well, MIL died Sunday, not unexpected. She was 90 and all in all had a good healthy long life.

bitch

that being said, I told BlackberryBoy that we need to write our obits now, to have them on hand so as to prevent the travesty that passes for obits in his family.

ONE paragraph. Nothing about her as an individual. Hell even I could come up with 4 or 5 sincere, kind, comments about her.

to add insult to injury 

they misspelled BlackberryKid1’s name when mentioning predeceased loved ones.

they misspelled BlackberryGrandKid2’s very common name

they left out our DIL after asking about her name and when they married

they misspelled 2 of MIL’s siblings names.

 

I noticed they didn’t make any errors about SIL’s family, kids, spouses, grands.

these are well educated people with 4 + postgraduate degrees among them, including 2 teachers ffs.

The funeral is in Chicago, 600 miles from us. we aren’t going. I figure they didn’t come to our daughter’s funeral, we can skip hers.

Yikes.  I can’t believe they didn’t go to BB1s funeral. That’s just awful.  I realize not everyone can make it to everything that suddenly in particular, but it sounds like there was really no representation from them?

Misspelling all the names is such a slap in the face.

      Man Bun has never seemed to me like he understands anything about finances except how to spend other people's money.

      Insightful and 100% accurate. 

      FF on the other hand...I can see FF being a successful real estate agent, perhaps, or a house flipper, or a fashion career path. 

      I think she's smart. This is a woman with a high school degree, but she writes quite well.  No misspellings, typos, grammatical errors. 

      Being a fashion blogger/influencer seems easy, but it's a business -- in this instance she's selling her image, fashion, a lifestyle, mom-ing and what not, working to get  sponsors, photographers, modelling gigs, curating social media, all while raising a bazillion kids.  Maybe with financial and geographical stability in her life and kids in public school, she can rev her Instagram back up and start pulling in $$$ on the account. 

      Instagram is made for what she does; the web site appears to have been neglected for awhile.

      Ummm...... I have 9 grandkids and I’m still in my 50’s. And the oldest of them are almost in their teens , and my youngest child is 30. 
       

      On the other hand I have a sister-in-law who had a surprise baby at 50 ish. 
       

      There’s a big range in ages people give birth. 

      This. My first grandson's other grandma was 38 when he was born. My aunt had her last child at 48, and that was back in the day before tech interventions were even thought of. My youngest sister is two years older than my oldest niece. In my baby boomer cohort of friends, my oldest grandchild is 26, one friend is already a great grandma and she is younger than me, another friend's first grandchild just turned 1 and another's daughter is in her 30s weighing whether to have a child (given the current state of the world). I worked with. woman who had her first child at 13 and another who was still having regular periods, and thus could get pregnant, at 55. It's all over the map.

      With the way she was raised it wouldn't surprise me if they didn't fight. You see, fighting means you have an opinion that is different from your husband. It means you are going against him and aren't being submissive. If you are a 100% submissive wife you wouldn't fight because your husband is your authority- not your equal. 

      **I'm not saying I agree with this type of marriage. I don't at all! I am just pointing out what I think is the reality for her.

      Micah and Bella Thomas had Solace John yesterday (24th)

      I assume that the baby is a boy, but the only times I've seen Solace as a name were women/girls with that name.

      I think that’s why their relationship makes so much sense. She’s the fussy older sister / sister mom type who enjoys nurturing siblings and now her spouse.  Justin didn’t get the close, nurturing relationship with his mom, and she’s basically a stand in for her. 

      I thought the same thing about Joe/Kendra and Si/Lauren. They’re further up in birth order than Justin, but they both married into much smaller families who seemed delighted to adopt them as their own. They were also the first son-in-law for both the Caldwells and Swansons, so that definitely accounts for some of the excitement of having the oldest daughter in each family married.
