So, we are going to visit DH's parents in Vegas again next month, and I am not really looking forward to this trip. Me and 5 yr old DD just got back in March from a 2 weeks vaca there, and somehow over the years, they have decided it is a wonderful tradition to give my DD at least one-two ice creams from the ice cream man a day. Nomatter how many times I said, no that is enough!, they say "she is on vacation, she will be back home eating healthy soon". She gained 3 pounds the last trip, that is a lot when she only weighed 40 lbs to start. She isnt over wieght but she does have a rounded stomach.
She is about to start Kinder and I know kids can be cruel. I swear I am going to get really ugly if they try to step around my rules this time. I will go as far as taking the ice cream from my DD's poor hands and throwing it in the trash. If I have to look like the bad guy, I will. I will not tolerate them loading my child with pure sugar and fat because they want to "spoil" her. If they love her that much, they need to realize they arent doing anything but harm to her this way. I will tell them they can spoil her with toys, not food... !!!!!!!!
