We were stuck in a 1-bedroom for awhile and let our oldest (2yr old son) stay every other night at great grandparents and grandpa's house. He got better sleep and it was just the situation at the time. Fast forward a bit we found a 3 bedroom house (Thank god) and that was supposed to be where we always have him except for on saturdays and friday nights because we figure grandparent/great grandparent time then. No they still end up swindling him back or making sure he's asleep when we try to go pick him up. I went to pick him up one day and someone said, 'If you are not ready for him we can keep him'. ... uh.. no. I put his shoes etc on and politely told them I was ok and that we were just going to go home. I have to hold back what I say to them because they have helped us A LOT. I mean helped with deposit for the house fridge table chairs all brand new. We didn't ask for some of it they just did it. I just want them to understand we have a house now and that that is OUR son not theirs....
So how can I gently and subtly ease my son back into my and hubby's home? I don't like confrontation and prefer to gently ease my son back into our routines as he is a very sensitive to change child.
