So a couple of weeks ago I was in the car with my younger sister and her husband and their son's Christening came up. I asked if they had picked the Godparents yet and they looked at each other awkwardly and my sister said they were still thinking about it. I was like oh ok, we'll we're asking Aunt Donna (who is both of our favorite Aunt and I kinda wanted to make sure she wasn't asking her too). So I proceeded to tell her that we're going to have a custom onesie made that says, "Dear Aunt Donna, Will you be my Godmother? Love, Baby's name." They said oh that's cool and the subject changed.
Fast forward to a few minutes ago. I'm perusing through my FB feed and see a post from my sister's best friend saying, "Yes I will!" with a picture of my nephew WEARING A ONESIE ASKING HER TO BE HIS GODMOTHER!!! I'm so annoyed with my sister right now. First off, if you think my idea is cool, then say hey I liked your idea, do you care if I do the same thing? Or if it was something she had already thought of on her own then when I told her about it she should've said that's funny, she was thinking the same thing! NO. I find out on freaking FB.
I know I have to just let it go and not really say anything bc it will turn into a war so I'm venting here (and of course to my wife, poor thing!) I also know that in the grand scheme of things, it's really not that big of a deal, but it's just fresh and I'm pretty fuming right now.
So now instead we're going to make a Shutterfly book with pics of the ultrasounds and the baby once it's born and on the last page have it say the same thing the onesie would have. I love this idea too, but it just wasn't the original!!!
Shirley--I am the SAME way. It's so unbelievably hard to bite my tongue.
Can't say anything to her right now though, I just found out she just had a blowout with our Mom and banished her from her home. Maybe my sister's hormones are still out of whack from having my nephew 3 months ago, idk. But she's on a rampage! I'm steering clear of that mess for now!
Wow. I just don't get how people can do crap like that. I'm sorry she stole your idea (which was adorable) but your second idea is cute too!
I can also understand you wanting to steer clear of her hormonal (or whatever ) mess, though I agree it would be SO HARD to not say something!
And this is why I want to get rid of my Facebook!
It's so aggravating when others take your ideas, especially when it comes to cute things to do about baby.
I still say do the onesie idea though It's too adorable not to, besides it's not like you'll be asking the same person!
