To think that my reprobate cousin shouldn't be having a baby?

(319 Posts)

My cousin (I don't have a lot to do with her tbh because she --is a chav--does my head in) has just announced on Facebook that she and her "hubz" (boyfriend) are having a baby. She is not even 8 weeks pregnant hmm

My reasons for this are:

1. A few weeks ago she was doing FB statuses berating "the hubz" for hitting on other gyals <oh God> and doing those wanky "Y wud u go lukin 4 burggers when u got stake at home???" statuses. She is a child in a childish relationship.

2. About an hour after announcing her news on FB she updated her status saying "2 all de haterz out dere imma gonna be a GOOD MOM stop PMing me ur hate not intrested BYE"

3. Neither of them work.

4. She is immature. For example, at a relative's funeral a few weeks back, she sat texting through the whole thing. It was painful to watch.

5. Apparently, according to her Vicki Pollard mates who've been writing business all over her FB wall, my cousin has being trying to conceive for TWO YEARS! WTAF?! Why would you be trying THAT hard to conceive when you live in a flat, neither of you have a job and your boyfriend sounds like a penis? Why?

6. Her twin sister announced the pregnancy on HER FB before her sister had even done it. My head is spinning with confusion. I wonder how I share genes with these people.

<zips up flameproof suit>

I am sure her and hubz will be on JK in a years time!!

Nope she shouldn't be having a baby but she can't send it back.

Another poor little sod to be brought into the world...............prime example of why this country has gone to shit!

Any room in that suit?

What's living in a flat got to do with trying to conceive? Should only people who live in houses have kids? hmm

YANBU people should have to pass the theory as well as the practical before becoming parents....

SORRY half of my text seems to have evaporated from the flat sentence. "A flat you don't pay for" blush

My eyes... they bleed... ""Y wud u go lukin 4 burggers when u got stake at home???" " Takes the biscuit for awful txtspk though!

Her Facebook statuses are not really an inclination on how good a mother she will be.

You never know she might surprise you wink

Plus what can you do? Nothing. Exactly.

How old is she?

None of your business.

EverlongLovesHerChristmasRobin Thu 06-Dec-12 10:42:22

Number 2 is funny though.

She is 20 but I think she is more like a 15 year old, honestly.

Hopefully she will mature and be a great mum....

Anniegetyourgun Thu 06-Dec-12 10:44:30

Maybe becoming a parent will make her grow up? <hopeful>

She sounds like a horror but there's been many a silly mare whose been turned into a really good adult by motherhood.

Give her a chance.

x2boys Thu 06-Dec-12 10:45:10

actually do agree with you does nt sound like an ideal situation but going to run away now as its all going to end in a benefits slanging match!

EverlongLovesHerChristmasRobin Thu 06-Dec-12 10:45:35

Does she have a good support network? A good role model?

Maybe you can help her? wink

SantaIAmSoFuckingRock Thu 06-Dec-12 10:47:31

what's really good about this is that your opinion doesn't have any bearing on whether anyone has children or not.

FunnysInLaJardin Thu 06-Dec-12 10:48:54

this could go one of two ways...........

Y iz u been a hater cuz? I fort we woz close Bt obvs not.

Me, hubz n da bubz r guna be well init. Sik of all da haterz! Inabit cuz, c ya at bubz christnin, brin ya own alk doe. Guna get steamin mate

She doesn't have a good role model, Everlong. She is following in the footsteps of her mum and elder sister who both had children young to wanker men. sad

YABU a little bit.

It's none of your business whether she has a baby or not, but the nice thing to do would be to be a good role model for her and support her where possible.

Ok, not a great start for a baby, but it could be so much worse.

Have a heart, help her out, guide her, and if it annoys you that much, unsubscribe from her inane Facebook updates. You can't stop her typing it, but you don't have to read it.

Merry Christmas.

YANBU but you will be told that YABU

EverlongLovesHerChristmasRobin Thu 06-Dec-12 10:53:57

Not good OP. And it will carry on with her dc and so on.

Can you not take her under your wing?

I know it's difficult though. My ds's girlfriend who had his baby sounds a bit like her the reason why I defriended her on fb thinks she know everything, can't say anything. So I keep it zipped.

It will be how it will be I suppose.

hermioneweasley Thu 06-Dec-12 10:54:18

YANBU

And doesn't the fact that she decided to announce her pregnancy at seven weeks indicate how clueless she is about this? I think she's overtaken by the feeling of having cute bubbah and congratz hun than the actual 18+ years of motherhood that she has coming to her...
