How do I deal with a nosy neighbor?

We live in a trailer park in South Dakota. There is this old lady who is constantly peering out her window at us. Once when I cought her, she just shook her head and kept staring!
She always comes over to say "Hi." More like take another tour of our tiny home. All the while she shakes her head. The other day, she asked Jake if "Mommy was good to him."
I told her to mind her own buisness...but she still won't. The other night when I was outside watching the boys play, nursing the twins, she came out and said "Well maybe it would have been better to have an abortion. I usually dont say this...but look at you." She waved a hand tword my life.
I cried so hard that night I thought I was going to drown myself. I love my life. And I would NEVER consider an abortion. I thought my life was getting on track. But after this old lady said that...I don't kow.
Maybe she is right and maybe I am a bad mother. Help? Please? :(

  • No you're not a bad mom, you shouldn't feel like that if you know you're doing all you can. She's an old hag who probably has no kids or they have disowned her. Next time she's peeking flip her off, or dig out a wedgie or something! In fact I'd march over there with my kids and ask her what she's see's or what is she thinking then tell her to F&%K Off.

  • Nope! Ignore her and don't let her in your house again. Or just tell her that you are happy and it's better than winding up a mean old bitch like her.

  • You have to stand up to people like that. Tell her that you could have never aborted such beautiful blessings and that your life is so fulfilling that you don't have to worry about what others are doing because unlike her you are happy.

  • *hugs* ignore her, and if she trys to come over again, don't let her. Its your life, not hers. And its obviously more full of love and care than hers ever was. You made the best choices for you, never let anyone else make you question them.

  • Tell her to STFU! That old woman is just miserable and crotchety! She needs a cat or something! I am sure you are a great mother! So just ignore her. And next time she tries to come over, tell her you are going to call the cops for trespassing. And if she tries talking to your son again you need to tell him it's not ok to talk to strangers. Because that's what she is, a stranger. I am sorry you are having to deal with this. I hope that she leaves you alone. Best of luck! **hugs** And if you ever need to talk to anyone, feel free to message me anytime! : o )

  • She is jealous of your beautiful family. I feel sad for her.

  • Not kidding, do what I did to some one who talked to me like that. Tell her to SHUT THE FUCK UP AND GO BE A MISERABLE OLD HAG SOMEWHERE ELSE!
