I’ve gotten the random feedback that I’m an overprotective or controlling mom. That I don’t let people hold Mila, that I don’t let anyone near her. This is a complete exaggeration. If someone is holding Mila and she starts crying, I take her back. Not because I don’t have faith in the person holding her, but because I feel like she’s my responsibility and if she’s going to be upset I’d rather take care of it. If she’s fussy, I take her so I can check her diaper- diaper duty is no one’s job but mine and Danny’s, I would never ask someone to check her diaper- what if something unpleasant occurs!?! Nope. Unless you’re cool with it fine, but I don’t do it to be controlling. I do it because I want you/them to comfortable. And truth be told, I enjoy it. She’s only gets older, and I cherish every moment with her- from happy to frustrated to sad. So, if you’re one of those people who says little things- know that you are wrong! lol jk but please have some grace and understanding as to why I do things. I love that people love her, it brings me so much joy, and I would love for you to get your Mila snuggles in, just know that I’m not being crazy over here. ::end rant::
