Babies: 3 - 6 Months

DAAAAMN. Blair got ZINGED.

One of her real life friends called her OUT in the comments section of her blog.  It all makes a lot more sense now.

WOW.

Re: DAAAAMN. Blair got ZINGED.

  • Whats the link to her blog?  Everyone is always talking so highly of her and I've always wanted to check it out but she's never on when I am so I can't ever find it. 

     

    Thanks.

  • I love reading her blog.  I don't do it very often, but it is interesting.  I like her writing style.
  • I think it's just sad, for her and her family.  If it's true, I hope she will step back and take a look at it.

    Ditto.

  • I thought her blog was great when she was pregnant but now it just bugs me.  I stay at home right now with DD, my husband is also home most of the time and I barely find the time to bump with all the snuggling, diaper changes, feeding and staring :)  at my child that I do.  I think the article she references hits home and stung her so she jumped to defend herself before anyone else could say, "Hey Blair, this reminds me of you".

    Her PPD is a huge deal and if I had those thoughts about my child- I would shut everything off in my life until I figured it out- not run to the tattoo parlor or whore my diagnosis out to get more "pay per clicks".  I have lost all interest in her as a mother and now her blog plays much like a train wreck to me.

  • I think that post by her "friend" is sad and disgusting.  With friends like that, who needs enemies?!

    I completely agree.  As her "friend," she should have had the nerve to say it (a lot more kindly) to her face.  Why would a "friend" post something like that all over the internet.  Also, if she is struggling with PPD (not saying she isn't, just haven't ever really talked to her enough to have any idea) I would really hope that her "friends" would support her.  And YES, everyone does need time to themselves regardless of how much they love their child(ren).

    I kept thinking the same thing.  I am a SAHM and don't even have time away from my LO to run around for hours w/ girlfriends.  I DO get out - but with other moms...WITH the babies!  She was a really funny pregnant blogger, but I've been pretty turned off too.  Since the baby was born it all rings false to me.  I was shocked that she kept blogging after the PPD thing.

    Her friend basically said any time someone brings it up to her she gets defensive and won't listen.  Maybe a public call-out is what she needed.  Some people listen to a tap on the shoulder, some need a brick.  It sucks, but you don't know the situation. 

  • Do you know the situation?  Either way, I think this is the wrong way to go about it.  What if she really does have PPD...with a "call-out" like that, she may be afraid to discuss her feelings in the future.  What if she's having a really bad day one day, but she knows that she can't call on her friends because this is the type of thing she has to look forward to?

    I read that but I still don't find it acceptable. I think there is no reason for that.  I would stop being someone's friend before I would hide behind a fake name and bash them.  I mean isn't she doing the same thing she is fussing at Blair about....getting involved in the drama.

    I haven't followed Blairs blog.  I've heard nothing but the most highest remarks about her since I joined TB community during 2nd tri.  Then?  I never understood the hype.  Yeah, she was funny, but I never understood her following.  So checking out her blog, eh whatever, didn't tempt me (though, I have always been intrigued by WHY people are so fasinated with this Bumpie).  Now?  I just did a quick glimpse at her blog (after starting my own, I finally became intrigued enough to find out why her blog is so damn popular) and I STILL don't get it.  Honestly?  I think she's hiding behind this image that she's creating. I think she's so caught up in "Blair" that she has no idea how to fix her own life.  I also think that her friends have realized that this is the only way to get her to listen.  To call out "Blair" is to get the root of the problem.  Whoever "Blair" really is, is lost in this fantasy world.  I spend a few minutes here and there playing on TB/FB when LO is sleeping and when I just need a break from my research/studying and DH freaks on me.  The amount of time she seems to spend on it is beyond what is considered a "hobby" or a "release".  If her blog was a drug?  She'd already be in rehab.

     

    But that's my opinion from the quick skim that I did.  She is an amazing writer, but, it seems like there's not feeling behind it.  AND I know I am going to get flammed for my opinion because there is such a following for her.  But she needs to concentrate on her family not her blog.  I feel bad for Harrison.  Especially when he reads it one day.

  • I just feel like it is nobody's place to judge her. We only know, what she shares.  If it is a problem for her husband, her family, or Harrison...that is something she will have to deal with at some point.  I think people deserve support.  If you don't like her blog or want a part of it...that is fine.  I just don't think it benefits anyone to receive comments like she has on her blog.  I don't believe the public "call out" would get her to listen, if nothing else has...according to her friend.  It would make most people shut down and not speak to their friends because they wouldn't know who the person is.

    True.  Very good point.  But to TB world and Blogging World, she's created some what of a "celebrity" of herself... and with that comes the good and bad.  And to be honest, I think she feeds off the negative comments.  But, again, thats jmo.  Unfortunately, when you put your life out there, as with any "public figure" you are going to see a lot of ugly along with any good.

     Eh.  Over it.  LOL.  Moving on... back to studying for my Intro to Counseling test! Stick out tongue

  • I dont get it, so, all of you have plenty of time (even though you say you dont) to browse the bump and read about her blog, then post about it and then probably frequent the replies to see if anyone said something more interesting then you. So she spends a little bit of time typing out a blog entry, it really doesnt take that long to do. And so she gets some time away from her baby, its not the end of the world. Her child is still being cared for. Just because she doesnt constantly cuddle her child like most of you doesnt make her less of a mom.

    If you dont like her or what she does, then just dont pay attention. You all say "I dont understand the following" but your the ones who are bringing even more attention to her.

    Me? I need to get back to neglecting my son.

    From me:
    I stayed at home for 3.5 months.  I bumped...like a lot, but my DD napped a ton.  Now that I'm back to work, I bump when I pump.  There is no. other. time. of. the. day.  Seriously!  I can barely eat dinner.  Part of it is b/c the day is so fast.  The other part is that I miss my kid.  There's no other way to describe it.  I want to spend all my evening w/ her whether its taking a walk, bath time, stories, snuggles...you name it.  IMO, blogging and all that jazz is a waste of time.  And it sorta rubbed me the wrong way when she said the little money she gets from blogging could go towards SAH or Harrison's college OR those shoes.  Give me an effin break.  College or shoes?! Come on.

    Obviously, this friend went about it the wrong way.  BUT...she did it.  Maybe it's a wake-up call and maybe it will work.

    tHIS.  I used to love Blair's blog. I loved her writing, I loved her stories, I loved her style.  Then things starting seeming not right.  I totally think that "Blair" is some fantasy person that she has made up.  Someone she wishes she could be.  What her friend says makes total sense.  She wants to live this life on her blog becuase she really isn't that into being a mom. This "Blair" is a great escape and cover it.

    And while I blog, I don't do it when DS is awake.  I do it when he naps or at night or on my lunch break.  I think she has become obsessed with Blair and being #1 in the Mommy Blog World.

    This is nothing against Blair.  She seems like a decent person, I just think her friend is right on.

  • I am surprised you all care so much. So what if her real life "friend" has qualms about her internet use. Not for us to judge as we don't   know her IRL.

    someecards.com - I support Newt Gingrich's idea of colonizing the moon if it'll help me get away from Newt Gingrich.

    I cant seem to find what everyone is talking about on her blog, but I find it weird how one person saying something makes it 100% fact over the internet. As I type this, Mason is awake...Im a terrible mom and I never pay attention to my son. I need to just quit bumping and love him.....sheesh Confused

  • You are a real piece of work for starting this post ... you know?
  • Maybe all of what her supposed "friend" wrote is true but you look spiteful and jealous posting a thread about it.

    Agreed. Then again maybe she's still bitter about the beachhouse. Confused

  • surprising how 'non-judgemental' we should be but all have opinions on the matter.

     

    I've seen 'Blair' develop over the years, she was so obsessed with her 'baby crack', her unfortunate loss, her little blessing finally getting here --I thought for sure having a baby she would be in her element. Sad to find out that she is having such a hard time of it.

    I have to question, why add a part time job to it all?  If she needs the outlet, she should journal privately where no one is free to opine.

    furthermore she is never vigilant of her opinions, even prior to her ppd she was quite brutal to a lot of bumpies. I don't see why anyone should hold their tongue.
