Mother-In-Law Throwdown Contest Entries

Shirky is having a contest, and these are my entries:

1. My mother said this to me in February:
"Adoption is just another one of your projects, like being gay."

2. And then she let loose with this zinger tonight:
"I hope you don't have a baby before Christmas."

Nice, huh?

Do I win?

here's my entry:

on christmas day, when i was very pregnant with the Kiddo, and complaining a bit about how frickin' large i was, my mother said "if you'd just kept your legs closed, you wouldn't be in this position".

mama and i don't get on so well, you think?

Oh, Clementine, I remember the first one but thought it was better now. That totally sucks. I mean, if she had said that with the qualifier that she would be sad if you couldn't cross state lines to go there for Christmas, it would be bad, but not AS bad. Apparently, she didn't. So sorry that she sucks. Petunia wins in the MIL contest for that story, and you can win even more, since your MIL doesn't even recognize your marriage or acknowledge you at all.

Clementine, you and Hashbrown win as far as people I know and MIL stories.

Also, my "special" mom is gonna get a frickin' kick in the teeth from me if you don't mind my saying so.
