Please tell me I'm not the only one. I hate that i still live at home. Are there any positives I'm not seeing??
My mum and step dad keep taking over with my LO and I feel like they don't think I can look after him myself. And because they're soo used to them being the parents, when they're talking to him they'll say things like "aw have a cuddle with mummy..... I mean nanny!" I know it's just out of habit but it breaks my heart when they do it. It makes me hate him near them, I end up hiding away in my room with him so noone can take him away from me
I can't afford a place to live at all, there's not a chance in hell I could afford anything, I doubt I would even if I got help with most of it. I'm gonna be stuck here for the rest of my life and Oakley's going to think my mum is his mum. I've failed already
I just want to move away so none of them can "help" me by doing it all. If I wasn't breastfeeding I'd never see him! Sorry for the rant, I just hate this crappy situation so much and I feel like absolute sh*t.
I'm a single parent, so if I weren't living at home, I wouldn't be able to cope - I can barely do everything now by giving Bee over to someone else for a couple minutes for things like having a bath, tidying up, cooking dinner and doing homework etc.
One of the first things we discussed after telling my mom I was pregnant was that I wanted to do EVERYTHING by myself - which I did when she was a newborn and I could put her in the Moses basket to get something done, but now I really do need a lot more help trying to keep her in one place and entertained. I still don't do everything I want, but I get things done when they need to be.
I think you should just talk to them and explain that you wanna feel as independent as possible while still living at home.
Besides, even buying all of my own stuff and paying money towards rent/gas/electric, I'm still saving so much! I'm here 'til 2015 minimum and at times I hate my siblings and even my mom can annoy me, but I'd rather be here with cash to spare than struggling by myself whilst being out-of-pocket
I am! and im stuck here for next 5 years minumum do love my mam and dad to bits but they do sometimes need remember Evie is MY baby...mum does the whole 'come have a cuddle with mummy...oh grandma' thing...just put your foot down and explain that your the parent not them and they need take a back seat they are only trying to help you out but does go abit far.
I am.. but I quite like it. It means that I have lots more time then I would if I had a whole house to keep tidy and clean and organised, and having some time to yourself is always good when you have a baby.
And it means I have way more money then if me and my OH had our own place so we can save up etc. There are some positives (:
If you think that they're a bit interfering then just say that you don't need all the help they're giving you. Don't worry you won't be stuck there forever (: xx
