So I HATE those family decals where there is a stick person for each member of the family. It's like the family is rubbing it in that they had this perfect little family....cuz you know that is the whole reason they put them on their car to annoy me. ;p
Well the other day driving to C's school I saw a car decal that read, " my father created heaven and earth. What did your dad do?" I wanted to roll down the window and say well my son's dad made the most unselfish decision a father can make and let his son stop suffering and pulled him off of life support when your father wouldn't answer any of our prayers.
Then a little ways down the road i see one that got me just as worked up. It said, "Got Twins?"
Why does everyone feel the need to put this stuff on their cars? Of course I saw the twin decal on a car that was pulling into my son's school and I wanted to respond to her sticker...but I didn't. But I really wanted too....
So this year I am getting my own stickers: the first one I want to find is a March of Dimes one. Does the MOD have window stickers? If everyone else can advertise their charities and runs, and everything else..
I also got my husband a sticker for his stocking that says, 0.0 I don't run. ( sorry to all the marathon runners reading this just find that sticker really funny) I found my friend one that says, 28.2 and it reads, I got lost. =)
Those car stickers get to me too. I was actually wondering if they make ones with little angel wings or maybe a butterfly - who knows, they seem to make everything. I saw a license plate the other day that said some shortened version of "twins twice." Of course I should be happy for these random strangers, but it felt more like a slap in the face. The marathon stickers you got sound adorable. I'd be the 0.0 one too!
Yeah, I see those car stickers too. When I've thought about doing them on our own car, I've wondered if they also have some with wings or halos. That would really make some people stop and think as they scanned the car. MOD does have car magnets online or at a table at your next walk. I think they were around $5 maybe. I hear you though. Those decals can sting a bit especially on the bad days.
I have a MOD car magnet! They do sell them online, if you want you can get extras and sell them as a fundraiser item for your MFB team. Just FYI. I have seen some websites that do make stickers for Angel babies. I personally don't like stickers on my car period but if your into that.
I totally get it. It's hard to make the rest of the world realize what we go thru and what types of things trigger that emotional responses. The marathon sticker are funny. :) super cute!
I know its so hard when it seems everyones perfect familynis thrown in your face on a daily basis but ibtrybtobremind myself that had we not struggled with infertility and then lost skykar perhaps i could have beennone ofvthose people and to be honest as sensitivebas i want to be i also know thstbif ournivf works i will likely turn into one of those preg chicks posting about her blessing constantly on fb. Many hugs btw i have seen some of those decals that have stick figure angels
LOL---the running stickers are hilarious!!! I need the 0:0 for myself!!
I'm not a fan of the family stickers myself. I'm hoping the fad will fade soon enough so that I can gripe about something else. Yes, MOD does have window stickers. They use to be printed by cafepress.com, but now sure if they still are.
I HATE THOSE FAMILY STICKERS! TO me its like those perfect pintrest who have the perfect life and the perfect children and blast it all over FB! many many hugs to you dear friend , so glad Im not the only one who wants to scream when I see them! *Samantha
I hate them too, seriously. So nice that you want to advertise your 'perfectness', but what about those of us who won't have that? I'm getting really tired of our society. I am glad you found some fun stickers to gift though.
