First off...let me just say I appreciate what my Mother does and her help...on that note
She is driving me absolutely nuts! She watches my daughter 3 days out of the week for free, again I totally appreciate this and understand she doesn't need to (although she literally doesn't need to, we could put her in daycare, but my mother enjoys being with her). She is constantly undermining what I ask though. We had completely weaned her off of having a "binky"...and got it only at bedtimes and were even working on taking that away. Then all of a sudden LO has been extremely attached, even crying at night for it. I was a little set back as she was doing such a great job without it, when comes to find out, my mother has been giving it to her all the time! It is so frustrating! Along with the binky, she constantly not having her nap on her schedule and is constantly letting her just fall asleep with her. I know this sounds silly, but she is on a great schedule and sleeps in her toddler bed. With my mother letting her sleep out on the cough snuggled with her is starting to make it even more difficult with her in the toddler bed because she just wants to come out and snuggle on the cough with us and fall asleep.
My Mother is definately extreme in the fact that even if I slightly mention any of the above she gets so defensive and just throw that she watches her for free in my face and so on! It is really stressing me out and i know some of it's just little things...but i'm on the verge of just telling her off and putting LO in daycare (which I really really really don't want to do!)
