Ok, so none of you has ever actually met my mom, but I'm sure most of you know someone like her- thinks she's right about most everything and hers is the only opinion that matters? I love my mom, don't get me wrong about that, but she can drive me insane. I'm only now getting better control over disciplining Colin. Now that Cayden is here, she's getting worse about things. She keeps telling me and everyone that will listen that his name has a girl's spelling just because of the y I put in there ( she even says it in front of Colin,who at least sticks up for his brother). She also critisizes his hair, she "hates" red hair. He's 2 weeks old and she still hasn't even held him. I've done my best to ignore it all, but now she's started in on me- she thinks I should get my tubes tiedand feels I'm the one who is showing favortism because I'm taking care of the baby instead of doing everything for Colin who is almost 5 and short of meals, can do most things for himself, plus help me if I need it (he usually jumps right in and cries if I tell him no). Help me with some advice please! Before I say something I'll regret.
She's now even gone to the extreme of removing both kids names from a set of pictures we had customized. She didn't even tell me- my friend who took the pictures told me. I'm now at a point of oh well, because it hasn't done me any good to be polite to her about it. At least his brother is sticking up for him!
