My SIL called me a bad mom since I dont feed my kids organic

We were at the grocery store and she picked up some organic stuff...and tried to put some in my cart too... and I was "nah, we dont eat that stuff " and laughed.... She got mad and was like " WHAT?!? ... you dont give the kids organic?" and I said no, they dont like and I am not paying extra money for things we wont eat....... she got mad, said I am a bad mom, not being fair to my kids....and LEFT ME IN THE STORE....

Next time I see her I think i am going to bring up the fact that she SMOKES... with her kids int he same room for her.... no amount of organic crap is going going to save their lungs...

  • ROTFL You are not a bad mom and how very rude to just leave you in the store like that. Oh I would definitely tell her how she's not being fair to her kids by making them inhale her second hand cancer stick smoke. You're right lung tissue can't be saved. Nor can damage be reversed. Glad you were able to let it roll...for now.

  • just make it a running joke about how you cant be a good mom without organic -- btw you can still be the best mom ever and never have touched an organic leaf... yeah sounds like she is rationalizing the smoking thing... she smokes indoors? that is nuts!

  • Wow, she really needs to get a life - and look @ herself before she cuts others down.

    Btw. we don't eat organic either - unless its on sale....I think it's good food, I just also think the reg. foods are just fine :)

  • "we don't eat that stuff"? Why wouldn't someone like organic? It tastes the same or better (strawberries) than regular produce. I agree smoking is much worse than not eating organic.

  • I think she was horribly rude and should look at her smoking before criticizing you. I'm not sold on how great organic is either. You were nicer than a lot of moms would have been in the same situation. Good for you for being the bigger person.
