Re: My sisters stupid comment

I love the comment about it being a privilege... I will remember that!

This is such a short time in our children's lives and in our own lives. I am going to enjoy it and not worry about what I'm "giving up" in order to do this for my son, and for myself. I know one day I will look back and miss this time so much, but also feel good knowing how special it is.

Sorry your sister is like that, but just keep your chin up and blow off her comments. It's too bad she feels that way but you won't change her mind. Stand by your parenting choices and tell her to bugger off... and enjoy the quiet time you'll have with your little one while everyone else is away!

Thank you for that response. I need to learn to chill out when I get negative comments regarding my nursing. I'm a hothead and spout off when someone says something to me like that.

I definitely need a little more and a little less in my attitude.

OP - good luck!
