Remind me, why do people have children? Because they want to, right? Then why does having a baby gives some people, and women to be more specific, a royal reason to crib about everything?
I know it’s not easy, but then every answer you give me, cannot say – “you will only know when you are a mom”. I too can be stressed and I too can be tired. Not having a baby has nothing to do with it. And no my life is not a fairy tale as you might want to believe. I work hard and slog all day. No, it’s not like I am having fun all the time. I look cheerful because that’s my basic disposition and even after I have children I will pretty much look the same.
This rant is the result of these few women that I come across on a regular basis. These few who make me feel totally useless and non-worthy (well at least they try and on some occasions they succeed too). They are either my age or maybe a little older than me. They are educated woman who hold jobs. I am not sure how much of a career they have though.
These are woman who think they have done humanity a great favor by producing an offspring and this doing gives them the right to crib about everything and blame it all on “the child”. Not fair ladies. While I do understand that life isn’t very easy, I still don’t think its right to use the child as armor.
So don’t judge me. Yes I woke up late, yes I partied all night, yes I didn’t cook, yes I took a vacation. I did all this and much more. But don’t give me “you-have-a-baby-and-then-we’ll-talk” line. I have been tolerant so far but next time you say that I might just snap back!
Edited to add: It seems that I am getting misunderstood. I am not trying to pull anyone down here. I will just add an example to make myself clearer – My post is about women who tell me that I don’t need to go for a massage because I have no idea what it means to be tired. And many more such cases. I don’t want to write them all here, but you do get the drift.
