Why is it that mom in law and I dont agree?

We absolutely love each other but this woman is very odd, she thinks that my child is gonna die if I give him a piece of cheese so she crumbles it up and then he doesn't eat it.

Who else has this "over protective grandma" problem?
How do I tell her to stop being so insanely over protective?

I thought this was a good thing at first and now I'm going nuts I have to hold my tongue a lot cause I dont want to upset her.

  • LOL, my MIL is the opposite. She's like sure, it's safe to jump up and down on the glass coffee table........your 3, so you're big enough to walk down the street alone, etc. Consider yourself lucky.
