2002-01-18 Just a short quick little rant….

I am so sick and tired of people, who have absolutely NO children, writing books, staging seminars and condemning the practices of those of us who HAVE children. Carry my baby with me, on my person, 24 hrs a day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year, for at least four years?? Are you fucking insane?? Have you ever tried to carry a two year old for an extended period of time?? If you have, didn’t you notice that he wanted down?? I just don’t get it. I don’t understand what makes these people experts. What? Because they *watched* some South African Tribe? Now, they have the tools to raise a child?? And ughhhh…know what’s even worse?….People who trust these *experts* over their own instincts!! No wonder the world is fucked up beyond all recognition….get your fucking nose, out of that book, your kid needs some attention!!

you can ignore me now, I’m done

    OOoooooh yes! I can sooo feel your pain. I’m related to one of those experts LOL. She, sans kids, doesn’t only have volumes to say on child raising (ie) how I’m doing it all wrong but her expertise also extends to pithy cutting comments on how to drive (decades after I got my driver’s license and years before she got hers) Note that she added insult to injury by making most of these comments whilst in my vehicle as I played taxi driver to meet her needs and whims. AND I have had one speeding ticket my whole driving carrier and no accidents whilst she’s since written off a car. Other people compliment us on our kids manners and I have some wonderfully honest friends who would be quick to point out any driving deficiencies if they saw them LOL so I take the Related One’s comments with a grain (more like a bucket) of salt. Carrying around a kid for 4 years? you have to be kidding ? Only if you have ambitions of becoming the new Hunchback of Notre Dame 🙂

      Sometimes, even fellow mothers are worse! One day, I was standing on the schoolgrounds with other moms and I was cradling my friend’s 8 month old baby. She’d been teething and not sleeping very well. I was holding her sorta verticle with her head resting just under my left collar bone, she fell fast asleep and I stood there rocking her for about15 minutes. Another woman…who was a mom of 3, turned to my friend and said she shouldn’t let me hold the baby like that, because the baby could hear my heartbeat that way. She said it would cause the baby’s heart beat to slow to the same rate as mine, which could kill the baby. I told her the baby had listened to an adult’s heart for 9 solid months, I’m sure she would be fine.

      Thanks for your story! Why is it that people take it upon themselves to insult us when we’re doing them a favor?
