I am a young parent and meeting parents who are more experienced than me are always a challenge. I appreciate how they always give me advice in every baby related topics. It's just sometimes, I feel like they show me that I'm not taking good care of my daughter and they want to take over. It is as if they know all the right things to do. They even tell me that their daughter is much better and what not. I know that we, mommies, are boastful of are children. I get it because when Baby K grows up, I'd probably do that too. The only thing that I hate is that they always compare my baby to theirs. I don't mean to offend anybody with this post. It is merely my opinion and based on a recent experience.
Baby K hasn't started cutting her tooth and she's 8 months now although she has been teething for months. I don't worry about it too much to be honest. I've asked her nurse and she told me that every babies are different. She said that if she hasn't cut her tooth when she turn one year old, then we'd go to the dentist to get it check and I'm fine with it. My little one is perfect and I don't mind if she doesn't have a tooth yet. The thing is, it is always the question that I get from everyone who sees her. They tell me that tooth starts coming in from 6 months and it is always like that in every baby. They put me in a spot where in they are right and I can't do anything about it. I don't see the point of them stressing about it when I don't even think about it that much. I know I will ask about it when we have her 9 month check up next month but for the meantime, it isn't one of my concerns. She can eat pretty much everything I give her and I don't see a problem about not having her tooth cut yet.
It is so frustrating when people keep bringing up things that shouldn't be talked about. I know that they are concern and everything but talking about it over and over again isn't being concerned anymore, it feels more like being nosy. I feel so annoyed over comments that aren't really necessary. They truly show me that I don't do the right things because I'm a young parent and I don't know anything. Anyway, apart from that, Baby K has been well. I haven't blogged for over a week because of a few reasons. My beloved partner has been a little clingy lately. He wants me to spend time with him by playing computer games together. I appreciate it though because I know I did asked him that we should have some time together. It isn't the best choice he's got but I'll accept it anyway. As soon as finishing a couple of computer games with him, Baby K will start to feel sleepy and even though her grandma tries to put her to sleep, she still wants me to be there. That gives me less time to be on the computer. When she is finally asleep, it's either I'll cook her food and tidy up or shower time and after that, I'll be so tired and fall asleep. I have been so tired lately. Play time with Baby K recently involves a lot of chasing after her or catching her from falling on her back. Our living room is spacious now because they moved the coffee table so that she won't bump on it and it also gives her more space to crawl. That makes it much safer and less paranoid mommy for me. Although today, she has attempted to climb up the sofa and she was half way near the top. I was freaking out because I had no idea how she did it.
She is surprising me everyday. I can't even keep up on what she's been doing. I think I get tired more often than she does. It doesn't matter though, I love her every bit even if she makes me paranoid all the time.
