Quoting Alyssa's mommy [EBFT]:" Wait a minute, I just read your old posts and your daughter isn't even a week old yet. Doesn't your mother ... [snip!] ... especially with a newborn? The last thing on my mind would be men and dating! I don't see how she can be so insensitive :/"
I didn't get it at all either...Abby's 4 days old as of today, and I was like, "Ok, I'm trying to get the hang of having a kid, by myself, and you think I need to be looking for a relationship too?" I'm trying to get over losing my husband, and dealing with the fact that he'll never get to meet his daughter, and you want me to start thinking about a new relationship?
It's something my Mom has against single mothers, I guess...She seems to think that I have to have a man there to raise her successfully...At this point I don't know if I'll ever be ready. And I'm quite confident that I can raise her, without a man...
And something else I would've explained to her at that time if I hadn't been so pissed off...She has men in her life. Not only does she have two loving Grandpa's, but she has three uncles, many of Colt's and my friends, all ready to be there for whatever...There is no way I need to get into another relationship just because "she needs a man's influence".
I don't get how she expects me to move on so quickly...It's just like, is that all it's supposed to mean for me to lose him? 4 months? And after I just freakin' had our daughter? Do you get how much more stuff that opened up?\
I pray I'm never that insensitive to my little girl.
