This is a joke--- RIGHT?

Been a little bewildered for many hours tonight and having a difficult time putting together the words to write this blog.  The cause of my confusion?  An invitation to a baby shower.

Only, the invitation was not for me--it was for my 9 year old daughter to attend the baby shower of her friends 14 year old sister. 

This has to be a joke. 
I realize that we all make mistakes and some we may later regret.  But I have a very (VERY) hard time entertaining the thought of my daughter joining in festivities to celebrate the pregnancy of a girl who is only 4 1/2 years older than she is.  Is this something that should really be celebrated?  I am starting to wonder if I should also be on the lookout for the MTV van and filming crew for "Teen Mom"-- just in case the parents thought that would be a brilliant idea. 

Am I the only person who thinks that this is wrong on so many different levels?


  1. I agree that it is wrong, why are people glorifying teen pregnancy?

  2. Wow! That's one I have never heard before, absolutely amazing how low peoples standards have become!

  3. See, both of those statements are things that were going through my mind as well! I just really didn't know how to say it. Was still in my "deer in the highlights" phase when I wrote this lol.
