im so sick of my mom basically telling me what to do when it comes t my kids.
i live with her because I can't afford to live on my own. I have a financial plan to move out within the year, (thank goodness)
but for now, I'm going insane.
she doesn't like to listen to my 20 month old twins whine. which they do, a lot, because they dont talk yet.
for example this morning, tyler wanted to go outside and so he threw this MASSIVE fit.
so I calmed him down and said if you wanna go outside we have to get dressed and put sun screen on and ask nicely to go so he got calm and so i got out the sun screen and started to put it on them and he will NOT let me put sunscreen on.
i am not going to wrestle with them to put sun screen on his face. i told him if you wont have sunscreen, we will not go outside, and he ran from me.
so we are not going outside.
now my mom is complaining that i wont put sunscreen on him. she is saying crap about being outside for 40 years and not getting skin cancer
basically saying just take him out anyway without the sunscreen
but its like, if i took them out without sunscreen she would be like "youre not even going to put sunscreen on them??"
she does crap like this all the time, its like she gets to be the ambassador of what i do and when i do it and how its done and im so sick of it
anyone else out there in a situation like this??
I don't live with my parents, Thank GOD! but every time we get together, my mom and dad give me a lecture about how I'm raising my daughter wrong. I will tell dd to do something and they will bud in and tell her she doesn't have to, things like that. Lately, I just ignore the comments. I feel that if they were such great parents, then why am I such a mess? I love my parents, but I think they should realize that they have made a ton of mistakes raising me, the only daughter among three kids. If that's your mom's personality, unfortunately for as long as you are living with her she'll continue doing these things. Hang in there until you are on your own.
