There is a girl I worked with for about 7 years and we always had this like...almost competition thing with each other about stupid stuff, but we were "friends" so it wasn't a big deal. Right after I found out I was pregnant with DS she started trying and well our kiddos are about 6 months apart. Now I also have to say she is one of those chicks that doesn't pay attention to her cycles and runs to the bathroom after DTD cause she hates the "stuff" inside her.
So when we decided to take out my Mirena, her and her DH also started trying. Needless to say before I even got my BC out, she was pregnant and now due Oct 1st.
Well today my DS finally started wearing big boy undies all the time and going potty by himself and I posted a pic on FB of him all proud. Her comment is "When I found out I was pregnant I pushed for J to be potty trained, its been so nice for a few months". SO I feel TWO digs in the side there..."Pregnant" AND "Potty Trained".
UGH!!!! What she failed to mention is that her mom kept her son at her house for 2 weeks until he was fully potty trained. I would push for that too if I had someone else to potty train my kiddo!
I'm sure this isn't a big deal....I'm just not in the right place now to being hearing crap like that. lol
Sorry, I had to vent some where, If I complain to my DH he tells me to delete her, which just isn't an option because of so many mutual friends...too much drama
I used to be in the same situation! I got engaged she did too, I built a house, she did, I got married ( she's still yet to do that). But shortly after I was married she told me I quote " you r not allowed to have kids before me" Haha. Keep your head up and just know that they r always wanting to be like us! We r here for u!! ((( hugs))))
I'm so sorry! That is absolutely petty. And just think of it for what it is; it's a really sad state of mind for her to be in if she bases her life's major decisions on some sort of "competition" she needs to have with you. She's not living her life to the fullest. Just brush her off and see it for what it is. I agree with the suggestion to hide her and block her from your wall. No drama that way. I've just recently had to come to the reality that one of my friends who I always thought was a good one, was in fact not. Not only that, she was what I'd consider a toxic person (much like it sounds like this girl is). It's hard to let go of someone and admit that they have no place in your life anymore, but there's times where it's absolutely necessary and for the best. Hope you're feeling much better about the situation today!

Thank you guys so much! I feel better today about it. I just had to remind myself how lucky I am that I don't WORK with her anymore. She was a "toxic energy dump" (from a book we had to read "Fish"). I would much rather read a stupid comment then hear her mouth run all day long!!
i once told a friend that I don't believe in blowing up bridges, But I DO believe in very good gates! haha. And there are days that I have to remind my DH to be like a duck and let it roll off you (when people r being rude he takes it personally). Hope you have a great rest of the weeK!!
