I just realized a little more, to explain my frustration with the situation mentioned below.
I don’t get home usually until 5-6pm at night. It is dark then, and Kenzie is almost ALWAYS in bed by 8-9pm. So the window of time these women are complaining about is 2-4 hours a day. That is how much awake time my daughter and I have a day to spend together during the week.
This is aside from the occasional brief cry at night of course but any one who has ever been around a baby knows that this happens sometimes and they are not kids for long!
Not to mention last night Kenzie was SILENT, she crashed, and I heard noises through the night and someone walking around upstairs even at 4am…I couldn’t sleep because I was so upset about this whole situation of being told to basically not play with my daughter at home.
