I just read sandyo's post about her SDs questioning mom about money and she said something about BM being mad at sandy because of the decisions she was making. And sandy wondered "what decisions"?
Got me thinking about BM raging about me getting involved in decision making when it came to her children. It was sort of the theme for years that it was not my place to make decisions about my skids.
I never made a decision besides what to make for dinner. Seriously. Anything DH and I did, we decided together. And that was usually limited to what presents to get, where to go on vacation and how many texts were too many texts in a month.
And really, what are all the parenting decisions we make that SMs are sticking their noses in?
To this day, it still confuses me. No matter how many times DH said I never made any decisions, it was her focus for years. I tried to think about decisions I have made regarding DDs and I don't come up with many, or at least not many that a person other than me, with input from DH and maybe BF have made about DDs.
They got gardisil vaccinations. Screen shut down was 9:00 for a couple of years and then slowly got later. ODD was grounded once. I didn't let DD15 go to a club downtown.
Seriously, what are these decisions I would have made as SM?
