Posted by   + Show Post

I hated that stuff..

Breaking my balls... or as my step mom politely put it "Usurping your parental authority" my effing MIL STILL does this shit. It drives me absolutely bananas.

If I say NO, the answer is NO.  Or like one of my kids will do something wrong and while I'm reprimanding them my idiot MIL is over there going "UH-oh!!! UUHHHHH-OHHHH!! Mom means it this time!" STFU already or you're next.  ERGH.

I don't care if you let your kids roll around in the mud, eat candy for dinner, and stay up until midnight, my kids don't do that.  So as Cartman would put it 'RESPECT MY AUTHORITAH!!!"


When they were little it bugged the heck out of me when people called my girls, boys. HE's SO cute. Yes SHE sure is. And I mean my kids were in PINK, pig tails, headbands, flowers, etc. They were obviously girls.

And when people ask if they're twins (still happens) nope! 2.5 yrs apart, my oldest is at least 6" taller and they don't even look alike.  It's because I dress them similarly, I do that so I can keep track of them easier. And because I'm lazy so when I buy clothes I go "Oh that's cute" and grab one medium, one large.

When my oldest was 3 months old I started babysitting this girl who was 5 months old. My daughter was tiny with darker skin and dark hair. This girl was twice her size and a toe head with around face. People would ask me of they were twins. I never assume relationships because if that.

Quoting jconney80:

I know this is different but it drives me crazy when people ask if my youngest kids are twins. They're almost 2 years apart and obviously there is a 9 inch height difference LMBO. People are nutso

I hated the pacie thing too. I love my fil but he was the worst and he made me feel guilty.

I hated the potty training comments too. Once I was changing my not quite 2 yo in a public restroom and some old lady had to give me a lecture.

Oh! How about assuming abuse. He was older than a toddler but when my son first started martial arts he was 8. He had been sucking on his upper lip and it was red all the way up to his nose. His instructor confronted me about it and then told me it wasn't possible for the upper lip to get chapped, only the lower. I was really ticked. I couldn't stand the guy for a long time. But now I love him to death so it worked out :) and I'm pretty sure he no longer thinks I made my son get a chapped lip.

My granddaughter is almost deaf, but functions well. She also has an Asian appearance. Sometimes she would not hear something, so would not respond. People would ask if she spoke English.

they fuss at me about discapling them even though if I were tohave done it as a child I would get spanked and sent in my room for the rest of the day (and I'm talking about my mom and grandma who would punish me)
