Oh we get versions of this ALOT- funny BIL is a red head blue eyes and my mom was red head mixed with brown and my sister has blue eyes - but it couldn't possibly be we each passed on a ressesive trait?!

But I blow it off and say "oh our neighbor has red hair blue eyes" (which is true.)

The darn kicker of it- DD is NOT red headed and she has grey/hazel eyes.... But the nasty cradle cap gives the appearance of red hair!!

Ah well- some people just don't get it....

one time we were at dinner with friends (like 4 other couples) and someone we hadn't seen in awhile saw us and came over. Well they new perfectly well who my hubby was- but looks at DD and ask "Is she yours? She looks nothing like you" before DH could reply one of the other guys at the table chimed in and said- "We're not 100% sure yet, but we figure its less confusing if she believes he is her dad...."

What were they thinking : Who asks those kind of questions- just tell me how cute the baby is and go back to your dinner......

Anyhow- now that's the running joke.

Geiamama, please dont think I'm belittling the rude comment to you! Having people say mean things is horrible. Its just such a ridiculous term, I've never heard of it before.
Not at all Shenjall - when my mother said it to me I laughed so hard I almost peed.

In fact she also said that I was "too posh to push" (a phrase bandyed about by the british press to describe celebrities that have elective c-sections) which my BF thought was so funny she put it on a name tag and gave it to me at the hospital!

My mother is lovely and really very supportive (honestly) she just as mad as a hatter!

My dh just texted me to tell me he actually is coming home early tonight. And of course I told him that's great! Because I am honeymoon fresh!

I just didn't know what to say. I can only assume that he was trying to be funny and it came out really wrong. DH was really mad, not to mention confused - DD is a ginger clone of him.
I have 2 good mommy friends with LOs just a few weeks older than my DD A's DH has bright red hair J's DS has bright red hair while both she and her DH have dark hair. Every. single. time. A's MIL sees J's DS she makes some comment about him really being A's DH's DS. J is very polite but I can see her thinking : under her smile.

Oh my gosh, you guys, I am literally laughing myself into tears over "Honeymoon Fresh!" WOW, just wow...

On topic, my 4th DS looks like DH except that he's got pale skin, light brown/blond hair, and huge blue eyes. DH has green eyes and I have brown (and am dark skinned & dark haired), but I just tell people I used an online eye color predictor and there was a 6.2% chance he'd be born with blue eyes. We call him our little genetic winner (since there was such a slim chance of him looking like he does). I guess when the child doesn't actually look like the mother, nobody is rude enough to suggest he's not actually HERS!

"it was a good thing that you had to have a second c-section because it means you're still honeymoon fresh for your husband".

My great-aunt made a similar (but not so amusingly phrased) comment about my having to have an episiotomy--something like, "Oh honey, in my day we all had them, and the stitches are no fun but it does make your man happy!" I didn't tell her that I'm actually quite a different shape than before, or that my partner found it exciting because it was sort of like getting to sleep with somebody new!

"One day she'll want to know who her real father is and you won't be able to tell her"

My partner and I are not married. When I mentioned my pregnancy to the father of one of my Girl Scouts, he said, "Well, to married people I always say, 'Who's the father?' but in your case I won't." Thanks...I think...

My child DOES look like me, but a few strangers asked me whose he was and then explained that I was too thin to have just had a baby! Two of them were polite, but one was very confrontational and followed up with critical comments about the appearance of some of my parts!

You'd be surprised!!! My youngest DD looks EXACTLY like DH (Korean) and nothing like me (ummm decidedly white LOL). I've had so many people say "is she yours???" when we're out, it's amazing. I feel like saying well, we aren't sure, it's possible my husband was cheating on me but we've decided to let it go....

The irony is my oldest two are adopted and no one ever wondered with them (one is blond-n-blue, but the other is olive-n-green)

And the 'honeymoon fresh' line....Oh...My.....:

SOMEONE has to have two bucks for that one!!!

Hello everyone! This thread is great! I cannot get enough!

I have got QUITE the ILs and some real family(my sister) that could use a good whack upside the head!

Before I can tell you what my SIL said you need a little background. This girl(She's 21, but I say girl because...you'll see) has 2 sons, one is 2yo the other is 9.5mo. She has already lost custody of the first due to trafficking(yes drugs...). He also has quite a stutter and slack jaw, little eye contact, constant colds and so forth. The baby is at the docs every 3 weeks with a "new" cold. we're talking pinkeye, crust, green, cough ickiness CONSTANTLY. Realistically, the poor boy can't get away from Glade and Febreeze and scented candles in his OWN ROOM! Both boys are bottlefed(the LO gets about 10-12 full bottles a day still with his only real food being Gerber Graduates???? She wont feed him baby food(he doesnt like it she says, but eats jars and jars when with me and other SIL).

okay, so on to her comment.

the three of us girls(we are baby mamas/GFs to 3 brothers) we out to breakfast one morning and I was complaining about the smell of coffee and how i havent had it in 6 months(longing for it really!) cause of my pg(im 7.5mo now). she says to me, "oh whatever, I smoked a pack a day AND drank 2 pots of coffee or more EVERY day when i was pg with both and theyre JUST FINE!"

its very discouraging to see him, and now don't see my nephew often because of how sick it makes me. picture in a christmas story when the mom does up the little brother in his snow suit. now picture him walking...poor baby looks like this ALL THE TIME. arms out, legs out, and very little, stiff movements. it makes and auntie sad.

oh and my sister(we call her Hollywood or L.A.) just told me how ignorant? i am for not wanting a stroller/car seat set because im going to wear my baby, for CDing, BFing without a schedule OH NO!, and for not circumcising("girls are going to be SO grossed out by him, no one will want to be with him!"). thanks sis.

plus i live in a motorhome and DO NOT have room for all that crap. im a simple girl. we have simple needs.

oh yeah...my MIL keeps pushing my SIL(w/10mo) to give izzy tylenol when she cant sleep. almost every night. and then she tries to dose her without SIL seeing. She actually closed the door to SILs room to do it one night. "just for any aches and pains she might have" and daddy is getting mad at SIL for not listening to his mothers advice....this coming from a woman who once told me she rubbed cocaine on all 4 of her teething baby's gums......HELP!

this is soooo long im sorry. i guess i needed to get some things out... thanks for listening!

My oldest dd is strawberry blonde with light green-gray eyes, while the rest of us have brown hair and a variety of eye colors, LOL. I always get rude comments about her, even from strangers. The worst is when family members make stupid comments about her not being dh's daughter. :

My MIL is constantly making comments. "Oh V, your hair looks so nice after being cut. Are you going to make another baby tonight?" or "Happy Birthday! Are you going to make another baby tonight?" or "Have you made another baby yet? The trains going by must keep you up all night with nothing else to do."

My SIL is a single mother to a 9 yr old daughter. My MIL (one mentioned above) is CONSTANTLY harping about my SIL finding a father for the child. About 2 yrs ago my niece asked my MIL where her father is and my MIL told her "He's coming on his white horse." :

My ds looks just like me only with his bio-dad's coloring. I'm the whitest of the white, bio-dad is Mexican. When I lived in Kansas people would constantly do the open-mouthed gaping he's yours? thing wherever I went.:

That has happened not once in either Hawaii or California, go figger.Seriously, if you have eyes, you cannot miss how much he looks and even moves like me, from his facial features right down to his hands, feet and mannerisms.

Must be something in the water there.

These are so funny!

Here are some gems from my MIL:

Don’t drive with the window rolled down—she’ll get wind colic!

Don’t let her look at herself in the mirror—her teeth will grow in hard!

One from my mom:
Brush her hair all the time, or else she will get cradle cap. (I think she’s just obsessed with DD’s hair, I was completely bald until I was 2)

From many people:

I heard formula is better than breastmilk nowadays.

You made it all the way to 4 months breastfeeding? Woooowwwww

(still breastfeeding, BTW)

The three dumbest things, which I got all in one visit with a ped at the hospital's paediatric emergency assessment team (LC sent us there at 3 months when DD's weight still didn't increase and we were 2 weeks away from an appointment with specialist ped):

"We never remember mums." : (She recognized DH and DD as it turned out she was the awful ped who along with a ped nurse stood laughing and chatting right in my vision (between my legs!) as I tried to push DD out after a long, complicated, induced labour.)

"Most mum's don't have enough milk for their babies at this age."

"But we give vaccines to tiny preemies in the neonatal ward!" (No reason for her to ask about vaccines, but she did, and she pushed it, asking why not and I had replied that we certainly didn't want to vaccinate her while she was so little yet, only about 9 pounds I think.)

Here's a gem I just got TODAY from a nurse...

"Give your 2 yo Carnation Instant breakfast mixed in with his milk to get some fat added into his diet"
Me: "Don't those have a lot of sugar? If it's medically necessary I'd rather go with a smoothie I can mix myself or at least pediasure."
Nurse: "I don't know. You can compare it to Ovaltine or Quik if you like. Let's not go the pediasure route just yet. Let's see how he does on the instant breakfast and check him in 6 months"

Ew. No thanks. I just can't keep the kid fed, he burns it off in 2 seconds!

B wife to B and mama to my two boys B 1/23/07 via csect and H 9/27/08 my vbac babe!
We , selectively (don't) vax, babywear, cosleep, love music, and try to be as crunchy as we can get!

Wow...think of how many people she says that to that go home and whip up some Carnation for their kids! I mean...people assume that you have to KNOW something to have that job...good grief!

My personal nonfavorite is 'let em cry, it excercises their lungs', because my aunt says this ALL.The.TIME!

ew, carnation breakfast? thats even too sugary for me! I'm not a huge fan of pedelite or pedeasure either. They seem deficient. If thats the only thing that you can get down then go for it! Mama milk is waaay better tho.

I'm crunchy... Like a Dorito.

Actually that comment reminds me of a Taco Bell commercial that I half-saw today. There was a guy dressed up in women's clothing, with a huge belly, but inside the clothing was some nachos that he was going to smuggle into the sports arena or movie theater or whatever. So maybe YOU were going to smuggle out a watermelon, LOL. j/k

My ILs scoff (literally they're very uptight and snobby) whenever DH goes over without me and tells them parenting things we're doing. When I'm there they just nod their head and look away Well one day DH tells them that we aren't going to tell DS there is a santa claus, rather we'll tell him a story of saint nicholas on christmas eve. SIL nearly snarfs on her drink and after cracking up says DS will be picked on in school ~ all because we didn't lie to him about santa :

I know, my mom wants me to tell my son there is a Santa Claus so that he can be like everyone else. Because most kids are told Santa is real. Let's join the herd.
