So my bil moved here from Egypt last week and is living with us. The first thing is that he started telling my 2 year old dd to say she doesn't love Mommy & Daddy, only her Uncle. Dh doesn't like this either but hasn't said anything. Today we got in my van to go pick up the boys from school and dd, ds and I had been listening to Daughtry this morning. Dh doesn't like that kind of music which is fine, he's entitled to his own tastes. But then he tells bil it's bad. Now, my kids all LOVE Daughtry, even my 2 year old will ask for it. So she was all happy when it started playing and she was dancing in her carseat and having fun. Dh and bil start telling her to stop dancing and she should only dance to Arabic music. Dh starts messing with it trying to turn it off and bil goes so far as to tell dd she's a bad girl and not to talk to him. They think they're being funny but dd doesn't understand this of course and is looking at me all confused trying to figure out why they're saying this. Seriously it went on for 15 minutes. Of course I'm telling her she isn't bad and to keep dancing etc. I said something to dh and he thinks I'm just being pissy and basically said I'm being riduculous. I don't think I am. I think they took it too far based on my dd's reaction and the fact that it's ridiculous to tell her she's a bad girl.
