I dont want to sound ungrateful because my parents do ALOT of my family. It's just lately my daughter has learned if she doesnt get her way then go to Grandma and Grandma will give it or tell Mommy to give it. Like today my husband told our 3 yr old she couldnt go with Grandma and Grandpa after church and my mom promised her she could come later. Well she was throwing fits all day and just acting plan nasty and so we told her she wasnt going to Grandma and Grandpas. When I called my mom she told me that I should because they promised she could come down. She asked to talk to my daughter then told her to tell me she would act better and stop fighting with her little sister if we went to Grandma's. I'm tired of feeling like I'm being undermined. like I said my parents do ALOT for me. I dont trust many ppl with my kids and they are always watching them. We are at their house almost daily and it seems like sometimes it's my mom and I raising my kids because my husband and Dad work long weeks. I know my parents raised me and I turned out fine but I also know that I was given anything and everything I wanted when I threw a fit and remember how I wasnt always nice to my parents. I want my girls to grow up respecting my husband and I. Not to mention when i feel like this it makes me feel worse because my husbands Mom doesnt have anything to do with our family so its the only grandparents they have.
Ok I'm glad I got that out to someone besides my husband. Just needed a small vent! Any ideas on how to handle my mom and my kids?
