My mom is here visiting for a few days, but I'm always so much more stressed out when she's around that I never enjoy our visits. She always puts me down about things I want to do with my life, and the only time she supports me is when I'm working myself into exhaustion. And then there's the rude comments...tonight when I was casually talking to her about how my fiance and I would like our kids to be close in age, she responded, "well, that will be hard by yourself." I don't know if she assumes that my fiance doesn't help me at all or if she thinks at some point he'll just leave us? But it's definitely not the case, and it makes me upset that she would say something like that.
And on top of that, when she's around DD she absolutely refuses to put her down. I can barely get her away from her to change and feed her. So for the past few nights I've had an overstimulated, cranky baby. Ugh.
