Is it because he has food allergies and you are scared to feed him, even though I will bring all his food?
Is it because he has gastro issues and may have a bowel movement that you may have to help him clean up?
Is it because he is autistic and you don't want to take the time to get to know him and his special ways?
Is it because he has ADHD and sometimes needs to run around outside to get some of his energy out?
Is it because you just don't like me, and you don't want to see my marriage last?
These are some of the questions I want to ask both of our families. We have not had a date since our youngest was about 8 months. When we found out about his food allergies, they started making excuses. Me and my husband don't go out, we don't celebrate our anniversary, our birthdays, New Year's, anything just us. We had our oldest at 16, and never had a newlywed stage. It hurts, and I UNDERSTAND the reasons WHY they won't watch him, but they make comments, like "You need a break, you could use a mommy make over, kids definitely can take a toll on you." But anytime we ask them to watch our kids, they come up with the same excuses. It just hurts. I get jealous of seeing all these grandparents/aunts/uncles taking care of their nieces, nephews, grandkids for the parents.
