I don’t hardly ever post about anything controversial.
I think I can tell you everything you’d ever want to know about Narcissistic Personality Disorder. I don’t think that anyone has ever argued with me about my experiences and subsequent wisdom regarding the N.
I try not to stick my toes into areas where a verbal confrontation would occur. I had enough of that crap with the N. Everyone pretty much agrees that these Narcissistic individuals are whacked. (That’s a fancy psychological term for those not in the know.)
Having brought new babies home from the hospital, I also feel intelligent enough to talk about babies and how much is involved in caring for this brand new human.
My sons were alert, robust, healthy, demanding, latch on & down to business (nursers) strong – 8 to 9 ‘pounders’.
They were not 9 week preemies with breathing difficulties, underdeveloped lungs, various health worries – fragile little sparrows fallen from the nest too soon, arriving too early for them to fly solo.
Mine arrived one at a time.
When I needed help, I had a husband to lean on. Even so, it was over whelming with ONE. The gear alone, that is necessary for one baby! Can you imagine….say, I don’t know……maybe EIGHT?
I just have this “mind blowing” vision of 8 little bundled up ‘burritos’ in two cribs….none of my sons’ bedrooms would have comfortably held 8 cribs.
A friend of ours, has newborn twins, and a kindergartener. She has a “support staff” that would make someone in the news – envious.
Can you imagine EIGHT tiny babies that are ALL hungry at the same time…..plus SIX more?
When we switched to formula, it was roughly 3 cans of dry powder a week for one hungry boy. That was $33.00 a week, 11 years ago.
Do you know what formula runs these days?
On sale – $25.00 for one can of dry powder…that’s not even the best brand, with DHL something or other that is better for optimum brain development. That one can might last a newborn eating every 2 hours…maybe 3 days. (Never mind the bottled water.)
Let’s multiply that by……Eight.
$600.00 for formula per week….and I haven’t even talked about diapers…..
I sure hope she has NASCAR sponsorship…..she’s going to need it.
