It's just so typical of her mother's "I'm better than you" line of thinking.
You're right, I guess I would have but then again I get myself into trouble all the time with my temper LOL! You did much better than I would have....I still don't know where she gets off talking to you that way. I would NEVER talk to one of my aunts like that!!!

So, I did a quick little tally in my head, and you are definitely in a long line of women who had babies with their oldest children, especially since you started so young. My mother's two youngest brothers are the same age as my two oldest cousins on that side. And actually, my grandfather was the same age as many of his nieces and nephews (and met my grandmother because she was the roommate of one of his nieces and she went to their place for Thanksgiving).

It is NOT a completely abnormal thing at all. Especially since you're still young enough to conceive on your own. I'd worry about your sanity if you were using medical interventions to conceive when this baby is having babies though! =

wow, her IQ must be about 980 in order to know so much about your life, what a lucky girl! Is she a psychic by any chance?

This is very true! I mean, maybe an extreme example but look at the Duggars! Their oldest son is on his SECOND child and the mom still will probably have another baby. Now, of course "normal" people space them out way more, but my mom is only 3 years older than her niece, her oldest sister is 30 years older than her and in a nursing home already!!!

That is just so wrong in many ways! Didn't anyone teach her that if she doesn't have anything nice to say not to say anything at all?????? I guess not! I would have let her have it to.

Ugh, I can't stand ppl like that. If it makes you feel better, my DD's uncle is 3yrs younger than her, and we don't find it weird at all. Her dad does, but he is in his own little box of stupidity, so he doesn't count.

I know. I'm not a very private person. My whole life is on JM for all to read, so why bother hiding Facebook. Proctor is my maiden name, so my real last name is a mystery to all those who don't know me in real life.

Angela, I saw your comment. Thanks for the support! It's 11:00 where she is, so I doubt she'll respond today or at all. We've had a conversation anyway, and as far as I'm concerned, it's resolved.

Wow! What a judgemental little twit. So sorry you had to deal with that because you shouldnt have to. That's just ridiculous. She reminds me of my 20 yo sister, swears she knows EVERYTHING and you can't give her any advice. I definitely wouldve given her a piece of my mind.

My brother's daughter. Neely asked me if I talked to him about it. I didn't and won't. #1, she's 20 and there's not much he can do about it anyway. She's in the UK and he's here in Maryland; #2, I don't really think there are really her own opinions; and #3, I really don't want to go to war with her and I think "tattling" to daddy will only make matters worse. I really do love her and she's normally a nice, bright, well-rounded, hippy kid.

It's a super long story. When they separated, I rallied around my brother because he was like a lost puppy. She thought we could still be friends and everything was just fine, despite how she treated my brother. They had initially signed an agreement with a mediator that neither would move more than 75 miles from where the girls currently lived. This was incorporated into their court order.

In the summer of 2001 she met a guy online from the UK and he came here to visit. He stayed here about 6 months on a visitor visa and ran his graphic design business from here. Then in the fall she decided that they were just going to move to England and she filed a motion with the court to change the custody/visitation agreement. The court didn't see her desire to move as an emergency so they set a hearing date for March of 2002. That wasn't soon enough for her, so she just up and moved in violation of the court order. Immediately after she moved, I helped Philip get a lawyer, we filed a petition with the Hague convention (which is a treaty that several countries have signed saying they will enforce the custody/visitation agreements of other countries) and they went to where she was in the UK and seized her passports, and told her she would be on a plane back to Maryland to go to court and they would return the passports at the gate. Meanwhile Philip had filed a contempt action against her because she violated his visitation rights.

After a long horrendous three day trial in March of 2002, where I was really Philip's biggest supporter, the judge gave her permission to live in the UK and visitation to my brother. He did find her in contempt of court and she was ordered to pay $10,000 of my brother's attorneys fees ($17,000), ordered to pay for all travel for them to come to Maryland and for him to go there if he chose to. She has never paid him a penny and has never paid for them to fly here. In essence she won, but I think she thinks that if I hadn't pushed so hard for Philip, he might not have even fought her. I dunno.

Wow...how sad for your brother! I would be devastated, I think it's really a crappy thing for her to do to just up and move them to another country

My ex and I are on good terms and he knows full well that we plan on moving to the West Coast in a few years when DH gets out of the military, but he can move too at that point in time. And the only reason we would live overseas if DH absolutely HAD to for the military.

Yeah, I'm on really good terms with my ex husband too, despite all the crap he did to me. I figure it's harder to stay mad and hate someone than it is to just move on. He and I never had any problems after the divorce was final. It's one of the reasons it's so hard for me with Neely and his ex and how much animosity and bad mojo has gone on there. Well, and she's crazy. Maybe I'll tell that story some day.
