Last week my 2 year old son went to stay with my husband's parents for a few days. They also had their other grandchild. The first day there, the other child came down with bad diarrhea but my inlaws did not tell us about this until the 4th day when they also got sick. By this time now, we had bad weather and our son ended up having to stay at their house 2 more days before we could go get him (they live 100 miles away). Now he is sick with it, and we have a 4 month old baby he could make sick, and we are supposed to have her baptism this Sunday on Easter. I am upset b/c I think they should have called us the 1st day to tell us the other baby was sick, and that they were inconsiderate and selfish to not tell us. There are other things they do that bother me such as going way overboard with gifts (they give our kids more presents than we give them!), not following our requests for sleep/nap routines, and not disciplining the same way we do when he is clearly acting out (we do time out, they don't do anything). Whenever I mention my concerns to my husband he thinks I am overreacting, that they are just being grandparents, and he thinks I am especially overreacting with this diarrhea issue. Am I???
