Uh, when you are raising a young baby who cries and needs constant attention (and probably experience some post natal depression) I think it's okay to have a little cry when you're over tired and stressed.

Awe I am sorry OP. I have a nine month old son too and I know how bad of a temper my son has when he is cranky. What helps for me is I bounce on an exercise ball or or the bed and pat his back, while singing to him and rocking side to side. I know it sounds like a lot but it isn't that hard lol. Just wait, this isn't even the terrible two's! *shudders* good luck OP!

64- I just got through the terrible 2's. I am now going through what I like to call the Terrifying 3's! Lol I hear it eases up at about 5 because they discover their independence. AND SCHOOL STARTS!! YAY!! :D

Desiree - don't count on it. My 5-year old never had terrible twos (or threes) or fearsome fours, but at 5 her sense of independence is what makes her not listen to me. She wants to do what SHE wants to do. I fear her teenage years. *shudder*

^ He should fear the teenage years they are very scary MUAWAHAHAHHAA. Nah doc all you have to do is keep an open relationship with your daughter during those years and you're all good.

Aweee, OP.. I can just imagine :( Maybe if the dad is not around, a relative like your mom or a sister could go and stay over for a couple of days. That way you can get a better night sleep and get your strength back. Good luck. =)

109- this is true.. Now that that dream is crushed, I guess all I can hope for is for my son to be president one day! Lol Or, in this world now, to graduate high school! (Which he will!!) lol :)

Truth is every year of parenthood makes the last one seem simple in comparison. I expect around 30 it'll all be sorted out.

1-its sort of funny that the person with the canadian hockey profile picture says "eh". QUESTION! what are the sterotypes about american people, besides being fat(which tends to be true from what ive seen in my days,)

But OP is stressed out for carrying the baby for so long and now caring for it. My aunt had a baby and used to cry often because she never had just a little time to herself or a goodnight sleep. So OP is allowed to cry.

It's really stressful for a while after you have a baby. Yes it's wonderful, but with all your hormones and such being so crazy it gets really hard. I cried with my baby a couple times cause apparently somehow along the road my depression I obtained after having her told me she didn't like me. Even though it wasnt true of course.... Women get odd feelings and thoughts.

#226 When I was very little and that I was angry at my parents for something, I used to tell my mom that I didn't like her and that I wanted to switch family. When I think of it now, I realize how mean it was. I didn't mean it, and I can't imagine the pain I caused to my mother. So, don't worry, I'm sure it's the same for your daughter! Hang in there! :)

3, you've never cried when you're overtired, stressed or exhausted before? Give OP a break. Raising children is a full time job.

Oh stop!! For the love of God! Just stop! Have some kids! Then I'll personally deliver your pacifier on a silver platter! On second thought.. Don't have kids! Because if this is the attitude you'll have when you and spouse have a baby, I feel so bad for spouse and baby!

^^^^ If you didn't completely read it, I put, "Spanish? Eh, no." afterwards, implying that I don't speak Spanish. But thanks though.

I would if I were that dog. It's probably the only peace and quiet I'd get what with all the crying going on.

6, can I ask you where you got your pic from? Shit is pretty funny.. Just wanted to share, promise I won't 'cramp your style'

#111 Don't worry, #6 was obviously making a joke, a funny one. What kind of person would seriously consider doing that to their children?

Sucking her thumb is bad for her teeth and may cause her to need braces. You really shouldn't encourage it.

Reply

I have to agree. Thumb sucking is really a bad habit you'll later wish your child didn't have. But it is nice that she's able to comfort herself to sleep with a blanket (:

Reply

Thumb sucking puts you at risk of developing buck teeth and a possibility of lisping and other speech disorders. But that doesn't mean all kids will have those disorders. I know plenty of people (including myself) who sucked their thumb as a child and still have perfect teeth and no disorders.

Reply

It doesn't always turn ugly, but my sister almost had to get braces because she was sucking her thumb at 3 years old. And I know a girl who still did it at 6 years old and she has horrible teeth. It seems pretty hard to break the habit.

Reply

It's okay to suck your thumb as a infant/toddler. It's the same as a pacifier. You want to stop the habit when there young before it becomes a problem when they get older and can't stop the habit. That's when you start experiencing problems. So go ahead and get him a soft blankie and a soother. Just know when enough is enough and to help kick the habit.

Reply

Self calming methods are very important for children. A kid younger than age 5 should not be pressured to stop thumb sucking no matter how bad it is for their teeth, however most kids do stop on their own.

Reply

My 12 year old sister does it, I make sure to smack her on the back of the head whenever I catch her.... But my mom is shit with teaching and even shittier with discipline. So all my siblings are bad kids you wish would fall off the face of the planet when you see them in stores.

Reply

228- Just because your mom is not stupid enough to ignore the majority of research that says that you should not use physical punishments on a child

Reply

228- (cont, my phone screwed up) does not mean that your mom sucks at punishment nor does it give you the right to bully your sister. Leave the parenting to your parent(s) and please don't breed.

78. Hold up. You don't even know me. Maybe I have a sister with a mother that is too Ill to take care of her. Maybe I had to raise said sister. You don't know that! It's FML. It's supposed to be funny. Not everything has to be taken seriously. And you are just 21. You are not that older than me. You have things to worry about too. So how about stop trying to belittle people.

Reply

21 is way older than 15...that's 6 years. and if your sister had an ill mother, you do realize that would be your mother, right?

Reply

#95 : it's okay.. #78 told me that I shouldn't have kids bc of my comment. She obviously can't take jokes, or doesn't even know what sarcasm is.

i would much rather read a post that was meant to be funny than a serious one like everyone of yours. now i can understand why you think this issue should not be joked about, but still people like me are going to make jokes about it because i don't care as much as you do. but when you start to tellpeople that "they shouldn't have kids" or "stay in school and keep your GPA up", that's when you cross the line. you don't know these people, so don't try to run their lives, especi

I never said raising a child was easy just to clarify. Again, you don't know me. Stop trying to flip my words. I never said she wears any diapers. And yes it is FML. This site was created to have a good laugh out of. Hence "spill the beans" button. And it's their decision to post what they want. When you post something you are taking a risk of people being a total douche! That's sadly what people have come to so that's why you have to ignore it. And I think you broke your rule about

Everyone just calm your hormones! Nobody know's anyone's story so just leave everyone alone! PEACE AND LOVE.

Actually honey.. I said I'm always up for a debate.. Not an argument. A debate is when you have some reason behind what you are saying. An argument is when you are getting angry and you're spewing out whatever comes to mind. I have reason behind what I said. And I am sticking with it. And you both are absolutely right. I don't know anybody on this site. And, quite frankly, I don't care to know anybody on this site. But what people say on this site is the first impression someone is going to pick

All I'm saying is that people should be more sympathetic to some situations. Just think, if OP were to come back and look at the comments everyone has posted after staying up all night dealing with a crying baby, in which, she may also be dealing with post natal depression, the comments posted would probably sadden her even more. I know that it would make me upset to see people offering me a pacifier and asking what kind of diapers I wear and people saying my childs father should leave me just b

I'm 15, and I'm not as stupid as you seem to be. Six years is not a big difference really, and those years are ones when people mentally mature. I get its a joke! it was lame, but a joke. But this site has more adults then young, stupid teenagers! :) and I see no reason, that when you're exhausted, can't sleep, have no time to yourself, and just don't know what to do, that you shouldn't be able to have a little cry.

Reply

Slow down, everyone. It was JUST A JOKE. The great thing about being a parent is LAUGHING at your difficulties as you try your best to figure out an impossible situation. So there is no reason to treat being a parent as such a grave thing. Relax.

155- as pathetic as it sounds, when a girl becomes a mother, she loses alot of friends. She may have turned to this site as a way to kinda talk to someone. I do the exact same thing. Like I said, it's pathetic, in a sense. I lost alot of my friends because I wasn't able to party or drink or hangout anymore. It's a sad deal. I found this site and liked it because I can talk to people and say what's on my mind without being attacked. (Or so I thought..) This site has become my friend, if you will.

oops, I typed thsn and it autocorrected to then. :) oops. but I know its a joke! I'm just saying that if you make a joke, expect someone to freak out.

Desiree, certainly nobody is saying parenting is easy, but jesus, shut the fuck up. If you can't laugh at your own incredibly normal situation than you're an incredibly uptight person and I feel terrible for your kids if they ever develop a sense of humor.

Reply

Ya know what 185?? I am not one to cuss at anyone or be completely rude.. But I'm gonna start with you! First of all, butt out! Second of all, how fucking dare you come on here and tell me to shut the fuck up and say you feel sorry for my children?(Which for your information, I only have one child. You should read more of my post.) Do not, for one second, feel sorry for my child if "he develops a sense of humor". Just because your "sense of humor" may be twisted enough to lau

Reply

And lastly, is that how your mama taught you to talk to someone? To tell someone you don't know to "shut the fuck up"? It's called MANNERS!! People around here need to learn how to use them! Never once did I cuss ANY OF YOU PEOPLE! Cussing someone for stating their opinion is just about as bad as spitting in their face! Treat others the way you want to be treated!

Desiree- from your profile- "I am an elderly lady trapped in a young ladys' body!" Yep, I understand now. My grandmother is the same way.

Desireev.....let this go for now. Walk away, breathe, recollect. Anger is getting the best of you, most every comment I've ever seen you make is usually a positive one, but this seems to be a delicate issue for you, if I may say so. If you want to either talk a bit and destress, or vent at someone for a few pages to get it out of your system, email me if you don't have someone else to do that. I have two boys myself, I think I'll get it. :) Okay? :) Smile, breathe some more, laugh a bit. Tis a

Not to butt in or anything... but I feel as though this has escalated to extremes that are unnecessary. To each their own (sense of humor) and in my opinion, not one person on here should judge another. I obviously cannot stop anyone from saying what is on their mind, nor do I have a desire to, but I'm just saying we should all put our pointing fingers down and chill (:

Neighbours with baby's, stories from parents and their friends, stories from teachers, experiences from people on the Internet. I've never heard anyone tell me parenting is easy.
