Perfect. Horrible. But, perfect.

Sprogblogger said...

Ooooof. Funny. Horrible in so very many ways, but so damned funny anyway.

Totally off subject, are you going to be able to go to the class tonight?

Pie said...

Ooooof is right.

hil said...

With today marking my third +ve hpt this year...this one is perfect. Laughing away the bad thoughts...and that I'm a year older today too. Thanks again!

Just Breathe said...

Really! Did it bother you?

Barefoot said...

Or should we say -- Oeuf!! (Sorry, I have to use that high school French somewhere.)

As sad as it is, family members provide so much good fodder for things like this. Scary that they are the ones who are supposed to be rooting FOR us!

Bella said...

Gotta love family "support" don't we?! ;)

When I looked at this earlier, I did not see that someone actually said that to you. Ugh.

Melissa and Peter said...

that is a good one!

elliej said...

Oh sweet Jesus, I can't believe someone said that to you. ((((((((((((((((((((((Hugs)))))))))))))))))))))))))

irrationalexuberance said...

oh so true. Terribly that someone said this to you. Sadly, not surprising. Keep these coming!

WannabeMommy said...

That ones funny; I might actually think twice before slapping the person who gave it to me.

Geohde said...

You have a real knack for capturing the sad with the clever.

Funny, and yet very horrible.

If that makes sense,

O.M.G. On the family member, not the card. The card's brilliant. The family member? Not so much.

Chaundra Olsen said...

Heard this too many times after our miscarriages. Like it makes it any easier. Praying for you!

Lara (NoodleGirl) said...

Did the family member actually say "Ooof"? Or did they make a broken egg comment? Do tell!

Oh and, I have an award for you at my blog!

Mo and Will said...

Noodle Girl,

Nah. This family member just said to me when she heard about my miscarriage, "Well, Mo, practice makes perfect!" I added the egg graphic and sound effect.

I think you've gone too far.

Mo and Will said...

anonymous,

sorry if we offended you.

Hi there,
I am curious as to who the doctor was that offered all that testing. In my experience I had to twist their arm for all that! You can email me at waitinginsunshine@gmail.com if you don't want to say it outloud...

I also don't think you went too far in your Hallmark cards. In fact, if it's ok with you, I'd like to use one as my Facebook profile page!

Your spoofs are great. I thoroughly enjoy reading your blog.

I have an award for you on my blog.

Bluebird said...

I absolutely love these. Seriously.

Clare said...

I can see why Hallmark may have rejected this, but it's good to laugh at bad things sometimes. Hoping next time is perfect - there's an award waiting for you on my blog! xx

Lisa said...

O.M.G. Seriously? Although I'm not shocked that people say these things. After my first miscarriage ( I was away on a trip with a friend when it happened), my brother in law came over to pick something up and said "How was your trip?" I said, "It was fucking special."

Kari said...

Thank you for the laughs!! You have an award on my blog.
