.....who do you wish you were not related to?


I have a sister in law.


Must repeat to self: You can pick your friends not your family. Pick friends not family.

Thankfully most of my family consist of people that I would still hang out with if I was given a choice.

While I am not close to anyone in my bio family or inlaw family, except my kids and husband and his brother, I do love them all and wouldn't change them for others. But the relationships could be better, to be sure.

Free to a good home or any home....my dad, his entire family, my mothers brothers and sisters and one of my brothers. It's not me, it's their "issues" with my family.

Do you, like me, have those who SLAM you for choosing to have a big family?

Yeah, as far as I am concerned, everyone is dead on my side except for my father and but for an Aunt and Uncle of my husband's, same goes....Touchy subject at this moment

Of course, I am VERY irresponsible for having so many kids.

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.

I would say my father. He left when I was nine, and never looked back. I have since reconnected with his sisters (who are wonderful) but he has no interest in me or my children. Oh well. It just causes some weird moments when I have to wonder if he will be showing up at a function that my aunts are having. I don't participate in many things they do because of him. I wish I could just erase him from the family. That would make life easier. Sadly - his sisters generally choose me over him anyway.
