hurt from what I overheard

I live with my,mom. I have a job but since maternity leave I haven't been able to work until I find childcare. My mom says shell watch my dd but when my job calls to see if I can work that day she seems to always have an excuse. My dd father isn't in,the picture. I really have no friends the ones I do have no longer live in this area. And on top,of that my car broke down. The transmission among other things I just recently sold it for 1000 so I have about 3000 saved up.


Flash forward to today.,I have really thick hair and it takes me a LONG time to wash and style my hair. My dd is on,me constantly, will,only sleep on me so it's hard to find any time for,myself. It's been like 2 Weeks since I could wash my hair (I know gross) so I just gave in and put,my baby in her vibrating chair thingy and took a shower and washed my hair. WELL 15mins into dd is hollerin. I wasn't mad at her but irritated at my mom because she heard her but didn't get up. Now my hair is soaking wet and soapy. I went in,living room where my mom was talking on the phone and I got her swing to put in doorway and I overheard my,mom say oh,she's a good mom but just doesn't have the patience z(my baby) didn't ask to be born. My mom is always telling me how I'm a good mom and that I always have a lot of patience. She really hurt my feelings and made me cry : ( my dd was just tired she is sleeping now while I hold her.
Sorry so long just had to vent. And also my phone adds in a lot of unnecessary commas and periods.

That's rude. But for your sake and the baby's, she has to learn how to sleep not on you. She may cry but she will learn to sleep on her own. If she cries for a little while it will not hurt her. As long as you check on her and she's not hungry or has a dirty diaper, it's ok to cry. It's hard to do but it is best for everyone.

A very big hug !!!! How old is your baby? Have you tried finding day care centers around you that go off your income? This way since you aren't working it should be free and if you don't make too much in 6 months to a 1 year when they review it should be low cost. Sorry  that your mom isn't as supportive as you would like her to be.

She will be 4 months on the 18th.Thanks ill look into it. Where did you find them? I applied for early start but she has to go on the waiting list and can take up to a year but hopefully itll be sooner and I find somewhere else to put her in in the meantime.
