In tears right now- am I overreacting?

I think I'm being totally ridiculous right now, but I can't help it. So for the longest time I've dreamed of having a son and doing his nursery in owls. I picked out every single item and blogged, dreamed, and talked about it all the time. Well my SIL just told me that she is doing the nursery for her baby in owls, and all the stuff I picked out!


Now this would tick me off a little if I could have a baby because she "stole" my idea, but is absolutely tears me apart because I may never have a child and she f*cking knows this! Then she goes and rubs it in my face even more by making my dream nursery for her baby!? WTF is wrong with this selfish b*tch?!!!


Sorry I'm just so upset. I just text her back and said "Dude, please don't put me through that. It's hard enough on me right now."


:( crushed...

I haven't told her any name ideas thank god! She doesn't even realize why this is hard for me. And I'm just so pissed to start with because of how irresponsible she's being with her pregnancy.

I would be so pissed!  That is just hurtful--plain and simple. I mean to even use the same stuff you picked out is just outright trying to hurt you in my book.  Ugh, sorry!

I would be really upset and I don't think you're overreacting. I learned the hard way a couple years ago not to tell anyone anything because they just might steal your idea (mine wasn't baby related, it was wedding related and regardless of what it is, it sucks when people do that!)

You have every right to be upset, I would be too.  SIL had a baby a few months ago and before she found out she was having a girl, she was going to take the name WE have had picked out for a boy, for years.  It caused a huge fight between DH and SIL.


The thing I don't get is, don't these people feel stupid about taking someone else's ideas?  I would never feel right about stealing ideas that someone else gave to me!

She's being an a$$.  You should shank her!  Ok, so you probably shouldn't REALLY shank her, but that's what my friend always says to me when someone is being an a$$.  :)  People suck.  And the worst is when those people are family, because then if you don't want to see them ever again because THEY suck, then YOU are the bad guy.  Sorry she is being like that.  :(

Thanks girls! I'm glad I wasn't being out of line. I told my mom and she flipped out. She wants to smack my SIL. DH is incredibly upset too. This is definately the lowest blow she's ever taken at me. Doesn't seem like she's gonna back down or change her mind about it. DH said we will just do our owl nursery bigger and better :) I have a good husband.

I would be really ticked!! I have a cousin that does stuff like this to me all the time...has to do the same thing and then try to be better at it. I'm so glad your husband is being supportive about it!
