babblebeth: (me)

These are things that I say and responds I hate people to say to me as a new mother:

Me: "Actually I'm quite tired today/Simon was great and helped me out when I was exhausted yesterday."

People I want to Kick: "You're a mom get used to it/Sleep when he sleeps/Deal with it."

Me to the people I want to kick:  I am not your average mom.  I have a chronic pain condition where one of the major symptoms is CHRONIC FATIGUE!

All new mother's are tired.  I am a bit unusually tired and yes that means sometimes I say I'm tired...but you know what?  EVEN if I didn't have that condition I would still have a right to say "I'm a bit tired today" on occasion.  

Also?  Sleep when he sleeps...yeah right...that works maybe for one nap a day because I do have to do things like...eat....or keep walking around town because I go outside, and I take him and then he naps and I can't curl up on the pavement to have a snooze right then.  Especially when the moment I stop and he wakes up and cries.

My baby is awake and active. "Well leave him he has to get used to being down.  You can do things while he's in his chair."  I KNOW.  I DO put him down and I DO get things done while he is awake and playing but I can't get EVERYTHING done then and he does require a lot of my time.

So yes my house is a bit untidy and I am a bit tired at times.  IT'S ALLOWED.

Now leave me alone.
