Today, I received an extremely harsh and very long comment (anonymous obviously) concerning my last post.
At first, I wanted to erase it but I think that somebody who spent so much time writing such a comment (It was actually very nicely written and I always applaud people who apply themselves when writing...seriously!) should get their very own answer.
First of all, I'm sincerely sorry if I upset you (or any other reader) in any way. This was truly not my intention. Therefore, I believe that I should clarify some elements that you mentioned in your comment.
Its great for you to comment that you made yourself the black sheep but you didn`t. You, unlike the most of us, have a husband that is willing to bend to anything, and earns enough for you to permit yourself to stay at home.
I referred to myself as a black sheep because, in Quebec, statistics show that the great majority of women go back to work at the end of their maternity leave. If you knew my husband (maybe you do?), you would know that he is definitely not willing to bend to anything. Seriously, I have asked him to come to yoga class with me for the past 8 years and his answer is always "no!". However, you are right concerning his income. I shall forever be thankful that his salary allows me to stay at home with our daughter.
I recall at one point you put so much emphasis on the getting the right stroller, bed, high chair, anything vintage, etc., and now you come back saying that it makes you laugh how other parents are doing so. Good! laugh at yourself a little, for at least one of your viewers notices the crap you try to feed us.
You are also correct. I did put a lot of emphasis (and I still do because I love to find products that are a perfect fit for my needs) on getting the right "object". On that subject, if you got pissed off by my example (umbrella stroller), you should know that I was referring to myself who actually made a Excel sheet with different types of umbrella strollers. By the way, you are more than welcome to give me any advice on umbrella strollers since it would be very practical on our trip to Brooklyn in October. Oh, I was also referring to myself concerning the fact that I had (have) no clue on what to do with a toddler...and laugh at myself for not making more Excel sheets on activities to do with a toddler.
Don't you see how you push away people and how hypocritical you are being?
Um, this is bizarre! My statistics (via stat counter) are always pretty much the same. Feel free to clarify that part via email because washing your dirty laundry in public is not my cup of tea and is highly disrespectful for the few readers who actually enjoy my blog!
I believe that, as of late, you seem to be so filled with a lack of self esteem that you write this blog to feel good about yourself and put yourself above others.
Of course, as of late, I seem filled with a lack of self esteem. I'm dealing with an hormonal imbalance attributed to a phenomenon humorously called a Booby Blues, a form of post-partum depression. Thankfully, I have a great doctor, an amazing husband, a caring family and some loyal friends who help me realize, on a daily basis, that I'm actually a good mom.
Finally, I hope that you will simply erase auxpetitsoiseaux from your list of "favorite" blogs and move on with your life. I would also appreciate the few people who are actually reading my blog to respect that Anonymous comment.
Have a lovely weekend.
