TTC vent: they took my (blank)
So I've noticed on here (and other boards) that people post vents about people stealing your idea for a nursery room or a baby name. People do it all the time, and those people suck. Maybe it's old news, maybe it just happened, maybe you are still upset, maybe you look back on it and laugh. You don't really get to complain about it IRL because people think you are just being a big baby, even though we all know you are completely justified. Not being pregnant RIGHT NOW doesn't give someone else the right to use your ideas for a room or name just because they got pregnant first, right? Right. Anybody have a stealer story to share?
I'll start. I was married once before, right out of high school. My ex and I talked about kids, like most people, but we were waiting until I finished college. (We separated just a couple of months before I finished.) But we had talked about kids and names and that kind of thing. Well I had always wanted a little girl, and to name her Madison. Shortly after we divorced, his girlfriend (the one he got while we were married) became pregnant and they married. She had a little girl and they named her...Madison. I got over all of that, really I did, but I keep a list of names I like, and I am sometimes mad that I can't put Madison on there because then it would look like I named my kid the same as his, even though it was my idea first. I am not a copy cat!!
