I’m just venting for a second.
Most of the people in our lives have been beyond amazing since we came home with Roo. We’ve felt so supported. But the few that have been less than amazing are driving me a little nuts.
Last week I was taken to task for not returning phone calls fast enough and not taking the initiative to be the first to call. Have we met? Do you remember that I am ALWAYS terrible about returning phone calls? And that I have a new baby and just went back to work?
This morning someone who was very graciously taking care of Roo for part of the day got pissed at me because I asked her if she needed me to show her how to put the car seat in her car. Okay, so she was someone who obviously doesn’t need a lesson, but this was the first time since we’ve had Roo that he’s been in the car with anyone besides me or NSG driving, and I’m still not used to leaving him with someone else. And car accidents are my worst nightmare. Was it really too much for her to just humor me, or at least laugh in my face about my neurotic new parent anxiety instead of getting mad?
Cut a girl a little slack, okay? It’s not about you. My head is still firmly planted in my new-Mama ass.
Petty self-righteousness, over and out.
