I need to vent!
I have these friends (a couple) who had a kid over a year ago... they used to be the ones who were ever-so-learned on the subject and would offer people advice on how to raise their kids. When I was pregnant, they knew exactly what to do about everything, what to take, what not to take, it's like they were obsessed with pregnancy! ...they knew all about baby products, knew every home remedy out there, when my son was born they showed me (insisted on showing me, rather), how to dress and change him... etc.
Fast forward to today, they now have their own baby.... these people don't have the first clue about children!! I feel almost lied to!! It's almost like when you see Jack Hanna appear as a guest on late night tv and the host tries to bottle feed an animal of a species he's never even seen before!
At first I thought it was because they were new parents, frazzled and their baby had colic (at this point, I'm doubting it was even colic, just thinking the kid was crying out for different parents)... they still can't feed or dress him, they carry him under their arms like a football, they just pass him off to random strangers at parties and take off to the other side of the house (we're talking wine and cheese parties, not raging keggers, but still...), when I saw his carseat (he's over 1 and still in an infant carrier), he's totally outgrown the straps and the shoulder straps now just kind of go around his upper arms instead of over his shoulders...
There is no point to this thread, I just need to vent about all this stuff and I can't say anything to my other friends because they'll find out... I'm going insane!
If anyone is wondering, I have told them about the carseat, they keep saying they have the new one ready they just have to put it in and they'll do it the next day... that hasn't happened.
