My DS29 was born on his due date! I never went late with 4 kids .

I had my first 2 on my due date, my 3rd was 12 days early due to a complication. My water broke with my third and it was like a slow drip. I had to have it broke with my first 2.

I'm such a cynic and thought from the beginning that it was bs, so I never posted on it. I know there are many fakers on this board and I know of one that lives near me and posts here, but she doesn't know I know The lies she conjures up amazes me, but I don't want to call her out online, so I just let it roll off my back. I believe in Karma.

This reminds me of a thread a long time ago, about the girl who was pregnant with twins, possible boys, possibly girls, maybe one of each. Does anyone remember that thread?? I wish I could find it. It made me laugh on a daily basis.

The two usernames were telling vastly different stories. This one had all the drama and international moves. The other incarnation was sharing little details of normal, happy couple hood and nice little things her DH did for her.

Again, tall tales are not a big deal. But as the drama escalated and the "baby" arrived, generous and caring people started talking about sending gifts and cards. That was the tipping point where the entertaining tall tale leaned toward taking advantage of people in tangible, real-life ways.

And that's where I closed it.

The poster was never in Canada or California, there is no Henry. I was in contact with the poster in question, there is no doubt about this being a mistake.

So that's the story.
I just don't get it.

But thanks for the explanation.

I had my first on her due date, also. My second one was induced a little early.

I hope no one sent any gifts. I make it a rule NEVER to send gifts or money no matter what the story, but I know some people have bigger hearts than I do.

I've done the berries and the greenery for a few years now, but the reindeer and the holly were my MIL's from when DH was growing up so I repurposed them after we inherited everything.
Sorry for the grainy pics, I took them with my phone.



OMG those reindeer are so cute and I LOVE your mantle decor, so pretty!!! You may have inspired me to get some holly berries for my mantle.

I have a pretty good meter for story telling but that one didn't set off the alarms, maybe a bell or two that it seemed off somehow but it still seemed believable in ways. I'm glad it wasn't true and glad I didn't get too invested in that thread. My DD24 was 2 weeks early, DD16 was a few days late and DD12, well she was 2 weeks late......LOL

Kerri, you'll have to share pics! I need to raid the suitcase with MIL's other decorations to see what other great vintage ornaments she had. The reindeer had sticks coming out the bottom to put them in plants, so I just pulled those out.
I have one lone red reindeer so I put that one in the dining room. I'll post pics of that when I'm done in there.

Thank you so much for posting Kathy! I was stymied when I saw the thread locked.

Personally I feel the mods should spill the beans on who it was. Who's to say she wasn't a liar liar pants on fire with her other user name too? Poster who befriended this person have a right to know.

Thanks for filling us in WM Kathy. I can't believe people have time to make up that stuff...I barely can chat about my own life much less making up a fake life to talk about.

So... Does this mean there was no sweet father singing outside her bedroom door while she sweetly nursed her newborn son?

I fell for that story from the start. Her cats, well, they just broke my heart. Who could up and leave their kitties? I figured she was desperate to just get away.

Ah well. I fear I will still always err on the side of humanity so I'll probably fall for the next sob story. I'd rather do that than dismiss someone who truly needs support.

I am so proud of our community board. I think we all agreed for once on that thread.
You're a kind compassionate person as were the other posters who tired to offer helpful suggestions and then congratulations. IMO, you and the others should be proud that you cared about someone who you thought needed support.

we once ran into a person who was a very good liar........ sold a friend a horse (across country) & it arrived wrong breed & spray painted!!
she spun a tale of Oh, I'll send you complementing halter/blanket, yada yada, it was a nightmare..


.
Was this an intentional plug for the ShamWow or...?

On Topic - kind of fits with the timing of that budget board post urging people not to give money to tragic thread posters

I have a few more things to get for his stocking but at least I started.
