Does anyone else get annoyed by this?

Does anyone else get annoyed and not know what to say when someone asks "how's it feel to have a baby" "did you ever think you'd have a baby" "How's it feel to have a one year old"? I have no idea what to tell people most of the time I just tell them I feel the same as I did before or if it's someone I know I just tell them I hate those questions and don't answer.

  • If they have kids, I would say "well you've been there! You remember don't you?" If they don't have kids of their own and you trust them, then I would hand your baby over to them and say " hold this, now your holding my heart in your hands, don't drop it"

  • It bothers me only bc the people who ask me seem to expect me to say how hard it is and how I'm barely hanging on. Which it not the truth. It's mostly DH's mom and sister. When normal people ask I really don't mind.

  • I think that people just want to talk about the baby and don't know how to start the conversation. Like when someone gets married and you see them you just say " so how is married life" it is like how are you doing....don't really expect any certain answer, but just showing you care about what is going on in their life. Don't expect anything deep! Just keep it light!
