Hi there. To all mummies out there I’m sure you were all made aware that times would be hard with a new baby and could get stressful, but were you ever warned that In fact it’s not the baby that stresses you out it’s the blooming in-laws!
These people you barely see and don’t bother their bum then suddenly you’re carrying their grandchild (they think it’s their own child) and suddenly you can’t get a break.
Soon as baby is here they always want to be around yet before you were allowed to visit once a month and not be questioned about it. Now your constantly having to work around them. Always have to make sure they get their day or three a week with their grandchild or you are the worst person in the world for not making time.
Yes we know you love your grandchild but honest to god are they going to change that much in a weeks time? Are they going to forget you? And it doesn’t help when their hopeless son totally hangs on their apron strings and is on your back if you even dare mention anything about them.
Maybe it’s just my experience but the hardest part of having a baby is the people around not the actual baby itself. Yes it’s good to have help around but only if you actually want or need it. Having needy controlling people around however is the complete opposite of helpful!
