My Sister-in-Law's daughter was born just 2 months after my daughter and she competes in everything! I am the kind of mom who will never lie about what my daughter is doing and just go with the flow...but eveytime my daughter does somethingand I tell her and she says "O my daughter was doing that 2 months ago!" Come on now...yes her daughter walked before mine but being that her daughter seems to do everything before mine by at least 2 months it bothers me because we know it is not true, it wouldn't bother me at all if her daughter was more advanced than mine but I know that she lies constantly because I have caught her in these lies a few times. She also tried to push her daughter to do things way ahead of what most people consider "normal". I am about to explode and if this was my sister I would have told her a LONG time ago to knock it off and it is not a competition. Do I keep my mouth closed? I just want to say to her, I know you have a niece that is 2 months older than your daughter and one that is 5 months older than your daughter and you feel that she will never have a "first" but just enjoy it and let her be a baby. We will all be just as excited even if our babies have already done this.... I need help!
