I don't understand...

I don't understand when people say things like this:

J:my little is so cute when she sleeps we call her our little burrito!
C: yeah they are cute when they are little wait till they get bigger and they start elbowing you in the face and rolling and hitting you and you can't sleep because of it. Right now its hell.

Ok lets look at this cute parent telling how cute she is and then BAM a parent who says soemthign so *makes me want to bunch them in their olvaries*
really really its Hell? WOW isn't someone a little dramatic! 1. your kid is sleeping in your bed when they are 11 months old news Flash if you don't like change it! they make these crazy little beds with bars to make sure little kids and babies don't roll out what the name of it.... oh yeah a CRIB! your "hell" is your own fault. and 2. really really your 11 month old is hell because she moves around while she sleeps. Its thats Hell then what is this thing called that I am going through!

I was watching Parenthood *love* last night and A woman was complaining and said becasue its been 3 months and her husband and her are still not pregnant. Really try 3 years and then get back to me. I know its just a TV show but between those two things happening with in 24 hours of each other I just wanted to SCREAM!

GRRRRR. Ok sorry but I had to get that off my chest I know I don't know how it is to be a parent and have sleepless night and I'm trying to say its not hard and it will be a piece of cake but what I don't understand is that Parenthood is Tough! of course you have to teach these precious kids how to be a good person and how to learn things that they will keep with them forever. But it doesn't last forever....those little hand prints on the mirror leave and move out sooner than you will ever think.

There are tons of people out there who would die to have those little elbows hit them in the face while they sleep, make a huge mess and the list goes on.... so not to affend anyone but holy smokes once I have my kid I'm gonna be a feakin awesome MOM! lol not cause I'm never going to have hard times with them but because I know how life feels with out them and I'd take that worst day I have with my kid(s) then a day I had waiting for them.

I'm just get a little well maybe a lot jealous some days. I feel like hitting them in the forehead and saying you could have used a V8 I just can't wait for my day to come and I'm holding my child in my arms. I'm crossing my fingers and praying 2011 is our year. I don't mean to sound so bitter I just don't understand sometimes.

Could NOT agree more. I internally scream and mentally punch people in the face EVERY day.

First I want to say that I think of you and many of my other friends who struggle from infertility daily during my prayers, I wish so badly that each and every one of you could experience motherhood now and not have to be trialed with this..while my experience with it is limited, I've cried many times for those whose trials have been long term...

I do have to say though, that just because a mother has an off day and makes a comment like that about their child doesn't mean they are ungrateful for them or love them any less. Just as I am sure every woman makes an annoyed comment about their husband every now and then, it doesn't mean that they don't love them to pieces. I'm guilty of calling my kids stinkers sometimes, publicly even, but it doesn't mean I don't realize how lucky I am to have kids and it doesn't mean I don't cherish each and every moment with them, even the trying ones.

You will be an awesome Mom and I keep praying that day comes soon for you, you definitely deserve it.

I had the same thoughts before Ethan. I know what you mean! It is easier said than done tho :)

Ps. I wish I could speak my mind like you. I am working on it!
