So, let me ask if this seems violent.
First off, I have a sense of humor and find things funny.
My 2 year old DD, if she falls...she cries...always...no matter if it hurts or not...she cries. So, I'll console her, and ask "does it hurt really bad? If so, Mommy just needs to cut it off." She starts laughing, as do I.
Okay, another thing...she's a dumpster diver. No shit, I throw things away, she'll dig them out of the garbage. Well, after telling her one day like a hundred times to get out of the garbage, I finally said "if you don't stop, Mommy is going to cut your arms off and beat you with them." She laughs and stops.
Okay, now...my MIL did over hear me say that. She told me I either seek therapy or she'll call CPS. LIKE OMFG.
I tried explaining to her it was just me being funny, and she honestly thinks that I will get violent with my 2yo.
I talked to my DH, and he was like "she's brought it up to my attention that some of the things you say are inappropriate, and thinks you need help." WTF. He doesn't defend me or anything.
It's all about my personality. So, obviously, I'm going to have to watch what I say around her, but, omfg...I swear, if CPS gets called and my DH doesn't say squat. All he will see is the back of my head walking out of this place.
I feel that some may find it inappropriate, but I don't say it hateful. I say it with a smile on my face. We laugh about it.
Secondly, this is not her child. It's her grandchild, and while she should have an opinion, she shouldn't tell me how I should raise her.
