Sorry ladies, I have got to get this off my chest before I explode.
So DH is OOT for work, I invited his parents over this afternoon to visit with LO but mainly to pickup a gift they are taking when they see BIL/SIL this weekend. I used to get along great with them, but they've been really weird and judgemental ever since LO was born.
They said a bunch of things today that p!ssed me off, but a few really irked me. I was telling them that LO laughs hysterically whenever I tell him "no", I thought it was just something cute to tell them. FIL went into a huge rant about how telling a child "no" breaks their spirit. Whatthewhat!?! LO doesn't even understand "no" yet, but I'm supposed to have a discussion with him about making better choices? Yeah, right. Geez, ever heard of age appropriate discipline.
Then my MIL asks me what food LO has tried so far. We're following the 100 Best Puree list, he's probably had 10-12 things so far. I think he's doing great. She starts telling me that she's shocked I would expose him to so many things "so early" (he's 7 mths and started solids at 6 mths) and that I shouldn't give him anything except formula and cereal until he's over a year old. Oh yeah, and the fact that I make my own babyfood is insane apparently.
I could go on and on, but I won't. I'm so sick of them.
Thanks for letting me vent. I need to get back to breaking my LOs spirit and killing him with my homemade organic fruit purees.
