When I told him that I breastfeed his brother because it is best he said that his step mom told him that bottles were better because boobie milk was nasty. I told him that was her opinion.
Then DS asked if we were broke because his step mom said I use cloth diapers because I'm too broke to buy real diapers. I told him we use cloth diapers for the same reason we recycle and because other diapers give his brother a rash.
I'm so aggravated! I've put up with her immaturity and hostality for nearly two years. I've never been anything but nice to her and she is just mean and nasty in return. I'm not asking her to be my friend. I'm not even asking her to like me. But for Pete's sake she doesn't have to trash talk me to my own son!
And I get it. She is jealous. But she has no reason to be!
I've been divorced from her husband for 5 years. I've been happily remarried for 3 years. And now I have a baby with my new husband.
I am not competing with her. Buy yet she tries to make everything a competion. The only time she ever talks to me is to ask me what milestones my baby has hit and then to say her baby is doing 10x better.
And every time I'm not around she is trashing talking me. We live in a very small town and have some of the same friends and they all tell me what she says. I try to brush it off because she is really just making herself look bad. But now she has taken it too far!
It's one thing if she wants the whole town to think I'm an idiot but to question my body image and parenting choices to my son is another thing!
A part of me is saying to just brush it off. But anther part wants to confront her and pitch a fit! When will these games ends?
