Have any of you come up with some gracious ways of thwarting off well meaning friends, relatives, or even strangers who give advice? I haven't even had my child yet and it's started. I know that these people mean well, and I just can't seem to find a way to deal with it. Generally, I just smile and nod or say thank you and return to what I was doing, or walk away. I hate being rude. But, then there those who are related and simply will not stop jawing at me about the flu vaccine, when to head to the hospital, how soon I have to call in the family, etc. Lately I find that my hormones make me ALOT less patient in hearing these tips over and over again, but like I said, I can't be rude to people. Would love to hear your tips.
