So currently my family (me, husband, & 8 month old son) live with my husband's parents. I love them (his parents) don't get me wrong. It's just hard to be a family and live with your parents. I mean my husband acts like a child 80% of the time now. Then my MIL tries to be helpful but tends to make me feel like I'm not doing a good enough job with my son. Like he'll smell (but I always wait a bit to make sure he's done pooing, like a few minutes), well she'll rush over pick him up and say things like "O stinky boy, bet it feel soo much better not to sit in that." Or I'll be sitting by him, watching him play but doing my thing (reading or checking FB).....he's content playing by himself but she rushes over and say "o nobody paying attention to you". Or she likes to just pick him up randomly and leave the room to play with him. She constantly is making the mistake of calling him "son" but corrects herself in my presense. Then my FIL thinks it's wrong if the baby cries. Welll my son has always been prone to colic and is now teething. He fusses alot, so my FIL acts like I am doing something wrong. But I am doing everything I can. They tend to question how I do things with my baby or just look at me like they are keeping an eye on me. I've talked to my husband about this several times, but he says I'm making a bid deal out of nothing or that I'm over reacting.
We are working on getting our own place. I miss when we lived on our own, just support or advice or just encouragement would be nice. Sometimes I feel like I'm going crazy.
