You know who is really annoying?
First time parents.
Okay, calm down, before you get your panties all in a knot, I want you to know that I am also including myself in this generalization.
Now, before I lump all of us in the same category there are some really normal first time parents out there. You know, the ones that don’t even freak out over eating raw fish while pregnant.
Secretly, I want to call Child and Family Services whenever I see a pregnant woman with a glass of wine. I just do, I can’t help it. It’s the little Miss Goody Two Shoes in me.
Back to “first time parents”….
How did my friends with children stand me? From the moment I was pregnant all I did was talk stupid talk.
I even remember saying the following stupid things….
“Can we just stop off at my house first, I forgot to take my prenatal vitamin today.”
“Is that kitty litter? My baby can die from me smelling kitty litter.”
I didn’t know I was annoying until I took a Prenatal Yoga class. First of all, I don’t even know why I was taking a prenatal yoga class while pregnant with Baby Bot. I had no time for it. I was too overwhelmed with working and taking care of Whirlwind to go all “namaste” for an hour.
The other women in the class seemed to be a bit more into it. Probably because it was the first pregnancy and all you do during your first pregnancy is nap, eat ice cream, browse baby bedding websites and write letters to your future baby.
They hardly spoke to me once they found out I was pregnant with my second child. And in their defense, I remember doing the same thing to other Mom’s. I wanted to be in my own little self centred world of” first time” Momma’s.
You already have a kid? Well, that’s your own damn fault. Not mine.
I remember meeting Mommy #3 after my first was born. I asked her why she didn’t come to the Mommy Group, “Baby and Me”. She looked at me like she wanted to kill me.
And I never got it. What was her deal?
Basically, I never really wanted to be her friend anyways.
I have a baby.
She had kids.
