Crazy I know. I have been dating my boyfriend for a year and half. I have an almost 4 year old boy of my own. My boyfriend's whole family has been very accepting and welcoming with my son. It's actually really nice. A few members of his family insist my son is part of the family. Yet there is one nay sayer.
His aunt doesn't like me or my son. She has expressed her dislike for me to several other family members. They told her off and it eventually got back to me. This aunt doesn't like me because I was a single mom. I swear that's her main reason. But she had 2 kids with someone who abandoned her. Then a third kid with another guy who left her. She raised 3 girls on her own for years before finding her current husband.
As for my son, he's a boy. My boyfriend's family has a lot of little girls. All but one is a boy. But he is 11. This aunt thinks my son is too rough. Not physically really. But he tumbles and falls a lot. He acts like boy. I was told by my boyfriend's grandma that the aunt isn't used to boys and doesn't understand boy. Which I can tell by the dirty looks I get from her.
Sorry i felt like venting. Last night she was praising the girls in the family that recently had girls. While i know my son isn't really family, its just annoying. No one has a choice on what gender there kid is.
