Ever since my daughter has been born people have been contradicting everything I say. If I say I'm not spoiling my daughter, they say I am. If I say her hair is thick, they say it's thin. If I say she's not chunky, they disagree with me and point to the rolls in her thighs.
It's an endless cycle that does nothing more than piss me off. Don't you think that the one person that knows her own child best is her mother? Don't you think that the one person who knows what is best for her own child is her mother?
I understand some mothers feel the need to push their thoughts and advice on others. I know some mothers have good intentions and hope their words of wisdom will ease some suffering or sleepless night.
But the others are just attempting (and successfully) pissing me off. The others want nothing more than to brag or put you down in order to make them feel superior.
I know what vegetables are best for her. I know her sleeping routine best. I know what pisses her off, calms her down and just what spot to tickle to make her laugh.
This mother does not need your unsolicited advice or suggestions. This mother does not have any desire to compete with you or your star-child. This mother does not care if said star-child can speak eight different languages. This mother is happy with her child just as she is and everything about her daughter makes her blissfully happy.
So please, if you see us walking down the street and you're tempted to comment on how crooked my daughter's pigtails are or that the shoes she is wearing aren't conducive to proper foot growth, please don't. Or that my roots are showing or that I have snot on my clothes, keep it to yourself.
I honestly could care less.
