Dear Dish-It, My Mom's Having a New Baby


Dear Dish-It, is here to whisper "ttyl after I've thought about this some more".


Dear Dish-It,

My mom's having a baby and I've been stressed ever since she got remarried. Then my aunt died and it really hurt me. Please help!

Dear abby,

It sounds like you've had a lot of big things to deal with recently, so it's understandable that you would be stressed out. To lose a loved one at the same time as your mom is beginning a new life, it must feel like your life is being turned upside down. Add a new baby to that equation and you've got some serious chaos. While this is definitely a tough situation, it's not one that is completely hopeless. You are probably feeling a little neglected by your mom who is focusing most of her attention on her new marriage and the soon-to-be new child.


One way for you and your mom to bond is for you to get involved with some of the baby stuff. You're probably not super excited to suddenly have a new sibling on the way, but the more you get involved, the easier it will be on you and your parents. It's also a good idea to try and schedule some time with just you and your mom once and awhile. Whether it's shopping, a trip to the movies or just lunch every once and awhile, it's important that you and your mom make time for one another, especially now that there's a new baby on the way. You need to tell your mom how all of these changes have made you feel, cuz she may not realize how disrupting this has been on you. You should also think about all the good things that will come out of having a sibling. There are tons of fun things you can teach and share with him or her like how to put on make-up or how to catch a baseball. Assembling some sort of scrapbook for the baby to look at when they are older is also a cool way of bonding and it's a good creative outlet. Hope this has helped - Good Luck!


So, ya gotta burnin' question? Need some love directions? Thinkin' 'bout stuff like depression, sex,how ya feel 'bout YOURSELF (that's called "self-esteem"), boyfriends, girlfriends, losin' old friends, bullyin' or peer pressure, but too scared to ask the parents? Don't be scared to .

    I'm not quiet sure what's a real friend and what's a fake one anymore. I know when there's a friend who's only a school friend rather than an 'outside' friend as well, but at the same time it makes me so confused. Here's my story: There's a girl named Xian. We had a unique way of becoming friends ... but it clicked. For the whole year I've been trying to keep in contact with her ... but she's not very willing to try and put in any effort to stay in contact with me. Her personality is beyond sweet, and her skills at art are even better. If she was to have an award, it would be a giant trophy with her face plastered on it and big bold letters listing 'Nicest Girl In The World!' ... Its just ... she lied to me.  I was all about this friendship. I was ... i'll admit ... sort of a lost puppy following around her owner.  So, I got her this T-Shirt she really wanted for her birthday, and not long her birthday was mine, April First. I was expecting at least a letter, or maybe even something cheap. It didn't really matter to me.  But on my birthday she didn't even come to school. Nor when she got back did she ever say sorry, or give me any be-lated gift of any sort.  That should have been my first clue. Even my mother started catching on. My second clue was she even told me she was oblivious and wasn't good at keeping in contact. I thought she was joking. How could a friendship so sweet be tossed out just like that? My third one was near the end of school, one of her friends in elementary was bragging about the plushies she got from Xian. Apparently she had four from her.  Xian had originally told me it was AGAINST her religion to give out gifts to other people. I knew she wasn't lying about her religion in general, because I met her mom on a field trip and she was quiet ... different. But I didn't understand why Xian had gotten so many small plushies for her, and yet not a single small stamp for me? My last clue was the last day of school. She didn't even try to say good-bye or even hang out with me for that matter. I know what you're thinking. "Girl, you've gotta be kidding me if you can't see that she has no intention of being your friend!" But this girl was the nicest to me. She stood next to me during harsh times, and comforted me when I was down. She told me I was important.  And you don't get many friends to do those special things to you. It was rare to have a friend make me feel so tall and worthy.  ... So ... I can't understand ... why'd she do all that .... and suddenly ... just ... walk away ...

    I don't know. It honestly could be that she likes you, or she is just a really good friend.
