My dh's aunts and uncles come up to visit at the cottage. They decided to bring Danishes and some had some almonds on it. So my MIL kindly asked everyone to wash their hands after they ate their danishes (and before touching out son) just in case because I'm sure that they had nuts all over the place in the bakery where they were made. Well his aunt went buck wild about having to wash her hands. She was literally like yelling back and fourth with y MIL saying that my da shouldn't eat anything because she's sure that everything is processed in shared plants and how do you know if it's not. My MIL and dh tried explaining that you can READ a label and it would state that. Well she continued to go buck wild and said that you can't have people come over to your house and expect them to wash their hands of they have nuts and if that's he case "I just won't touch the kid!"
1. Washing your hands is NOT that big of a deal. People do it everyday!
2. IF you were invited over we wouldn't have to worry about his allergies because we don't eat anything at the house that he is allergic to.
3. If you can't respect our wishes to help keep our son well and alive then b*tch you don't even need to see him let alone touch him!
I'm glad that my MIL and dh are not idiots and tried to explain it to her. Unfortunately she may be a lost cause. Dh is pretty pissed and said that we're done with her. Lol
