And is it awful for me to admit I really, really want to hear the wedding planning stories?  >:D

Yes please Weeble! If Linda's MIL is not PA, maybe she'll need her own thread but I'd also look forward to the guilty pleasure of hearing about the wedding planning stories!

I don't want to give too many stories for fear of being identified, they were pretty specific.  Let's just say that one of Don's sisters actively tried (and succeeded) to conceive so she would be heavily pregnant at the wedding, "because it's not fair that Don and Linda get so much attention."  Linda figured that was the sister's choice and she wasn't about to complain.

But during the rehearsal dinner, the mother of the bride heard this sister talk about pretending that she was going into labor during the vows and causing a big disruption.  It was not said in a joking tone. I believe the mother of the bride's response was to tell the sister that the MOB would wait until Sis gave birth and then smack the stupid right out of her.  Sis of course pitched a fit about being threatened and it turned into a big ugly scene.

Gulp! :-[ Maybe I wouldn't be able to handle the Don-n-Linda Saga!

PS, by MOB, I mean the mother-of-the-bride, not an organized crime family.

And what a charming story for their children.  Most parents can start with 'Mommy and Daddy loved each other and we were so happy when you came along!'  This poor kid gets 'We wanted to mess up Brother's wedding and this was the best way we could think of'.  Of course they may well have been planning to have a baby anyway and just delighted in the chance to time it this way, but I can't imagine people who treat their siblings that way will be  much more loving towards their kids.

Wow... I think that's actually a more heartless baby conception story than my friend in high school who charted her cycles so her teen pregnancy would net her the maximum ammount of college financial aid possible. (She managed to get a totally free ride to college between getting a grant for single moms, one per year for teen mothers, one for her cheerleading and one for being a minority. Plus some small scholarships for various other activities. It took some serious planning to pull what she did!) Student loans weren't an option because of a lack of qualified co-signers IIRC.

For the record, the "college" baby is seven now, and is VERY loved. To my knowladge she has never come right out and admitted to the kid that it was born because Mommy wanted to go to college and couldn't get a loan.

I have to admit, I chuckled reading this... then I was pretty much amazed at the absurdity and sheer..... Yeah. Lack of words. That is an epic way to get an education!
