The thing of it is

This is going to be short and sweet..well maybe not that sweet. This is to all those who are out there who say my baby is too small. You make me feel inadequate as a mother. I know everyone things they know best, but I do. Sydney is the happiest, most energetic baby you will ever meet. She has slept through the night since she was a month and a half. She has enough messy diapers for 2 babies. She is basically crawling, and getting smarter by the second. Before you tell me to feed her more, and that she was too tiny, Think twice. She is my world and I would never let her starve. I know I am not the only mom out there, who has these type of things said to her. Sorry our babies are not just the way you want them to be.
Until my doctor tells me to be concerned all of your unwanted comments will be disregarded. Please keep them to yourself. Try to remember how it felt when others said unnecessary things to you.
I have taken this for six months, but enough is enough.


  1. I'm sorry you are having such a hard time with all the comments. I hope I've never said anything that adds to your stress! It is really hard to have people comment about your kids and their looks, behaviors, etcetera. Most of the time no one means anything negative by it, but as a mom it is hard to not look at it that way. I know for me I am always worried about trying to be a good mom, so when people make comments about something with my kids I can't help but feel I am somehow inadequate and have done something wrong. Keep your chin up! You have the cutest, sweetest baby girl and she has an awesome mom.

  2. Amanda...you know it's so funny...because I heard somebody saying that to you over and over again one time and I thought...hmmmmm, I wonder if that is making Amanda feel bad. Well now I know. I'm sorry if I ever said anything that made you feel bad. Sydney is so perfect. It's funny how people forget that babies come in all different shapes and sizes. Love always, Kelly

  3. I read your post and felt a lot. I can empathize with feeling hurt by what others say about my parenting or child...even if they have "good intentions." Sadly thinking before speaking does not happen enough for most people. I am truly sorry if I ever said anything that added to your stress or made you feel inadequate. What a darling mom you are and how lucky your daughters (and Jeff) are to have you!
