I live in an apartment complex that my parents own with my parents & two sisters. We all share the same yard with our kids so I see every single member of my family every single day. Of course this leads to our good moments & bad moments.
Well my sister has a bahbysitter today which is a girl I went to high school with & she has a son a few months younger then my daughter. So we're talking about pre school etc & how my friend is sending her son to pre school she asks me if I am sending my daughter. I told her no, this is something that my SO & I have discussed & we opted that a long time ago we werent going to send our daughter to pre school for various reasons.
In the midst of this convo my brother in law comes walking by & starts rambling on about how if I dont send my daughter to pre school she will be a social retard. Really dude!? Seroiusly!? Are we having this convo!? Not only that are we saying this in front of the children playing outside right now!? Are you fucking kidding me!?
Well I am almost ready to snap at this comment. To comment on my parenting choices & skills like that is out of line. To yell something like that loudly in front of my child is out of line. I cant believe this summer vacation just started in fact this is day 2 & if this keeps up we are going to have major issues that is for fucking sure.
Sorry I just had to vent somewhere bc I cant yell at my brother in law, I dont want to make a scene, & I have nobody to talk to right now to vent to. My brother in law is a nice guy in general but my gosh he does say things once in a while that I simply dont approve of & saying that my daughter is going to be a social retard is out of line. BTW my child is more social then any of the other children living here (8 total) & they all attend school. Oh & lets not forget that at 3 1/2 yo she is much smarter then most her age. Her skills are above all the other children she is around & she is interested in learning things like the presidents (she knows the first few), geography (can point out various states & countries on the globe) & things like that.
Venting over, please feel free to weigh in with your opinion or to vent about your own family issues, thanks for reading if you got through this.
