Can't I post on facebook without her thinking I'm asking for advice?
Her = GIL (grandma-in-law). I said that I got friction burn on my elbows from the slide at Bananas, and a friend said "you're doing it wrong" so I told the story that was more funny than embarrassing or painful - K said "hey mom try it this way" and went down the slide feet first on his belly. He and the other kids had been doing it that way all along with no ill consequences so I tried it once. Immediately my shirt caught on the slide and rolled up tightly exposing my belly and back, so while I'm halfway down the slide I'm trying to pull it back down and my elbows rub on the slide a little. I get to the bottom, laughing hysterically, pull my shirt back down, and hope nobody saw that. No freakin big deal. It's funny and everyone lols, and then DH's grandma (looooong backstory, he's not even friends with her on fb, she's a piece of work BUT I try to keep the peace and let stuff go) goes
LEARN>>>>>Pay no attention to K's syggestions till he is mature and you see snother adult do it !! WOW !!!
Like really? Am I that stupid? It's no big deal! Plus she has said before that K is "what's wrong with the world today" and that we don't beat him enough (OK she never said that exactly but she thinks we are not tough enough with him). So totally disregard your child until he is an adult. Maybe that's why her own kids can't stand her... like I really need parenting advice from HER! I am usually really good at holding my tongue but I'm pretty Mama Bear about Kalten where she is concerned, and the capslock and extra exclamation points pushed me over the edge. So I said
I pay attention to his suggestions because he is a smart kid with a lot of creativity and a great way of thinking and above all he is a person. Whether I do them is really up to me and I'm smart enough to know when something is actually dangerous. If he told me to go down headfirst, do you think I'd do it? No real harm was done. Just having a little fun, and no actual flashing happened.
Bring on the drama, lol. Whatevs, I'm over it.
