I really, really, really HATE Ari. She’s whiny, condescending, rude and ignorant. Where do I even start with her? Let’s start with this carseat. I don’t doubt that the carseat was strapped in properly as long as the car had seat belts. Not all infant carseats require a base, and I know from personal experience that this model can be used without a base. There are slots on the side to run the seatbelts through.
If said carseat was so important to her, however, her annoying ass should have brought it with her when she came. She could have checked it at the gate. I don’t know what customs limits there are but Ethiopia had an active international adoption program for years. Surely the airport staff are accustomed to a white lady flying in with an empty carseat. What kind of chucklefuck moves to a developing country in their third trimester and doesn’t bring baby essentials: diapers, bottles (never assume breastfeeding won’t be problematic at times), a carseat, clothes, blankets, nursing pads, a baby grooming kit? Most of that would have fit in a large suitcase.
As for the mohel situation, I have two words for Ari: Beta Israel. There’s around 25,000 Ethiopian Jews, surely she could find a mohel in the capital.
I also think 99% of problem with the hospital, staff and delivery is she looked around and didn’t see enough white faces. At every turn it’s like she couldn’t believe she was getting competent medical care by Africans. I guarantee she would not have been that snappy had she brought the baby to be circumcised in some rural hospital in West Virginia or a war-torn area like Sarajevo. I’ve dealt with her kind plenty in my career. What a snotty bitch.
Yes, Biniyam is annoying, but he’s not the new parent, Ari is and it is clear she doesn’t know a damned thing. I took his speech about the breastfeeding not as him saying her milk was inferior, but him telling her she needs to maintain a balanced diet for her and the baby. And he was right. Yes you need water, but you also need protein. I don’t have children but I have had basically the same surgery only to remove fibroids and not a baby. Protein is your friend in recovery lest you want to look like Alfred Hitchcock. That anesthesia will leave you bald in a few months.
Brittany is delusional, Kenny is a cry baby, and Deavan takes entitlement to a whole new level. If she weren’t so busy trying to force a relationship so she can sit on her ass as a stay at home mom and get help with that demon seed child of hers she might make better decisions. All I see from her are demands but no contributions and no action to improve the sitatuon.
