See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
So i just had my son exactly three weeks ago and, naturally, everyone is really excited about it. Well tonight, my dad's girlfriend made a fish dinner and during dinner, she squeezed some lemon on her fish and then after dinner, we ate salami (with our hands). i washed my hands and then picked up my son. shortly after, my dad's girlfriend took him to hold him on the couch. when she was sitting with him on the couch, she started sticking her fingers in his mouth to see how he would react to how they tasted. when i saw her do that i said 'wait a minute, is that even sanitary' and she was like 'well it's not a big deal' and i said 'you have germs on your hands. can you not stick your fingers in his mouth' and she starts giving me snarky remarks back. saying how lemon is a natural antibiotic and its really not a big deal. it ended with me getting really frustrated and yelling her and saying 'he's not even a month old. i don't understand why youre arguing with me. he's my child' and then she starts arguing about how she's not arguing and i was like 'he's my kid, not yours' there was a short silence and then she said 'i'm gonna give you back to mom now because she's mad' and i took my son and left. i just felt like that was so rude and disrespectful to stick your unwashed fingers in someone elses child's mouth, especially when they were just born, and then argue with the parent after they ask you not to. am i wong? how would you have reacted?
**When i say i yelled at her, i don't mean like screaming. i just raised my voice more than a normal talking voice. so she could tell i was mad at that point.
