I am too sensitive. I already know this. It is something I need work on, but when I have had this trait since early childhood, it's hard to break. Here's an example of why I am too sensitive:
Yesterday I dropped Jack off at the church nursery like usual. When I left, he was happy and playing with the other baby. About 45 minutes later, I get paged. As I make my way down to the nursery, my only thought was "I bet he threw up".
When I got there, the coordinator said to me: "We just have too many babies and Jack is being too fussy and needy". Um what? Babies are needy. Babies can be fussy. I asked if they had fed him. They just had fed him and he had calmed down, but apparently I still needed to take him.
When I walked in to pick him up, he was fine. Not crying at all. As a matter of fact, there were other babies that WERE crying. Why was my son singled out?
If this is going to be a regular occurrence, I need to re-think my idea of going to this particular service. I can always watch the service from an adjacent room with Jack.
What bother me is this: Why was Jack singled out? I am sorry, but he is not too fussy. Yes, he CAN be fussy, but that's generally when he needs one of two things: Food or a nap. Maybe if they had just fed him like I instructed them when I dropped him off, he wouldn't have fussed.
It bothers me that Jack is always immediately labeled as fussy by others. *I* know he can be that way, but in all reality, is he any more fussy than other babies?
So tell me moms, would this bother you? Or am I being too sensitive?
