”When my baby was his age he was already crawling/ talking/ graduating.” New moms worry enough that their baby is progressing as he/ she should without these people recollecting their child prodigy.
Oh hes a terror, screams the house down constantly and I havent slept in 16 weeks.(Could you imagine the face if you actually said that?) Luckily for me A is great and doesn’t do any of these things (most of the time) but I imagine if he did and some one asked ”is he sleeping through the night yet?” I would either punch them or cry.
Obviously I dont swing A by the ankles but seriously opinions to yourselves people. Most moms know what’s best for their own child. I remember watching something on the TV a few years ago where a little boy had a skin condition where if he sweat he would lose his skin (I think? It was a long time ago but something happened when he sweat). This meant that even in the Autumn months his Mom would have him in just a T-shirt which of course invited many stares and voiced opinions from onlookers who just saw ‘bad parenting’. Makes you think huh? Perhaps they’re actually doing whats best already.
Gee thanks! Of course I’m tired I have this tiny human who takes up all of my time now. I also managed to order one who snores quite loudly and grunts in his sleep so when I do get to bed he wakes me up a couple of times a night ‘honking’.
Oh wait until hes climbing on everything.. Wait until hes pulling your clothes out of the wardobe.. Wait until hes bare knuckle boxing a tiger.
Seriously? When you’re pregnant they tell you the first few weeks are the hardest.. you get over those only to be slaped in the face with the fact that it actually gets WORSE! I only get to brush my hair every second day, all my clothes are stained, my house looks like the field after electric picnic and you’re saying I havent hit rock bottom yet? Delightful.
Ok so You’ve basically told me that my child has the brain of a potato compared to your genius, questioned my motherly instinct, insulted my appearance, shattered my dream of normality returning anywhere in the near future and you want to know when I am subjecting myself to this again?
30 weeks on and these are still being asked – worse still by other mothers! Do they not know Mom code?!
