My mom totally stresses me out. What to do???
Let me start by saying I am very close with my mom. And she is very close with my 7 year old daughter. But I I now have a 17 month old daughter and for the last couple of months I get so stressed out being around my mom. It's like everything gets under her skin and she stresses about everything! When we all get together with my sister and her two girls (3 & 7 months) she can't handle it. Of course my 17 month old is into everything and her house is not very child proof. There are steps, a glass coffee table that for whatever reason all the kids want to stand at, and her high chair is an antique and the part that you eat on lifts up so of course my little one lifts and her food goes everywhere. It has gotten so bad that I don't want to go visit because I don't want the stress. She came to my sisters house today when I was there and as soon as she walked in my sister and I both got stressed. It's like she looks at our kids like they have two heads if they don't act perfect. My first was an angel and that is probably what she is use to but my sisters 3 yr old and my little one are different from her. I don't even want to ask my mom to watch the little one because I am stressed out the whole time I'm gone worried that she is stressed out. I have though about saying something but she can be quite bullheaded and I don't want her to get mad! Bt I don't want to get stressed every time I'm around my mom. Advice??????
