Do you think we are bad parents. *edited

Posted by   + Show Post
My husband and I have made a decision.
We are moving back to Florida from Tennessee. My husband will be starting school in the fall to be a database administrator. He is taking a direct job instead of a contractor job so that he can have benefits and steady guaranteed work.
We will be able to buy a home and get back on our feet with our finances.
I am starting barrel racing (a life long dream), and getting a part time job.. Our daughter will start pre-k next fall. At a school that is amazing and her great grandmother is there everyday as well as her cousins. My daughter will have 20 acres to run and play on and be a kid that isn't trapped in an apartment in the middle of a city. (not bashing any one whose kids are. Its just not how i want her to grow up).

I ask because, my inlaws are pissed. They are saying we are selfish parents and care nothing about our daughter and only care about our own selfish dreams. So.. Because we are better-ing our lives then we are selfish.They say we are only going back because my family spoils me. They are saying Im just a spoiled brat because my grandpa is.giving me his truck when he retires. Because he's buying another one. They say I don't deserve to have better vehicle then them because i don't work. (yes i do) they have a 2003 durango from a buy here pay here and my grandpa is giving me a 2011 Toyota Tundra. Its not my fault their truck got repo-ed.

Long story short. My mother in law thinks my 26 year old husband is still 12 and doesn't know how to detach the apron strings. She thinks he still needs to be living with her. And constantly under her watch.

I knew I could come to CM for an honest opinion.
So do what it is you do ladies! Voice your opnions!

** For those saying there is more to the story. Please read the replies.
Im not some materialistic person.. My husband and I want better for our daughters future. My husband WILL have guaranteed work and until you know the field my husband works in. You wouldnt understand the concept of me saying that.

I will answer on and off today 02/17 as we are packing up to head home tomorrow.

I agree with you. He's decided to change careers. He says he loves working on airplanes but wants
Something more stable for us.
Instead of seeing that she has sent dozens of psychotic messages over the past day since we made this decision.


Quoting FL2AK:

I think settling down is what is best for your daughter as she gets school age.  You guys have moved so much for his career.  I would think your MIL would understand that.

Been into horses my whole life. That's all my mom.and I do. We own a horse farm and operate greatly right now. We do some rescues and re homing and haven't found any problems. We love it and have a blast.
I have everything i need to start. Im ready for the money making.


Quoting LuvmyAiden:

Tell her to go fly a kite. It is YOUR life and open spaces are good for kids, so is family on a daily basis(cousins and such). Be warned that horses are a VERY expensive and money losing business right now though. If you want to be on your feet financially beware the horse industry!

I say live wherever you want. Your in-laws just don't want you to leave so they are making accusations. That would make me want to move even more!

We were here like 4 years ago. I loved it. I seriously dislike it this time around... No idea why. We're in Nashville. Which part are you in?

Take me with you! I HATE Tennessee!
