    Default Dear.... (vent thread :)

    Dear DH,

    I'm not sure how me telling you I don't want to be the only one watching DS while we're out tonight ended up being a fight about me not supporting your heavy workload and how my life is so cruisy because I "only work 3 out of 7 days a week".

    I love that I've had to get up several times a night for the past 18 months, and you haven't. I love that I'm the only one who changes DSs nappies and baths/dresses him. I love that you expect me to make/keep the house pristine for you with an energetic, inquisitive toddler in tow on the days that I don't work. I love that you do what you want, when you want, and I have to tie you down to watch DS so I can do something like have a shower or pop to the shops (NEVER anything like go to the hair dressers, go out with friends, or anything for myself).

    Thanks for ruining my night. I can't even drown my sorrows because you've gone out and, once again, left our child with me.

    Go f#@k yourself.

    Dear Strangers,

    Yes, I'm huge. Yes, it really is a girl. Yes, I'm due soon. Telling me I haven't dropped enough/look like I'm having a boy/will go overdue FOR SURE/look tired is, surprisingly, not helpful.

    Yes, I'm sure there is only one baby. Thank you for making me feel even bigger.

    I have dropped. I can breath again. Trust me, I know.

    I have had two ultrasounds confirming gender and have a cupboard full of dresses and pink stuff. DO NOT try to tell me you know better!

    Telling someone with SPD that thy may have another two + weeks is devastating.

    I look tired because I AM tired. You try being this big and waking, sometimes in tears, because you move wrong in your sleep. Then factor in the many bathroom trips at night, the general insomnia. You telling me I look tired is not resulting in a lightbulb moment for me, this is not news. Would you like being told you look tired, too? Or old? Or bloated?

    also- do not touch my belly. Yuck.

    Pink used to be considered the most masculine colour, it's just popular culture that decided it was a girl colour hehe

    Dear Time,
    Please hurry up, I miss my partner after not seeing him for a month and a half. 23 hours away feels like a life time though. =/

    Dear everyone who ever asks,
    Yes, I do want kids. No, I don't know when I'm having them because it requires a lot more forplanning than you apparently do, if all you guys need is to have s3x and bam out a baby pops. Yes, it is a sore point for me.

    Dear everyone else,
    I aam well aware I'm ONLY 22 and shouldn't WANT kids yet. I'm so hapy for you, that your three precious darlings were surprises, or you fell pregnant first or second or third time around. I'm just as happy that you've never had to experience the physical annd psychological affects of multiple miscarriages have. I'm even happier that you've never had your relationship disintegrate because of it and never had to watch yor partner look like his entire world just collapsed when the doctor says "I'm afraid it looks like you're miscarrying". but you know what I'm not happy when you tell me I'm ONLY 22, that I have my WHOLE life ahead of me, that it'll happen when it''s supposed to, that you're glad I had a miscarriage so I'm not now a single mum because it's so hard, that maybe my multiple miscarriages were blessings in disguise and meant there was something else I was supposed to be doing.

    Dear facebook friends,
    I'm stokd you're pregnant, really, I am. The grin is so big I'm fairly sure it's gonna crack my face. But when I see you, please don't make me feel your stomach, or constantly talk about the baby. I know you're excited. I am too, promise, but I don't think it's needful at the moment.

    Dear DP,
    I know you don't fully understand WHY I react the way I do. I love you very very much. But sometimes, you're a blockhead. And stop losing my engagement ring. Dumbarse.


    Okay, I feel kinda better now. Whew.

    Default Dear.... (vent thread :)

    Jennaisme, I have had the strongest heart wrenching ache since 19 to be a mummy, throughout a relationship with a man that we eventually found out COULDN'T have kids, due to his selfish, immature and irresponsible lifestyle choices that ultimately ended our relationship.


    Don't worry what anyone says about your age! Do what makes YOU happy x

    Dear mum,

    Thank you so much for lying to me. I've been sick as a dog for 3 weeks now, husband has been working over 16 hours a day because we need the money and I am desperate for a little but of help and you lied and said you already had plans. I rarely ask for help, my kids haven't been away from us in over 5 months and you know how sick I have been, how could you turn your back on me and not only not help me but LIE to me when I really needed you. You've ruined my trust in you. I thought mums were meant to help their kids when they needed it.
