Right! I'm hiding in the spare bedroom at the inlaws, breastfeeding our 8 week old and just FUMING.
We travelled back to our home town to visit for Xmas, and ever since being here, DH and MIL expect us to be the ones to visit people who want to meet our LO.
LO is a stickler for her routine, and if she misses a nap, she becomes demon baby and the rest if the day is just a write off.
Plus for me to BF I need to be relaxed and comfortable in a quiet room.. Something I can't do at at unknown houses just yet. And I'm the one who has to calm down LO once she loses it from being overtired.
Why does it have to be us travelling to see them? Packing our baby into the damn hot car, to drive to others houses, after we have already driven 4 hours to be here in the first place? Am I being unreasonable?
DH just said to me: 'oh can we at least go and see so-and-so? They just live around the corner!'
Yep. And we are also 'only around the corner' from them.
God. I'm going to lose it soon! I've told DH my reasoning, tries being tactful, and he said we can't be holed up at home all holidays. No, fair enough, but when we leave the house, is like to pick outings which I enjoy, planned, and feel comfortable doing.
Rant over.. For now..
