So, my husband has a daughter from a previous relationship who is 8 years old. DH and I have been together since SD was 5 months old. BM and DH have not always gotten along about SD, but lately things are getting better.
Anyway, BM uses MIL as a free babysitter for SD and her other daughter often. DH did NOT like this, but whatever. At least he gets to talk to SD sometimes and see how she is. We live 40 minutes from BM and MIL, and his work schedule varies, so he can't get her all those times a sitter is needed. It's ok having someone we know and who is in the family looking after SD.
SD comes over last night in a bra. She just turned 8 two days ago, and she is NOT developing breasts or anything of the sort. DH and BM have already both made it known that they DO NOT want SD in a bra of any sort. MIL feels she needs one "because she'll be going into 3rd grade" soon. That's it. DH sent her a text last night telling her NO more bras. She sent one back saying "She needs one. She'll be in 3rd grade next year. Stay out of it and go back to your video games. This isn't about YOU." Ok, WTF?
Whose kid is this anyway!? I thought, as parents, BM and DH should be making those choices for her, not MIL. I, BM, and DH are all very livid. This is something we all agree on in this situation, and I hate that DH's own mother is putting him through this. He's so upset. He told SD not to put on another bra until her mother tells her it is time to. She is not to listen to MIL when she is at her house, and she tells her to put one on, and if she has a problem with that, she can call him. Was he wrong to tell her that? I'm so sick of his freaking family. They are crappy people... :(
So, I'm on facebook checking out profiles, and I run across the two following quotes about DH... Anyone got any advice how to handle these? They're MIL's husband, DH's stepdad.
One day I'll walk away and not tell you how I feel. BUT TODAY AINT THE DAY!!! Some people are just dickheads that think the world revovles around them. Grow the hell up, and NEVER walk away from me when you get me pissed you'll want to see whats coming!!! On April 3rd...
I'm so pissed off!!! Can't understand how a man can put his foolish pride over the feelings of their 8 year-old child. You really need to grow up and remember THATS MY GRANDDAUGHTER AND WHEN YOU HURT HER I HURT YOU!!! I will do time over her dont even think I wont. Yesterday...
