Do you have any pets? If so – start sending LOADS of cute pet pics. Every time she does on and on gush about Fluffy s or Fido’s newest trick. Of course you could use the bumper sticker I gave my niece that says – I Love Kids! They’re delicious!

Those people drive me nuts! I always want to ask what they did before kids. Like, did you just sit in an empty room not ever doing/seeing/thinking anything? Probably not, so why don’t you try thinking about something other than kids now.

Anyway, I highly recommend the website stfuparentsblog.com It’s a delightful mockery of parents like that. Not anti-kid, just anti-overshare. You are not alone. 🙂

@orchidaloha:  My mom and dad are so seriously anti-kid that whenever someone brags to them about their grandkids or wants to show them pictures, they will seriously say, “Don’t show me,” or “Who cares?” They have been this way for as long as I can remember! LOL

@trueblue14:  OMG what a good idea.

@orchidaloha:  lol.  I spend my life trying not to be “that mom”.  Those women are crazy.  I think it’s out of the norm.  I have plenty of thoughts outside of my children.  I also have makeup, nice clothes, get my hair done, and drive a nice car.  The world doesn’t end when reproduce, people!

@mimi123:  lmao.. your parents are awesome.  I don’t mind looking a pic of someone’s kid, but if I get stuck with a woman pulling one of those photo flipbooks out of her purse, I know I need to come up with an excuse to get out of there — pronto.

Ha, my FSIL is like this. She also very rarely lets the kid out of arm’s length of her. When she does, it’s ALWAYS with her parents and NEVER with FI’s parents. We had to hear lots of “Oh, we’re so excited to put him in a tux and have him carry the rings, but they should be fake because you never know!” I was like, “Uh, yeah, he’s not going to be in the wedding.” They were SHOCKED. Like, really? They had a childfree wedding, and they’re surprised that we don’t want their little angel that we barely know because they keep him from us in our wedding? LOL

I don’t understand people like this.  Kids are great.  They may even be the most important thing in your life.  But they’re not the only thing.

A friend who was recently married, her sister just had a baby a few months ago.  Whenever the sister was around, it was ALL about the baby.  Great.  It’s a baby.  Now why don’t you help your sister out with a wedding that she changed the date for just so you could come?  What do you mean, you never planned the bachelorette party like you said you would?  You didn’t realize as a MOH you would have to make a speech?  And you missed half the reception (including the part where you actually play a part in entering before the bride and groom) because his dad/your husband INSISTED you feed him right then and there instead of waiting 5 minutes.  That, and you didn’t help set up or tear down, and you were late to not only the rehearsal, but the wedding too.

Really, they were all insignificant things, and I understand the baby and breastfeeding is important (though she has used a pump before, so not sure why that wasn’t a possibility) and it’s just a wedding, but all of it added together…  Doesn’t seem very sisterly.
