This weekend my in-laws were over and to give you an idea about my mother in law she is a very strong headed, stubborn, and pushy woman. I do love her and she has a good heart but at times its really hard to get things through to her. So she kept telling me how I should start feeding my 8 mos old eggs but I told her how I wanted to wait on feeding her certain feeds to just rule out any allergies n would feed her other feeds but hold off on the eggs for a bit. So we all had breakfast and while I was in the kitchen I saw her give my 8 mos old daughter a few bites of egg after I deliberately told her not too. I am really infuriated not at the egg situation but at how she always likes to do things her way in the end. So at this point I just decided that I am fed up with how she wants to be like a "parent" to my girls and do things her way after I tell her that I don't want her doing certain things with them. I am not sure how to get through to her but I am thinking of not talking to her and just not letting her babysit if she will continue to act this way. I am her mom not her. Anybody have any tips, advice, or ways to deal with such a mil?
