Mum-to-be cancels baby shower after family mocks unique name
An angry mum-to-be has decided to cancel her baby shower after she discovered her friends and family were mocking the name she has chosen for her unborn son behind her back.
The post, which was originally posted on Facebook, has been shared to a forum on Reddit and shows the woman going on a furious rant about her family’s behaviour.
She calls out those who are questioning her sanity for wanting to name her son Squire Sebastian Senator.
The rant starts off with an explanation as to why the event has been cancelled.
“It brings me pain to have to tell you this, but I am cancelling the event. I will text you soon if you’re invited to my smaller, more inclusive party. At least here no one will judge me,” she said.
“Why? Why am I doing this?
“Because ya’ll have been talking sh*t about my unborn baby. AN UNBORN CHILD. How can you judge an unborn child? What is wrong with you?”
She then went on to accuse her family and friends of spreading rumours about her because the name isn’t according to their taste.
“No, I am not crazy. No, I am not mentally unstable. No, I was not drunk when I named my child,” she said. “His name is Squire Sebastian Senator. That is that.”
The name, which according to the expectant mother is inspired by family history, is expected to be said in full. No nicknames allowed.
“You cannot force me to change his name. This is the name I was meant to give him.
“No this is not his full name. Squire Sebastian Senator is only his first name. This is how it will be. He will not be allowed to have a nickname, he is to be called by his full and complete first name.”
Clearly taken aback by her family’s “judgemental” actions, the woman went on to further explain her reasoning behind the unique name.
“We come from a long line of both squires and senators,” she said. “If you look back in our family tree, the survival of this clan is literally rooted in squiredom. We are all related to senators too.
“This name conveys power. It conveys wealth. It conveys success.”
“My baby’s name WILL be a revolution,” she went on to say. “It will push people to question everything.”
The enraged mother also revealed that she will instead be having an intimate baby shower, which is “more inclusive” with those who support her reasoning behind the name.
“F**k you all. Fake ass family,” she wrote. “You won’t get to be a part of my baby’s life and it’s all because you had to judge him.”
