Yesterday I had an OB appointment and MIL said she would watch DD while I went. When I came back to pick DD up I stayed and visited for a little while. Then MIL said "Sometimes I just let D play outside by herself while I fix lunch. I can see her from the kitchen." I wanted to scream at her. DD is only 15 months old. MIL lives on a farm with dangerous equipment and cows that often get out, not to mention electric fences and a dog that is a little iffy around kids. WTF is she thinking??? I know that is how she raised my husband and his brothers but I'm not ok with that for DD!!!!
I tried to explain to her why I didn't want DD out there by herself and she kept brushing it off like I didn't know what I was talking about. I got so mad that I took DD and left. I don't know what to do to get it through her head it's not safe!!! The sad thing is, I know she will continue to do it and just not tell me about it because I have caught her doing that before. UGH!!
Time to find a babysitter.
