Anyone else need a safe space to vent some anger and frustration at the totally thoughtless crap that people say? Please, come join me.
I'll start ****(DS1 mentioned)****
Yesterday, I ran into an acquaintance / FB friend (which instantly makes me nervous because it's always those acquaintance types which are the ones to say potentially awful things) and we were talking and she said that she saw on FB that we had two little boys now. So I responded that yes we did but sadly our second son passed away a little over a year ago. To which she responded "oh, I'm sorry, I thought I saw that you had another baby". What?! Seriously?! I just told you that we had another baby. My response to her was "well, we did have another baby. His name is Colton, he would be almost 17 months old. But he passed away". (I do not understand why people think that just because he was still born, he somehow doesn't count!) She still wouldn't let it go, and said something like she thought she saw a post from me about two little boys. To which I responded "well you probably did. I post about Colton often." Errr. She was so not catching on and so thoughtless. Thankfully it don't see her often!
Okay, anyone else need to let some anger out? Please join me. It feels better to get it out, and I know you ladies understand.
