My partner’s family has spent the last 2 days worshiping his 3 year old niece.

She doesn’t eat cereal. She is AMAZING when she eats cereal.

Her dress isn’t nice. She’s THE BEST PRINCESS EVER! (in a denim jumper….)

She shits and practically gets a standing ovation.

Everyone danced in a circle with her in the middle.

Are you pissed because they aren't complementing your denim jumper, OP?

by Anonymousreply 1November 26, 2021 1:50 AM

You know what must be done, right OP??

Stop competing with a baby.

You’re jealous of three year old?

I'm sorry your self esteem is this low that you can't stand this attention on a toddler.

Op eats cereal with a panache that dilettante couldn't DREAM of.

Use all your powers to nip this crap in the bud; petulance is just around the corner.

A quiet aside to the little attention whore that she’s not so fucking special lets her know you’ve got her number.

My 23-year old niece was doted on and showered with praise for every little thing as a child. She was the queen of "Look at meeee, aren't I cute?"

She's recently cut off all contact with her parents because "they never loved me."

Dancing in a circle is where I'd draw a line. Next time bring edibles and you won't care.

Maybe if you shit and let them watch they'd worship you too, OP.

Is she the only grandchild, or only so far, OP?

Get used to it (and the idea that you're probably putting her through school).

What family doesn't worship a three-year-old among them?

by Anonymousreply 15November 26, 2021 2:11 AM

Do they have a basement?

OP, I understand. It's annoying.

They'll turn on her eventually.

by Anonymousreply 18November 26, 2021 2:17 AM

My in-laws did this when their first grandchild was born. Her initial public appearance was on her 1 month birthday and everyone except me spent the afternoon taking turns holding her and watching her sleep, which is all she did the whole time. I said what I always say when someone offers me a baby to hold: "Oh no, thanks but I'd be afraid to drop her!" and went out in the backyard with the cat (who'd been banished from the house) to inspect the garden.

by Anonymousreply 19November 26, 2021 2:17 AM

R14, no she’s not the only grandchild. But the other 3 are 12+. Everything they do is measured against the 3 year old. The oldest just got a full scholarship to college. Grandma congratulated him by text and compared him to the 3 year old niece who “counted to 62 today! You’re both smart!”

Sounds like fun. Little kids are about the best thing in the world besides bacon

by Anonymousreply 21November 26, 2021 2:37 AM

Let's see. You will need to make a garrotte, get some pineapple, a pen and paper. Do any of the other kids have feces smearing experience by chance? Do you have contact with a small foreign faction? Most of all you will need a bumbling police department.

Maybe she'd enjoy a cruise?

I also received a lot of attention when I was a child

My favorite thing about these threads is seeing how many DLers are terrified of babies.

by Anonymousreply 33November 26, 2021 5:53 AM

I do agree with OP. It's boring to sit around fawning over some baby. Just doesn't make for an interesting dinner conversation.

by Anonymousreply 34November 26, 2021 2:26 PM

I enjoy that OP thought he would post this and get all sorts of sympathy and "poor little you" pats on the back and, instead, he's getting his voluminous ass handed to him.

by Anonymousreply 35November 26, 2021 2:32 PM

It could be worse: they could be going on and on this much about their dog.

by Anonymousreply 36November 26, 2021 2:33 PM

Does sound boring, OP.

by Anonymousreply 37November 26, 2021 4:59 PM

Don’t know if this applies here, but it cracks me up when those who were less than demonstrative parents coo and roll around on the carpet with the next generation babies.

Meanwhile their own adult children stand around wondering who the hell this guy that LOOKS like my dad is.

by Anonymousreply 38November 26, 2021 5:13 PM

Absolutely no one cares, OP. Grow up.

Why do you think that happens, R38? Grandparents learned patience from being parents? Loss of inhibitions? Showing off to their children: I wasn't such a bad father, etc.?

by Anonymousreply 40November 26, 2021 5:23 PM

What a disturbing title for this thread. It makes it sound like dad, grandma and cousin Charlie were on their knees sucking her toes and licking her soles.

I wish I could unsee that.

No, R36. Dogs are interesting -- so are cats, and rabbits, and birds, and lizards, and fish, and livestock -- it's human babies that are boring. All the other animals develop quickly and do stuff that's fun to watch -- babies just lie there and yell for months on end. Tedious little critters, I don't know what some people see in them.

by Anonymousreply 46November 26, 2021 7:55 PM

Oh please. Try marrying into an Irish Catholic family. My partner has 8brothers and sisters, all of whom have at least 2 kids. They make all of this crotch fruit the extreme center of attention at every family gathering, it’s maddening. The hysterical screaming delights the in-laws to no end!

by Anonymousreply 47November 26, 2021 8:14 PM

R47, one would think that the novelty would wear off after the first few of the 16! kids.

by Anonymousreply 48November 26, 2021 11:28 PM

R47 your hysterical screaming must be epic.

by Anonymousreply 49November 26, 2021 11:38 PM

R46, newsflash, three year olds aren't babies. In fact, a three year old fits your fun description exactly.

I really hope the little genius toddler looked around to make sure no one was looking and then turned to OP and slowly gave him the finger with a shit-eating grin and a giggle.

Toddlers are just like little drunk people. They can barely talk, slur their words, barely walk, lack social cues, always falling, and piss and shit all over themselves.

No thanks!

by Anonymousreply 52November 26, 2021 11:51 PM

Indeed, R52. They're not boring in the same way infants are, now they're obnoxious -- as you say, much like drunks.

True. Nice crisp bacon doesn't have the stringy, fatty texture of your average toddler.
