Would this be appropriate to post on facebook?? I think not.

DH's sister in law put, Kudos to Lane Bryant. They have 30% off for teachers. She said, my daughter (name) needs clothes for her new teaching job.

Yeah that's a pretty crappy dig to put on facebook.

Quoting atlmom2:

It is all plus size.


Quoting mumsy2three:

Is Lane Bryant only for larger sizes still? I'm asking b/c we have a Lane Bryant store at our outlet shoppes and I thought they had woman's sizes on one side of the store and plus sizes on the other. I might be thinking about the store that used to be there Casual Corner, anyway~  I think that's a mean spirited post. I wouldn't call my dd out on her weight especially if she was on the heavy side.

OK..  I like to see things in a more positive light.. Maybe mom was proud of her DD's new teaching job and just wanted to express it? It looks to me like the focus was on the wrong part of the statement and could have been turned around into something more positive by DD saying "thanks Mom. This new job is going to be great for me!"

If that was the case she could have never mentioned Lane bryant, rather her dd was going clothes shopping. She already put plenty of posts about her getting hired already.

Ah, I understand. My mom did that crap to me all the time. I found the only way I could defeat her was to turn her dig into something positive and deflate her passive-agressiveness. Having a crazy, negative mom has actually made me a more positive person in that respect. It was the only way I could one-up her. Your niece needs to shift her way of looking at things and use her mom's words to her own advantage.

I can tell you this SIL is negative in every sense of the word. Can tell you a million stories.

I see nothing wrong with it.

That's so sad to hear. I could write a book myself that would make Mommy Dearest look like a Disney movie. I hate that parents can do that to children. Then they play that Woe is me game when their children walk out of their lives. Give your niece my best. *HUGS*

Has she tried to get help for the stress?  Does she live close to you so you can help her out?

Quoting atlmom2:

Her mom is her same size so I guess maybe she is clueless to her daughters feelings.
Of course she is self concious. Who wouldn't be at 4 ft 10 and way over 200lbs. She has gained 50 or so in the last year. Stress related eating.

Quoting MrsBLB:

I can see both sides of it.  If her mom was aware that it would bother her dd, I don't understand why she would put it out there.  On the other hand, I'm wondering why dd was bothered by it.  Is she self concious about her weight?
