Caroladybelle- first off hugs, and second- i hope you feel better getting that off your chest. I am so sorry others are sooooo oblivious. - what matters is the person that we raised- that we turned them into a productive member of society, as you did, and that you must be very proud. I cant stand it when these pg ones complain. Maybe they should be reminded to be thankful that they were even able to get pg, and not complain about it. If they cant do this or that, then guess what- get a Dr's excuse to go on leave. Otherwise, shut up. I know gals who have had to quit their jobs- maybe these ones should be reminded that that is an option, since they cant do anything but sign charts. If I had had the opportunity to get pg, I know I wouldnt have asked for special treatment.
I bet youre in the spot I am too- older parent- they are in their 20s and 30s. We wont see eye to eye anyway, hence when you get snubbed for trying to talk parenting experiences. How dare they even ask where you child came from-how insulting- thats none of their business and should not affect you being a "real "whatever. ugggh - so sorry.
Well, I hope their new babies keep them up all night, haha.Again, so sorry, and it sounds like you did a good job being a Mom.
