i know this probably sounds odd so let me explain.
My mother in law fell and broke her hip. she is in her 80's so this isnt that surprising really. Her 2 wks stay in rehab is over and will be moving in with us. NOT a problem. we get along great and she has a blast teaching my preschooler (retired teacher with a masters degree)
My step daughter is 27 and wont move out. she moved in as a transiet...waiting on her mother to finish moving from one house to another so that she can take the old one. she now doesnt want to leave my home...i mean hell why would she leave...free living and free food.
Is it wrong for me to want her out? I am sick of cleaning up after her and even her father wants her to move on. I hate the way she speaks to him sometimes...i dont want my young children to think it is ok to talk to their father like she does. She yells at my children, even went as far as spanking my 2 yr old for peeing in her big girl undies...that only happened once...i warned her to NEVER do it again or she will really see the anger of a southern woman.When my little one had 106 fever she thought she would be helpful and give her a bath...ok except she ran the water cold...i mean straight from the lines cold...did i mention it was single digits outside so you can imagine how cold the water was. I grab my little one and set her aside, knowing that the water could send her into shock...i turn some hot water on and she argues with me...im like HELLO i have kids you dont i know what i am doing you dont...she picks my 2 yr old up and drops her into the tub making her slip and smack her bottem then proceeded to splash her with the freezing water. I very very calmly told her to exit the bathroom before i did somthing i may regret.
she does things like carry the dog by his hindlegs then wonders why he yelps...
if she cleans she just sweeps everything into a pile in the middle of the floor...
i cant even remember the last time she showered...
i cant have her trying to overrule my authority...i am the one that has to learn the therapy for my mother in law, to learn to give her the shots she needs...not her...i know she is going to try and take over but am I wrong to finally put my foot down and say NO?
sound off please and tell me what you think
