Good morning mamas!
Liz, hope you are doing o.k.
Thanks for the support on the MIL issue, and those that have wonderful MIL's you are soooo lucky!
The time change is awful for us. Buns was up until almost 2 am, but back to sleep now. We were going to go to a NFL meeting, a new group for us,but that isn't going to happen.
Yesterday was a really lazy day. I made some sweet potato bread, and buns tried some mashed sweet potato before I made the bread, she had this look on her face like "are you trying to poison me?" and gagged a couple times, so we stopped. This was the first solid food she hasn't really liked, I wonder if it could be the texture? She loved bananas, avacados, b.nut squash and pumpkin...We were going to go for a walk but it was raining, so all of us relaxed. I am reading "the gift of fear" and loving the information.
FF- I love the materials you are using. I too do not like having to deal with those comments. I am going to talk to my sweetie (he is a sweetie!) about talking to his Mom about buns. I really can not stand for people to talk about a baby/child like they don't exist or just because they can not talk they don't understand. I do NOT want her growing up with an eating disorder, or feeling bad about herself. I also am tired of his Mother (who was a social worker and for some reason thinks that makes her an child expert) trying to tell us what to do, or rather tell me what to do. She has made several comments about buns not having a pacifier, and also is always saying that "babies need spend time alone so they can learn to be independent" Whatever. It is getting reaaaly old.
Part of the issue is that she has never offered to help us with anything. Nada. Ever. But then wants us to do things for her, so my relationship with her isn't great to begin with, so it isn't easy for me to take her crap. Not that it would be, but when there is already and existing issue, it makes it worse. The day after we had buns, she brought over beer for her and DH, you know because of all the hard work he had to do. GRRRR. And (I am sure I have complained about this before because it makes me so angry) made several rude comments (this is about 18 hrs. after giving birth so I am not looking so good) about my body, and when I said I loved being a Mom she said "don't write the book it has only been one day" and wanted me (again, right after having buns) to come and help her paint her new house. WTF? Sooo, as you can see the woman is not easy to deal with.
I shouldn't even get started on my in-laws I can't shut up about how weird they are.
We didn't do too much last week, it was nice having DH home, but today when buns wakes up I am going to run some errands, pick up some meds for our sweet pup and try and go to the Body Shop. I need some face lotien and body butter. I just can't stand going to the mall so I have put it off.
Have a wonderful day you great Moms.
FF, I hope you get that ceiling fixed.
