A furious expecting mum has lashed out at her mother for inviting hundreds of people to her baby shower, which is being hosted by a friend.
The mum-to-be says her mum posted the baby shower invitation on Facebook, to her 500+ friends, with the caption, “Who wants to come celebrate with us?!”
“My hubby’s close family friend offered to host us at her private home. We had already discussed a set guest list of 30 people. The invitation included the home address and personal mobile number of the host,” the expecting mum explained on reddit.
“My mother-in-law called me freaking out about the family friend’s privacy. I told her I would contact my mother immediately and I profusely apologised. I thought my mum would private message the guest list we had discussed.”
Incredibly, her mum didn’t seem fazed by the error – in fact, she was annoyed at having to remove the invitation.
“My mum responded by saying we were over-reacting. She said, ‘OHHH MY GOD’. Then said she was in the middle of something and was too busy to take down the post immediately. I got upset and told her that since Facebook is connected to her phone she could delete the post in less than two minutes and that I would redesign an announcement that she could share freely. She repeated she was busy and would do it by the end of the day.
“I understand the excitement, but I want to be really respectful of the host since she is being kind and saving us a lot of $ for this special celebration.
“Am I the a**hole for getting upset and embarrassed by my mum’s behaviour?”
