so my mil is pissed off at me for changing the babysitting plans tonight, instead of her watching my 4 year old she's going to watch my 11 month old. those of you who read my post yesterday know why i changed the plans. she's upset both because i changed the plans and because i told her the true reason why. my 3 year old niece is in town and sil and her are staying with mil, so if my 4 year old stays there she'd be with my niece too. my sil and mil treat my daughter unfairly, let the 3 year old act like a brat and tell my 4 year old that since she's older she can handle it herself. im not going to let my daughter feel insignifcant and be treated unfairly, so therefore her and my 2 year old will be staying with my mom. my mil favors our baby out of our kids so i know she'll give her the attention she would not give my 4 year old.
anyway, she wouldn't talk to me on the phone (not answering my calls) so this conversation happened thru text. and she did not answer me once i told her my daughter didn't want to stay with her cause my niece doesn't share and nobody does anything about it. this morning, i text her to ask her if she has all the things she needs for the baby (she usually has extra stuff on hand) and she didn't answer. i gave her a few minutes and sent her another text, asking her if she would rather watch my niece and daughter her at my house (she lives 5 minutes away) if it would be easier since i have carpet and she has all tile, and everything the baby needs is here. no answer as of yet, sent this text an hour ago.
i know she's still expecting me to eventually bring the baby over tonight. (husband and i are going to a wedding reception). but i feel if she's going to be an immature child and not answer me, i'm certainly not going to bring my baby over there. she's done this before, one time i asked her to babysit another one of my kids and she didn't answer, and when i saw her later that night she asked "where's so and so?" umm hello? you didn't answer me!
so i can either take the baby over and play into her immature game, or play my own and just stay home with the kids. im not going to ask hubby to stay home cause this is the reception of his best friend. i dont care if i go or not, id rather be with hubby tonight but not if i have to jump thru hoops and kiss mil's ass. im perfectly fine staying home and doing sparklers with the kids and watching the ball drop later.
what would you do?
