So...here's my story - I am an earthy gal, whether pregnant or not. I don't paint my nails often, I don't have my hair done, I spend much of my time working with a well known oceanic conservation organization...and most everyone I know are vegan tree-hugging hippies.
My husband's family...300% polar opposite!
Like when I say opposite, I mean OPPOSITE! And it's hard, because they are not observant enough to realize that I am DIFFERENT.
I have been having a lot of passive aggressive and snide comments come my way after I reluctantly shared my baby registry with my MIL. She works in a daycare center, and that is all well and fine, but again, I am different. My baby won't be in daycare...
You can see where things are shaky...what have you done to let family know that you have your own way of handling things when it comes to the baby? For instance, I've already gotten a collection of baby soaps and products that I refuse to use...how do I let folks know that I am not going to use just any old brand on my baby? I plan to make my baby's soap for crying out loud! I would prefer if people save their comments and money and just let me raise my baby as I choose to!
I am hormonal, frustrated, and too crunchy for my family at times...apparently!
