"I bet you don't even remember what life was like before her!"

A relative said this to me today. My daughter was born on April 30, so she's 1 1/2 months old. She is my little angel and I adore her. But what my relative said seemed so strange to me, like I was really supposed to forget everything over a period of a month and a half. Maybe it's not supposed to be taken literally?

Haven't you heard that phrase before??? People say it all the time. It is not meant to be rude or an insult. How old are you??

Nineteen. I didn't consider it rude or an insult. Just a bit odd. That's why I'm asking if maybe I took it too literally or something. Why the taken offense?

It is because you are 19 and don't know this is a normal phrase. My youngest is 19.

Quoting KayceeKC:

It just is a way of saying that babys take up a lot of time. So much so in the beginning all your able to do is baby things. No time for yourself. Its kinda saying they understand the energy infants take. ;-)
