And My Complaining Begins.......

Last night I was getting to bed and walking down the hallway I heard D's mom saying something about us giving too much sugar to the kids. He said "what? We hardly ever give them candy." She said no, she was talking about the foods I make for the kids to eat!! Now this is the kinda crap I have complained about in the past is her lecturing on things with our kids when she really has no idea. She was saying that a meal I made the other day was full of starch and THAT'S why the kids act up and Damien has a hard time going to bed. I had made a meatloaf, homemde mashed potatoes and gravy, frozen corn, and macaroni and cheese. All of that was loaded with starch according to her. I know potatoes and mac and cheese have starch, I'm not stupid, but as a mom I'm thinking 1 meat, 2 veggies, and a bread product they're going to eat!! Anyone else deal with this crap or am I the only one?!?! I swear she's critical of everything I do yet she visits and sees the kids once, maybe twice a year.

Well according to my MIL I'm the food Nazi because I never let them have treats. Sure I do, I just don't let them have 5 in one day. Everytime we are there she is shoving some kind of treat into their hands. Or she'll say " Ask your mom." If I say no she'll stick her tongue out at me and spit. You know that's a hard one to describe.
Just think Sabrina only 8 more days after today!

I am so sorry. My MIL is queen of the eye rolls. "I am sorry we don't let the kids have a lot of candy." EYE ROLL "Sorry we don't want the kids to have toys made in China." EYE ROLL "No my four year old can not fly 1900 miles alone and spend a month with you." EYE ROLL.

Why are they like this? And are we destined to be the same? I hope not.

Sorry she started acting up. Just ignore her and do what you want -- they are your kids!!

Ugggh.. Sorry! I have MIL issues too. With the baby so far it's been:

I started solids too soon.. she didn't until 6 months. Now I know that's not true, she gave him cereal at 3 weeks! I however wanted to wait until 6 mo's & she was more than ready at 4. But we were slow about it at first still.

The cloth diapers. She used them on my husband too... but now says that while she likes how they feel they are just horrid on a baby, not good for them, etc.

I should be letting her heat up the BM because cold is just not good for the baby. Forget that it's not warm from me lol & I don't want that habit & most imp. the baby doesn't fuss about it cold!

I could go on but I'll be nice! Just think though, you can make it through this...
