Rough one today. I’m so stressed at work, I’m once again battling tears. Men don’t get tears, how they’re just a sign of emotion – frustration, anger, feeling overly warm. And I work with a buuuuuunch of men.
So I decide to take a break, check e-mail and FB for a few minutes of distraction, since I’m skipping lunch. Aaaaand, babies. Freaking babies everywhere. Please, for the love of ANYONE who is not a parent, talk about something else every once in a while. Anything else! Post a picture of moldy cheese, for all I care. Just. . . not another picture of your girl’s new headband, or “oh look – here’s a video of him making cute noises!” AAAAH! Please, please, please remember who you are outside of being a parent. You have likes, dislikes, quirks that are unique to you and have nothing to do with your child’s development process.
I get it, kids change your life. I just don’t have any of them, so I “wouldn’t understand.” I know, you love them. They are precious, they are a gift. I know that, and I’m really and truly very happy you all have them in your lives. But, please remember. . . .they’re not all there is to life.
Also, don’t anyone tell me to “enjoy my sleep while I can.”
Maybe I’ll just close my FB account.
