    Default Getting called one of "those" mothers... So annoying!

    I get called one of 'THOSE' mothers and I haven't even had my baby yet!
    But women are judgmental beaches so I don't expect any less

    I agree that I think it can be a bit off to specify what type of presents you want on a birthday invitation. I have to admit that I would probably have something to say about that, although I wouldn't say it in front of the host!

    My automatic reaction can be a bit of an inward eyeroll (which sounds painful) when people say that they 'only' use wooden/ sustainable material toys. I've been party to a lot of conversations where people have said things like "Oh, DD's grandma keeps buying her all this plastic cr*p, which we don't have in the house, but I found this perfect wooden/ natural material XYZ which is SO much nicer." As someone who is perfectly happy for my child to have toys made of all materials it can sometimes across as a bit self-righteous to me. I accept it isn't always this way though.

    I do agree with you about people not respecting different choices from their own, and it's not nice to feel on the receiving end of the raised eyebrow!

    (BTW - whenever I see your user name I think yummmm.... unagi....)

    The wooden gift thing was put on the invitation a lot more politely than what I made out... It was added as a "gift idea" that would be "greatly appreciated" which I thought was a nice way to put it. I couldn't find any affordable wooden toys so I bought clothes (which they loved!), no biggie.

    Yes, I think it goes both ways. Those who use natural products can look down on those who use chemicals, and vice versa.

    This is what I'm talking about, why can't we all just get along? LOL

    I use natural cleaning and baby products, but use sposies. But who cares? As long as our babies are happy and healthy, does all the other crap really matter?

    Kmart has some great wooden toys at very reasonable prices. I bought my dd a wooden tea set for $12 and some wooden puzzles for $3 recently.
