Just curious, do you ladies get really defensive when you receive advice? I do, especially when it's from my mom or her sisters. I know they are just trying to help, but I take it so personally like they are telling me I am a bad mother. I am 36 years old, and no offense to younger mothers, but I feel that at this point in my life I am mature enough to handle having a baby. I know that is not why they are giving me the advice it's just the way I feel. In addition, they tell me things from like 30 yrs ago, and don't always check the facts. They read a sentence of a 2 pg article and take things out of context and relay it to me. Also its the way they "give" the advice. FOr example, the other day my mom calls me to specically tell me I am doing the "wrong thing". ANd did I know I was doing it wrong. Yeah mom, I knew it was wrong and I did it anyway. Are you freakin serious. Turns out, her advice once again was half assed and was not an issue for me. How do you ladies blow stuff like this off. Really could use some insight, I don't like to hold a gruge with my mom
