcement method :) SIL is a jerk- who makes comments like that and upsets their own child? That was sweet of your dh to reassure him. Enjoy your baby & let her stew on her own :P
