hurt from what I overheard

Posted by   + Show Post
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.

You gotta be around someone with lice to get lice. They don't magically appear just cause you don't wash your hair.

If she is used to being held while sleeping then it is going to take some time to break her from the habit...Not cool of your mother to offer help then deny it when you need it & to make the comments she did, good luck!
