Say what you like...


-------------------------------------------------------

I think babies are a pain in the butt. They are adorable and sweet and I love my children, but I hate all of the work that new babies require. I hate pumping. I hate sleeping in weird positions so that she can be safe. I hate having to plan what I can do based on whatever the baby is up to.

I am really looking forward to her being a little bit older when a lot of this goes away.

I very strongly dislike my in laws. I think they are selfish and are alot of talk they are "all about the grandchildren" according to them but never seem to be there when it really matters AND I am kinda sick of feeling like my husband is blind to them. I know its his parents but seriously they live 15 minutes away and see my kids maybe once a month!!!

I stay up entirely too late. I tell dh it's because I stay up to clean while it's quiet, but the truth is I usually do absolutely nothing. I just like some quiet alone time.

i'm a bit worried that my marriage isn't going to stay together. we've had a really rough couple of years and having Gemma hasn't helped at all. DH takes a lot of stuff I do personally (it's stupid stuff to me, but he takes it personally) and I can be really mean when I'm in an awful mood. I've sacrificed a lot to keep us together and I would really hate to have wasted so much time and effort just to have us end.

Adi, I hope you guys can get things together. Bob and I had divorce lawyers at year 8. I hope that you guys can stick through the hard times and hopefully get some communication going. /hugs

I ate a whole king size Kit Kat bar the other night while nursing because I was bored. Technically it was Brandon's, but it had been days since he got it and he had a few starburst things in the cupboard too. I did tell him the next morning and he said it was ok. I drink way to much soda since we bought the Soda Stream!

Bob and I haven't had sex since February. And it's not like we don't flirt, we do that alot, but he is totally fine with no sexy time until he is shooting blanks... /sigh

I hate when I'm out with the babies and people ask me "are they twins?" I just smile and politely say yes but most times I just want to say something sarcastic like no one's adopted strange how much they look alike.

You forgot to insert the word "dumba**" after "no".

I can relate to almost all of these. I hate, hate, hate pumping. I feel like such a failure cause I really cannot keep up. I have a freezer stash that I built up before I went back to work that is getting me through, and I'm still hopeful that I'll keep Clara EBF until 6 mos. when we start solids but it is a constant stress of how much did I pump today and how much the stash is dwindling...

Adi - hugs to you. I've been married 17 1/2 years. It ain't easy. We've been to counseling to get through 3 different low periods. At one point I even made the list of divorce attorneys to contact, and drafted how I wanted the settlement to go. There are days now when I still wonder if we will "make" it and finally put divorce completely out of the question forever.

I've come to the conclusion that for us, there is no "making" it - at least not where then you just sit back and everything is rosy for the rest of your life. We married too young for the wrong reasons and as a result we have to work extremely hard to keep our family together. I don't know if any of that applies to you, but my point is that you are not alone, a lot of us struggle, and just because it is hard doesn't mean it isn't worth it. I hope things improve for you and you and your DH find yourselves back in a good place really soon.

I make up words to the sounds of the pump because I get bored.

I think the fast pump to start let down is, "Mushroom mushroom mushroom mushroom mushroom mushroom mushroom mushroom mushroom mushroom mushroom mushroom mushroom mushroom."

(badger badger)

Do you then go 'Snake, it's a snake' ? How sad that I read that and said to myself, that should be badger, not mushroom! :-)

I will try this tomorrow....hopefully it's not something my coworkers will hear while I'm in the 'wellness' room...

I like how my company calls it the 'wellness' room....I get looks from the younger set (we have interns right now) that think I go to sleep in there then come out after 30 minutes...

Okay... maybe I do go to sleep in there for about 15min...

Ours are called quiet rooms and they all (we have three, large building) smell inexplicably like chili powder.

At least you had an area to go to. I didn't and when I complained about that, my supervisor told me I could use her office. Yeah...the one with the HUGE window and blinds that didn't shut all the way. Oh and did I mention that this is the ground floor?

I still hate that I'm not breast feeding and I am still not over the guilt. Soon.

I'm worried about my oldest. He is starting a new school this year...one that is more equipped to handle him. He is gifted and autistic and quite the handful! I've been stressing as of late about this. I'm also paranoid about the new babe. I love my oldest son to pieces! I wouldn't change a thing about him but at the same time...I really want Georgie to be "normal" and I feel bad for even thinking that.

Girl, my oldest is severely autistic and my son is both gifted and autistic... I am also wishing for a normal child and I don't feel guilty, hang in there.

I like this thread. I really thought that having a new baby (#2) would be hard and I couldn't wait until they get older like Noah is (2.5 years old), but now that I have her, I think the total opposite. Most days with Noah make me want to pull my brains out. A 2 year old is way harder than a baby. Are all toddlers like this or just mine??? Seriously I just lose my patience with him so easily. I would never hit him or verbally abuse him but sometimes I have to send him to his room until we both settle down. I hope he grows out of this phase.
