old wives tales!!

Urghhh can't do anything without my mother or mother-in-law telling me I shouldn't be doing it! Lol driving me nuts! Is anyone else going thru this? 
I'm 4 days postpartum and maybe I shouldn't be over doing it, but I just hate sitting around if my baby is asleep then I feel like I need to be doing something. Like washing his clothes, his bottles, getting paper work organized for his doc appointments, and other things I need to be done. I just can't wait for more time to pass!!!!! And to get these crazy ladies off me lol I know they mean well and it's out of love but still lol
