Last night, the hubby, myself and our daughter went to Golden Corral for dinner. My daughter Lucy got a red balloon from our waitress, and she was stoked! lol.
When we got home, my SIL was trashed. (she started drinking at 11 AM that day)- I mean, TRASHED. So when Lucy walked in, SIL said "h-HEEYYYY, LUCYY!!! say hi! SAY HI AND I LOVE YOU!" Lucy was confused by how she was acting, so she just said "no" and walked away.
My SIL yanked the balloon from my daughter's hand, let it float up to the ceiling and told Lucy she wasn't allowed to have it anymore. she was calling Lucy a mean, spoiled child, a brat, all that. Because my daughter didnt wanna say hi to your drunk ass??? SHE DID THE RIGHT THING.
SIL told her kids ucy had to apologize to everyone in the house (???), and she was not to get her balloon.
Right in front of SIL, I grabbed the balloon and handed it to Lucy. SIL was FURIOUS. "I SAID LUCY WASN'T ALLOWED TO HAVE IT!!! SHE WAS A JERK!!!!!!"
I looked at her and calmly said "She is MY daughter. I let her have the balloon. She most certainly is allowed to play with it. she did absolutely nothing wrong. Don't try and discipline MY child."
SIL blew up- "She gets rewarded for acting like a f*cking ASS, whatever...WHAT THE FUCK EVER....."
How dare she get mad cause my child was freaked out by her drunk self? I grew up with an alcoholic "mother".
I am already teaching Lucy not to stick around drunk people, she deserves better.
