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

Vent over.....

That's not right!!! Or FAIR!! That's totally stealing your spotlight and robbing you of your special moment, announcing your news to everyone individually, at your own pace. I think this ettiquite is pretty well known, am I wrong? Doesn't everyone know not to announce things like babies, engagements, parties, ect for other people? I mean come on!! It's not their news to share!!

Ugh, I'm so sorry that happened. Hopefully the inlaws didn't see it? Is that a possibility?

Im pretty sure they aren't friends with him on FB. Thank goodness. And he had it down within about 15 minutes after posting.

I thought it was well known etiquette as well.. however, that's not his strong suit :/

I know he's just excited... and that he feels really bad but I can't feel bad about that. Ugh. Why can't men just think?!? Lol

Jackie haven't you heard men tend to think with a different 'brain'? Just think about how excited he must have been to go post it so quickly. I agree though it'd be nice if he had thought first though.

Oh I'd be pissed. I can't believe that he posted that. I'm glad he was so excited but I wish he would have thought and not posted anything until you were ready.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

This should be common sense, but since it isn't, I make sure to tell those that I do tell that it is a secret. You just never know. I am glad that he was excited and that he listened and took it down. SHEESH!
