some people are so cruel and mean

I am pregnant for the first time and have recently found out that i am having twins! i am both and and have been busy thinking of names.

Dh and I after lots of thought, have decided on Flopsy and Mopsy for our twins.They are cute sweet names that go together and can be used if we have a girl or a boy.

However when dh told his mum, she went mad and told us we were being stupid.

I am really upset now and feel she has ruined what should be a really special time for us.

So come girls-how cute are my names for my little babies?

Aaah, so sweet.

What do your friends in your warren think?

I hope your MIL ends up in a pie or a fox - it would serve her right.

Dumb and dumber

c'mon, if you're going start a wind-up at least make an effort to be amusing!

and if you think people are mean, you should see how mean they can when they're the pint-sized variety of person normally found sitting in desks in school classrooms.


Flibbertyjibbet · 28/01/2008 14:45

Isn't this where someone comes along and puts
'tripp trapp tripp trapp'
and comments about being under a bridge?

Not even a decent wind up.

What's wrong with Cotton-tail and Tom Kitten?


trixyp · 28/01/2008 14:48

the other option was tiggy and peter but i thought our first choice sweeter.

i can't believe you don't all like it.
