So we took my mom her boyfriend and my brother out for mothers day today, since she works tomorrow. Well, we told her about baby this morning and she was so happy! It went great
Gast forward to now, my idiot brother POSTS ON FACEBOOK that he's going to be an uncle. We haven't even told the in laws yet... that's tomorrow. I coukd not believe his stupidity. Whether we said not to share or not, that's not his news to put out there! Let me just say, when I came home and told DH we didn't exactly say the nicest things.
Please don't think I'm over reacting. But after 2 losses, and my aunt with a history of losses that he knows about, he should be smart enough to figure out you don't share that sh*# without asking first!
OMG I don't even know what to do with him right now. Mind you, he is a 26 year old adult... supposedly
DH's cousin did that last time but at least she only posted something on my wall so I could take it down myself. It's very frustrating! I was careful to warn family we've told this time not to say anything until we post something publicly.
I don't think men think about that type of thing. I think they get excited and don't see what the big deal is about sharing, especially at 26 and I'm guessing he's never experienced losses first hand to understand exactly why you like to keep that info tucked in a bit until later. Men are almost universally idiots when it comes to that sort of thing unless they've had direct experience in that area.
