FML - The follow-up

Today, I held a party for my family so I could announce my pregnancy. In the middle of my speech, my mother stopped me, saying, "Nobody gives a rat's ass, where's the booze?" FML

opherehehhehe Say more :
The speech took less than 2 minutes, it was a brief message thanking everyone for coming and how me and my husband greatly appreciate it. The party was the only way to gather my whole family. A dinner reservation would cost hundreds of dollars considering the size of my family. My brother just led my mother out and we carried on. Yes, we did supply a little wine but be didn't want a lot of alcohol considering I am pregnant and I don't want anyone drunk. Just clearing it up (:

She's just looking out for the health of your baby. Now that you can't consume your alcohol, your mom just wants to remove it from your home for safety's sake. You are blessed to have a mom who will "take one for the team!"

Hm. Threw a party for yourself? Speech? While your mom doesn't sound like the most nurturing lady around, I'm not getting the feeling that you suffer from low self esteem...

17- I was thinking that. surely a phone call saying 'i'm having a baby' would have sufficed? i intend on posting pictures of the scan to my family saying 'hi grandma/grandad/whatever!' but i think throwing a party just to announce it is a bit extravagant

'fraid I'm in the 17/25 camp here. Maybe it's the British reserve talking, but OP's approach seems slightly dramatic. I'd rather hear this from my nearest and dearest directly and personally, not as part of an audience... She can always throw a celebratory party afterwards.

You should have just said "Go home mom, you're drunk" and continued on. Seriously though while she may not agree, that was pretty rude. Tell her to save shit like that for when in private.
