my husband&i live with his grandfather, who raised him. his gfather is convinced i got pregnant on purpose(i didn't, i was on birth control)&is CONSTANTLY undermining me as a parent. its not a huge deal now, because my son is only 9 months, but soon hes going to figure out that if mom says 'no' gpa says 'yes.' nothing i do is right, he's always complaining to other family members that i don't know what i'm doing. the final straw was yesterday when my husband&i got into a fight&i decided to take my son&go to my friend's house to cool off (god knows if i had left him there what his gfather would have told people). i didn't realize my son had pulled off his socks while i was getting his diaper bag ready. threw a blanket over him but his feet were sticking out. gfather-in-law yelled at me for not putting socks my son. so i yelled back, which is very unusual for me. i don't want my son growing up around yelling, advice please?

He sounds trivial, and so what if you did get pregnant on purpose? Not his concern. I think it's best if you move out. Better to do so then put up with that BS.

I agree, move , get your own place, before you son gets old enough to realize he can pit you to against each other.
