This Just happened!
My husband and I got invited to a birthday dinner tonight for one of his friends. Usually his mom would babysit but she is out of town. I called my Aunt to babysit (because my husband won't let anyone our age babysit. not friends family no one) my Aunt said she would but asked if I had called and asked my cousin (her daughter) I said no Zach won't let me. (not meaning that personal to my cousin this was in general but I guess I should have clarified) We left to drop him off about 10 min later. I got to my Aunts house I knocked on the door and she answered and said "Oh, you didn't get my text message?" I said no I was driving. She said, "Oh well never mind." I asked if there was a problem with her babysitting and I guess my uncle told her that she should not babysit since we did not let their daughter babysit. I was kind of dumbfounded and didn't know what to do or think. She said it was still ok to leave him but she was upset. I went ahead and left I wasn't going to tell my husband because I wanted a peaceful evening. (it was him they were upset with) I got into the car and saw the text message along with one my cousin sent. My aunt decided to call her and tell her all about it so she told me to F off and to never talk to her or my aunt again and that I was toxic to her family. So I decided to turn around and pick my son up and go home. My Aunt wondered why I had returned and I told her about my cousin't text so she got upset called her now it has turned into one of the many huge family drama cases that accur on a regular basis but never involves ME. I am so upset now I have been bawling for the last 40 min. my cousint keeps texting me nasty things and she decided to involve my mom who lives 2 hours away and had nothing to do with this. now she is upset too (not at me).

My husband and I decided when I was pregnant with my first that no one, I mean, NO ONE was going to babysit our children period. This has offended MANY of our friends and family. Your husband, while I think it's silly, is right. And your family should respect that. Maybe you should clarify with your aunt and cousin. If she is calling you nasty stuff just because of this, she didn't need to watch him anyways babe.
