It's been quite a while since I have been on here, but I needed to share my frustration with someone!
DH came home from picking DD up one day last week from his mom's house. She watches DD while we are at work. He walks in the front door carrying her and she has this super long shoestring in her hand (not in a shoe, just loose). I asked where it came from and he said his mom gave it to her to play with "because she loves strings." I told him that giving her a shoe string as a toy didnt seem like a very good idea and he got a little defensive of his mom. He said "she plays with shoe strings ALL the time." I tried to explain to him that it might be something she could choke on or get wrapped around her neck if no one was watching. Of course he said his mom is ALWAYS watching her.
Apparently his mom handed the string to DD while she was in the carseat as they were leaving, so to me, that would be a pretty hard time for her to watch what she is doing with it. I dont even know if DH knew she had it until he got her out of the car seat when he got home.
Am I getting too upset by this? I'm obviously not comfortable with her giving that to DD as a toy, but she gets super weird if I suggest anything she does isnt absolutely perfect.
