Soda & my MIL advice please!!!!!!!!
Heres my situation:
I have a 4 yo DS, whom my mother and MIL watch all week as i work full time, not willingly have no choice, so yes im alittle angry deep down. anyway, i am not overbearing and controlling at all, but since he was a newborn my MIL never respects my wishes ever, i have a list of things i said please dont do it and she just says yea yea yea and does it anyway, soooooooo frustrating! my mother yes she does whatever i say and shes my mom! so now i dont allow my 4 yo to drink soda, unless we are on vacation. i dont think its something he should have everyday, and i want him to think of soda as a treat every now and then. we do go on weekend trips and have a 1 week vacation once a year, so he has soda with dinner, if he requests it, if he doesnt remember, i def dont remind him. so i tell the grandparents NO soda at all!!! one simple request right?
now a close friend of mine ran into her at the local supermarket, she had soda in her cart no biggie right, except she tells them this is for my grandson, hes not suppose to have it but i cant say no to him. i mean she doesnt respect my wishes and she feels free to be open about it. so now im twisted! i figure i cant get through to an adult so im working on my DS telling him if its offered he has to say no, if i find out that he has it then no more on vacation. i mean what would you do??? and not having her watch him is not an option! so im stuck here
