They finally shut up when I told DH that women can be so catty sometimes.
Envy is an ugly thing
I need to get a couple more gheto sheets myself!!

Why oh why do I find that hysterical?! Sorry... not meaning to poke fun at a really rude comment like that, but I guess I find it so ignorant that it's cracking me up.

reading your post after seeing your ddddc made me laugh--although it is amazing how some people...um...have a way with words? how weird!

Maybe they were on their way to the Jerry Springer show. Some people are just class acts.

"If you wear your baby and want to confront the accuser who called your baby sling 'ghetto' call us at 1 800- DumbAss. As an added bonus, If you take off your shirt and sheet to fight & bitch slap each other, we promise many fuzzy closeups".

Arent people silly I dont know what "ghetto sheet" is supposed to mean, but I think that particular sling is really quite pretty. I have also been recently drooling over hotslings, so think you made a great choice
I think that babywearers just get lots of comments b/c it is not necessarily the norm. I just try to have witty comebacks for the more ridiculous comments
I love wearing my baby and think there couldnt be a better way to do it!

I *think* the comment meant she thought you had your baby tied to your chest with a bedsheet and that was "ghetto" or what my brother calls low budget. :LOL Love the DDDDC and that sling is so pretty, I don't think it looks like a sheet at all and I have a sling I made from a sheet so I know what I'm talking about .

I think you hit the nail on the head there about what she probably meant. In which case, who cares if you are wearing a sheet, as long as it is a functional sheet that holds your baby close to you!

I would have looked at her, laughed right in her face and walked away still laughing uncontrollably. :LOL

"ghetto sheet" lol

(I'm still laughing...)
post #38 of 45
I would been mad too...but just thinking about that is pretty funny. I can't believe she said that so that you could here it! How rude!

What a great way to handle that situation. If they had something to say they should have just asked you or shut up rather than following you around making comments. I've been lucky that most people have given me positive comments about my pouches and wraps but I do hear whisperings here and there that I'm not sure are positive or negative. I just try to ignore them and tell myself that the mamas who say stuff are usually either wearing Eddie Bauer/Snuglis that look WAY hot and uncomfortable or trying to lug a stroller onto a train or bus.
