"The Only Child Syndrome"

When you hear the word syndrome, don't you think of something like...a disease?? An abnormality, perhaps? It really pisses me off that my daughter's step-mother (who happens to be one of NINE children and is 20 weeks pregnant with a child of her own) decided to use those words to describe Elise's behavior in her blog.

Gee, I am really sorry that not everyone can pop out insane numbers of children to ensure that their kids like to share with others. It's been my personal experience that most 3-yr olds don't like to share their toys regardless of whether they have siblings or not.

It's pretty unfortune timing that she should choose to call Elise out as one of those icky "only children" while I am in the midst of infertility testing.

Man, I am sorry to hear about that. I guess some people just don't care about others feelings. BTW, I am sorry I referred to Asherman's Syndrome as a disease in an earlier post. I DID NOT mean it that way at all. I am just losing my mind with the moving. I am truly sorry.

Melanie said...! I didn't mean that at all!!! It is a syndrome! I was just pissed that being an only child was viewed as some "syndrome", like there would be something wrong with Elise if she didn't have a sibling. I totally didn't take offense to anything you said at all. Love ya!

Oh Thank God, I was really sweating that you might not talk to me again....I knew what you were talking about, but I still felt bad. Ummm, all I have to say about the only child "syndrome" is that you were an only child and I think you turned out pretty damn awesome. Elise has the love of you and Jamie and that is enough to last a lifetime. But, I will continue to pray for you and hope that all your dreams come true. Oh, and I love ya too!!! :)
