pitty party

Seriously I'm not one to through a hissy fit and I hate hate hate drama, but I am seriously so ticked right now and this IS my journal so gotta vent.

Guess who is preggo??

No seriously, guess.

No, not me thanx for rubbing it in.

No, not Yvette duh, she's going to freakin' Syberia and'd be LUCKY to even have to WORRY about getting preggo but honestly, no offense but she's never even frenched I bet.

No, not Lynzii, well that I know of, we aren't really speaking right now {I'll tell you why later I'm to ticked right now to dish on everything.}

Ready. Sit down. Seriously, sit down.



Ruth, my boaring frump of a SIL.



Isn't that RUDE of her? I'm not even mad that she just told everyone "We're expecting" at dinner and didn't even announce it cute or creative. Honestly guys I'm just appauled at her insensitiveness of even getting preggy right now. Fine, I already have twins, and fine I just barly announced that I was stopping seeing what happened bc of how gross it would be to be so preggers in summer, but this means that she was trying when she knew fullwill that I was thinking about trying and that is just selfish.

Deep breath. It was probably just an accident. I'm sure she'd never dream of competing with you.

Bee said...

thats ok. She can be fat and miserable in August. Can you picture her sweating and complaining already!!? You my dear will glow when your preggo because you think about these things first.

The Knickerbockers said...

I don't think Ruth can get "preggy." I'm pretty sure only cute girls get preggers, preggo, etc. Ruth's probably referring to herself as 'with child'.

Ugh. Not cute at all.

whyimstillsingle said...

Can't believe she didn't ask you first!

kris said...

Oh, dear. Can't even tell you how many times I've heard similar "territorial" things about how someone stole someone else's thunder by getting married in the same month or having kids the same time. Bc everything YOU do, TAMN, prevents anyone else from doing it without you pouting.

I love Ruth.

More Ruth, please.

Marsh Mayhem said...

Hello? Perfect! Now when you announce your news next time, it'll TOTALLY take the wind out of her sail because everyone will be so excited for YOU! This is a GOOD thing!

Jean said...

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!! This is one of my favorites. :-)

labibi said...

I bet she takes your baby names too.

Trent!? said...

Haha! I love when you blog about Ruth.

TAMN, no need to panic. You're so different it's not even raining on the same parade. This is like if Angelina Jolie got mad that Emma Thompson was pregnant. Apples and oranges. Let her compete with her law/biz/med/dental classmates and let you compete with the wives club.

Everything will be fine.

April said...

Don't worry when she's all post-pardummy and sad you'll be preggo and glowing.

M & M said...

I just noticed that the ads are paying for "my daughter's and I's pedi's." Ha! Ha! Love it! This website is so great in every subtle way.

Liv said...

um, duh you'll totes steal back the spotlight when you get preggers at the right time of year with another set of perfect multiples.

no worries. don't get any more wrinkles than you have to!

Rebecca said...

Well, that's actually good that she got preggo first. That way your baby will be younger than hers and get all the attention from grandparents, etc. If you have a baby before December, then you can dress him/her up with a bow for Christmas, AND your baby will get to be baby Jesus in the family Christmas pageant! See, it's all good!

dharvey said...

Ruth is going to be preggo and ginormous in July, one of the hottest months of the year. I have been thre, done that. No fun at all. She'll have to run the air conditioning full blast when driving her Subaru that smells like compost. :-) Love you, XOXO.

Christin said...

That Ruth, she puts the ich in, well, you know. I can't believe her nerve. She could have at least texted, twittered, or facebooked you about it first. Education doesn't buy class does it?

Motion DeSmiths said...

Breathe. Do we KNOW that they were trying? Maybe it was an accident, TAMN. Before you can get rilly POed, you need to have pointed conversations with her about her *wink wink* life and how weird it is that you BOTH concieved while on birth control pills. If she's like "TOTALLY!" then you can bet it was an accident, and forgive her in a Christlike way. But if she's like, all "Um, what are you talking about?" then you know she was being malishous. At that point you should frownsmile at tell her how sad it was that she TRIED and didn't realize that summer is not at all cute to be pregnant. And then she'll fill bad. Seriously.

Lori said...

Not to take away from your fustrasion, but I have to breath a HUGE sigh of releif that it's only Ruth.

I was SURE you were going to say that Nana or Glamma is preggers.

Token Asian Friend said...

No cute sweater dresses for her this season! Her loss!

The Boob Nazi said...

But she'll be pregnant during the summer and YOU won't. Don't worry, you're way better.

Sandra Huntsman said...

Ok, TAMNers. Time to take a chilly pill. 'Cause one time I totally got pregnant and it was a "miracle" (can't call a little baby an accident, now, can we?) and I was really sad 'cause my other baby was only 10 months old and I had just got my smokin' hot bod back and I was totally gonna miss out on my community theatre production of "Saturdays Warrior" 'cause Julie can't be pregnant. I was way sad at the time and my super-jealous, can't have her own kids sister in law was all sorts of out of sorts that I had the nerve to get pregnant - again! Can you imagine how much my feelings were all black and blue.

I totally know that my story is nothing like yours, I just wanted to share it on your blog so lots of people would read 'cause no one reads my real blog.

kemra said...

The nerve! At least you'll still be smoking hot in your {modest} bikini this summer, and she'll have swollen kankles!!!

Beth said...

This is AWFUL! Now when you get preggy you will always be behind her! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

I just pray she does not steal your names.

Tricia said...

oh dear. lol. i once had a friend like this. she was all bitter and boycotted every baby shower in the ward because she was all offended by the fact that ANOTHER one was preggers. @@ major eyeroll. because it would be SO WRONG to look past your own non-protruding belly button, and BE HAPPY for someone else, right?

and don't be happy for what you do have, like a healthy happy child(ren), just be bitter that you don't have MORE. right?

and make everyone around you aware of the fact that you aren't blessed with MORE. and remove the focus off the preggers girl, and back onto YOU. the important, suffering one.

good luck, hun. with life.

Megan said...

lol. I think I'm going to throw up.

Michelle said...

Remember, you had you perfect twinnies 1st. And, if her baby is cute, your kiddies will have a same-age cousin playmate. Which is SO SO popular right now.

Pam C. said...

So happy for Ruth. Please tell her congratulations from me.

Brian and chelsea said...

ummm... what if dear Ruthy reads this? I mean, I know it's your personal journal and all... but with a couple thousand people reading this blog, she might have also discovered it. Just sayin.

Scrap Happy said...

She is seriously so selfish!

Molly in the Jello Belt said...

You announce your next pregnancy at Ruth's baby shower. That will put her in her place!

And I don't think you need to worry about her stealing your baby names. I mean, her name is "Ruth" so her baby is likely to be "Elizabeth" or "James" and not something cute like "Erilea" or "Brysonton."

Lisa said...

guess you better sit down and have the "these are my names for any future child I may or may not have. I like them, they are mine, whether I use them or not, and you are not to even consider them, or any alternate spelling of them. Also, you may not use any sound-alike names, because then I will know that you are the most selfish, self-centered SIL possible in the entire world" talk. If she got pregnant while you were thinking about trying, she's probably gonna try to take all your baby names too, get on it!

Brooke said...

I love Ruth. Congrats to the expecting mother!!

Guess you'll just have to start stepping up the "Your Baby Can Read" lessons so her kid doesn't get all the attention in a few months, TAMN. {frownsmile}

1002 South said...

Totally so rude - but tell everyone you CAN'T get preggers and have a family fast for your fertilly.

Kim said...

Oh no TAMN!!! You know what you have to do now, right? Tell everyone you're pregnant to steal her thunder and then in a few weeks fake a miscarriage so everyone will feel sorry for you and not pay any attention to frumpy Ruth

Frau said...

I'm sure she'd understand if you asked Glamma not to throw her a baby shower or anything. In fact, it's better if everyone ignore the baby altogether. If they care about their relationship with you, they should be doing just that.

If she's so selfish that she can't wait for EVERYONE else to be pregnant, she needs a wake-up call like that.

Cherios said...

Ditch her baby shower. Oh wait, boring girls like her don't have baby showers.

debbie said...

A frownsmile for people that won't control themselves and make a publick spectacle out of what should stay behind bedroom doors. After all, that IS the Only Reason Ruth got pregnant. Just sayin.

Brooklyn said...

@Sandra --

I totally know that my story is nothing like yours, I just wanted to share it on your blog so lots of people would read 'cause no one reads my real blog.

You are amazing.

Elissa said...

Believe me, I know how this feels. At least you have darling twinsies to console you in your infertility.

*lindsey said...

I totally thought it was going to be your mom.

kris and judd said...

TAMN, just remember how lucky you are next summer when you and the inlaws are all at PAL and you're rocking a modest bikini while Ruth is frumpily preggers.
Ugh, does that mean you'll lose Queenie's services if theres another baby to take care of?

Mormon Bachelor Pad said...

Way to vent, that is selfish!

PS: I frenched Yvette once. It was a "charity never faileth" thing, but I just wanted you to know she's been there.

-j

af1blog said...

Well!! That's just plain selfish, isn't it?

It probably wasn't her fault though - I'm sure she doesn't know what caused it. Maybe you should have a word with her on that score...

Kris said...

Sometimes I just wonder how you endure it all. You are such an inspiration and example to us all.
(I'm with Lori - I though maybe Glamma was. . .I can't even say it)

Jo said...

I can't believe Ruth did that to you! You totally deserve to be upset. Some people just don't think about anyone but themselves and obviously, your frumpy SIL is one of THOSE people. Hopefully she will be listening in church about service and selflessness. humphf.

Nezzy said...

Congrats to Ruth and you dear girl. This Ozarks farm chick knows first hand that winter babies are soooo much easier to cart around in the oven than summer babies. While Ruth is elbow deep in diaper doo, you'll have the warmth of your glow to gloat about on a cold winters night.

So glad I popped in to take a peek. I enjoyed my trip!!! Ya'll have a wonderfully blessed day from the hills and hollers from the Missouri Ponderosa!!!

Kaija Thompson said...

My SIL pulled something like this on me. I had just announced I was preggers (in a really way awesome way, I might add) and she announced her pregnancy the following week. And the worst part...she was farther along than me. How DARE she?!?!?!

Lovely Labor RN said...

Spot FREAKING on!!!

Muum said...

I'll bet her next move will be to take your names you've been saving for your next set of twinz! Register them kwik before she steals them!!!!!!!!!!

Bevan said...

You are so my brother's wife in disguise.

Jessica said...

Mormon Bachelor Pad makes me laugh! Charity french! LOL Too funny!
As for icky Ruth and that abomination in her belly, I wouldn't worry too much. It'll probably look like a sea monkey and you KNOW she'll give it icky names like Noah or Sarah. Nothing cute or creative like your twinsies.

erica said...

you WANTED them to ask YOU if they could 'try'? your brother? seriously? you wanted that?

Mhana said...

Wow, you've gotten so much good advise. If I were going to add anything, it would be to freak her out by bringing up everything can that can go wrong, and bring by really smelly fish as a thoughtful gift because she probably doesn't want to cook. Also, you should probably keep referring to the baby as "the little whoops" or "the mistake" unless she says she was trying then you can way embarass her by telling her you don't want to have her put porn of your brother in your head. You can't stop this pregnancy, but you can delay her wanting to get pregnant again so her kids end up way spaced far apart and lame and you won't get your attention stollen.

jdb in AZ said...

If you tell her which baby names are off-limits cuz you mite need them some day, you can bet those are the very names Ruth will choose. So, you'd best better tell her some yucky names to keep her from using the ones you really want to keep for yourself.

Kamity said...

Don't worry.

Ruth will only be having ONE.

Kamity said...

Oh, and I also wanted to share a quick rant:

When I got engaged, my family decided THAT was the time to inform me my cousin's girlfriend was pregnant and due the next month.

When I announced I was pregnant, my family decided THAT was the time to tell me ANOTHER cousin (unmarried) was pregnant and due the next month.

... WHY do people not TELL me these things?


My only consolation was that my baby was the first, erm, *legitimate* child.

Little Lovables said...

Don't be mad at Ruth... she prolly didn't even know how to get pregnant, like the tribes people in Africa.

She'll prolly be all gross and have it in her living room in a kiddie pool too. At least you won't have THAT!

LauraLuv said...

@ Bevan...
Is your brother married to my sister????

linzipoo said...

What a total bummer! You will have to update us when she gets cankles and thankles (continuous thigh to ankle swelling....not that I ever dealt with that or anything) then we can all fume in our righteous indignation. You can offset it all by taking her some casseroles when she's on bed rest.

Gordita said...

I like the fake pregnancy/fake miscarriage idea. It's brilliant.

Carly said...

Ugh. This post hits home! I recently found out I was preggy and my sis-in-law is so mad cuz she has been trying to have children for a year now. How insensitive of me. I should have taken her, her feelings, the fact that she's older, and that she has been married longer into consideration. And probably just waited for her to have children before I even thought about it. Seriously... people like me and Ruth are soooo selfish!

MJ said...

Is this for real? Really? Seriously??

MJ said...

Ok. I get it. This is a joke. Sorry. I was really freaking out. LOL.

Well, at least you will have the baby grandchild in the family. Right? That's what's really important isn't it? LOL

MandoRama said...

Bahahhaha! Isn't it neat how child-bearing is first-class competition for bored women with nothing better to worry about?
