Okay, it is a little more complicated then that!
I had my son on a pretty good schedule for about two years. When I got pregnant with my daughter there were some complications and my husband had to take over. The schedule got a little messed up but we mostly stuck to it. When out daughter was born it seemed the whole house went haywire. My son thought he could get up at three in the morning and watch TV because mommy did (feeding the baby). Then my husband lost his job. We had to move back into my parents house where a few of my sibling also live. My mom typically cooks for all of us but it is never at the same time. I want to get my son put back on a schedule, but it is hard when everyone in the house has her or his own idea of when to do things. We are supposed to move in a couple of months but I really want my family back. How can I have my own small family in the middle of a bigger family? How do I approach my mom about the dinner situation without upsetting her? And one more question that is a little off base, how do I get my mom to stop interfering with the way my husband parents? Every time he says or does something (typically with discipline) my mom tells him he's wrong or being to hard. She is helping us out, but I want her to stay out of it... ugh.
