Mom to three boys 7/7/00 11/20/02 and 10/29/2011
Writing at: http://paisleymama.blogspot.com/ and other places!
I'm a dad... So everything I do/don't do when it comes to my children is perceived as a sign of my incapability when it comes to kids. Hat, not hat, shoes, no shoes... I could dress my baby exactly the same as the other persons and I would get a comment for something I've done wrong...
So yeah, I feel your pain!
Yeah, I'm with you, and thanks for putting this up there....
here's mine.... I was in San Fran, in a dep. store, with my mother visiting, she had gone to check out some shoes just a little way away, I was B. feeding my then 2 month old DD, while my son was cuddling me, and I think he was trying to get a better hold, and whining a bit, he was 23 months at the time, and an old lady was coming close, looking at me. i thought she was going to chastise me for showing skin/some other crime (I was being discreet), but when she opened her mouth, the unexpected came out.... "Rather you than me".... well I'm NOT quick witted - I always think of THE come back once they're MILES away!, but THIS time, I said "me, too". Ha.
I really don't normally delight in other peoples' displeasure/pain, but it had irked me. It was 1 irk too much.
Hey ho. I have had a couple of others, mostly to do with my son's speech delay and shyness, but I usually let it go.
I know. What's up with that?!
When DD was born (our first), DH went to lift her and cradle her. The MW, MW apprentice, and doula all exclaimed, "Careful of her head!" He hadn't even touched her yet.
The same thing happened after DS was born. "Watch her head!" Um, he's already a dad. I THINK he knows how to pick up a newborn.
There's probably no way to quantify this, but I'll bet that guys get is a lot worse than the mamas.
