Aren't you a little young to be making senile comments?

From sender-inner Lady E.

Upon telling her own mother about her miscarriage, her mother says:

"Oh. I'm sorry to hear that. But aren't you reaching the age limit for that anyway?"


The silence you hear is me lifting my chin up off the floor. Lady E is only 39. Also, how rude! Maybe it's time to start looking at "residential facilities" for mom...


  1. This definitely calls for the tried and true, "Wow. Just... wow."

  2. Let's look at these shiny brochures, mom!

  3. I am 35 and experiencing my third pregnancy loss. I never even told my mother I was pregnant this time. She recently called international long-distance to let me know that I was too old to be having babies. Her exact words were, "You ain't no spring chicken." Beyond sad.
