Parents RUINED my baby shower! LeeAnne Porter 3 kids; Chalmette, Louisiana 33 posts

Well this is going to be a lil long, but ive got to vent. A week before my shower, which I threw for myself at my home, my parents and I got into an arguement over their reckless lifestyle choices. My mom is the type who turns every situation into a fight abd puts on that victim role. Ive dealt with this all my life an have become immune to her "woe is me" role playing. Anyways, after the arguement, she sends me horrible messages on Facebook, and texts me horrible things, so I deleted and blocked her from sending me any more. Well she says shes not coming to the shower. So I said fine, I dont need that negativity and drama at my party. Also im 38 weeks pregnant! Well, she AND my dad showed up anyways, and LATE. walked In my house, did not speak to anyone and plopped themselves down in the kitchen! Everyone felt the tension and eyeballed me for a reaction, but I gave none! I completely ignored the obvious chip on their shoulders. We proceded to play the games and to which she was told to come in the living room to participate and her words "IM NOT PLAYING THAT $HIT!"... So I once again igored it. After the games we took pics by the cake, and normally shes a pic fanatic and takes way too many pics of everything and she did not take or sit in on one pic, the cake was cut, gifts were opened and I opened a gift from an aunt who went above and beyond for me and her gitts and my moms gift were similar. So since my aunts gift was already opened, out of the box and set up, my moms whose gift was still in the box, thre a fit and argued with my aunt over "why she didnt tell her what she was buying!" Well my mom got mad at me and stormed out my hoyse, to which her and my dad started yelling at each other in my front tard, I went outside, asked what they were doing and my mom says "we are effing argueing wtf does it look like!?" So I said "get away from my house with that!" & my dad gets in my face, pointing his cell at my forhead and belly bumped me TWICE, all while screaming about disrepecting my mom!!! So I said "leave or im calling the cops!" & my mom barges in my door, and takes all her gifts back all while screaming obsene words. I was so embarrassed, all my guests left, and now my mom is texting my husband saying "im the one who started all the crap!" He knew what happened before I could tell him bc a mutual friend was here and called him. And he doesnt respond to my mom at all. My shower was ruined and they disrespected me and my unbirn child as well as my hubby and other two kids and guests. and

of course shes saying they are the victims in this!! I expected this crap from my mom. But never my dad! I dont want either of them at the hospital for the babys birth or at my house anymore!

Well they sound classy. Sound's like it might be time to cut mom and pop out of the picture till they get their shit together.

I would get a restraining order, honestly...especially after your dad became physically threatening to you.

I mean.... Did you say hello to them when they came in....?

Sounds like it would be good for you and your parents to have some space.

That's nuts. Yeah I think it would be best if you removed thm from your life compleatly . I would let her know she's no longer welcome in your life and you will e blocking her number . Also I would tell her if she ever shows up at her house or thy get into our face agian that you will call the cops . You don't need them in your life if this is how there going to act and your child doesn't need it either.

Oh jeez. I'd be livid. Definitely would cut them out. I've considered cutting our families out for smaller offenses. This would take the cake.

i agree.

OP it would be better for your children already present as well for you to cut ties.

I'm sorry to hear that happened. If I knew my mom acted like that in the past, I probably wouldn't have invited her. Don't tell them when your at the hospital or the same thing might happen.

He belly bumped you?! I'd have called the cops you're much nicer than I am. Cut them out. If they show up at the hospital ask the nurse to ask them to leave. There was a code word at mine. All I had to do was call the nurse and drop a certain word and she'd come in and clear the room. Then ask who I wanted to come back if anyone.
