Easter Sunday Df, Ds and myself when over my cousins house for dinner. The only reason I went was because my mother was going and my favorite cousin would be there. Plus, my cousins and aunt haven't met my fiance or my son yet.
Well, my older cousin has a daughter named Sidney and she's adorable, around 3-4 years old and speaks extremely well. She's a little spoiled but he and his wife didn't think they could have kids so they treat her like the world revolves around her.
I thought the whole day went great.
My favorite cousin called to say that her grandma (my aunt) said that my son (who isn't even 2 yet) can't speak as well as her grand daughter (Sidney). She said that Sidney knew her ABCs, colors, and could speak in complete sentences by the age of two.
So my cousin told her off and eventually hung up on her.
I'm hurt. Not only because that's my son and she's family, but to me she didn't even spend any time with my son to know what he's capable off.
Don't know how to handle it.
** my favorite cousin is my younger cousin and she tells me everything, we talk often, so there was no malice behind her letting me know.
She's not the little girls mother
And my son is reaching all of his milestones, knows his body parts, animals and etc... he was just shy.
