Setting the Record Straight or Crossing a Line? 🧐

So, our mom-to-be found herself in a baby shower showdown when her MIL, Janet, made a snide remark about her not being able to carry on the family legacy with a boy. Frustrated and hormonal, she clapped back by explaining that having a boy actually depends on the father's sperm, not the mother. While her husband found it amusing and agreed that Janet needed a reality check, other family members accused her of humiliating Janet unnecessarily. Now, she's questioning if she crossed a line or if she was justified in setting the record straight. Let's see what the internet has to say about this baby shower drama... 🍿
