We took Sawyer to Dollywood yesterday and Marshall stayed with SIL. They have a camper about 2 exits up from where we were at and they headed down there yesterday. We were just gonna pick DS2 up on our way back. Well she texted Dh and said they would just bring him back today when they came home if we wanted. I didn't really want him to stay cause I missed him but was tired and didn't wanna have to stop and get him cause I knew we'd have to visit.
They go to their camper nearly every weekend and almost always are home by 10 or 11am. The latest they've ever been is 12pm but it's rare that it's ever that late.. They still weren't back yet so DH texted her at 12 and she said they'd be home in a couple hrs. Well it got to be 3pm and they still aren't back. She finally texted him and said they were on their way back now but it'd be awhile cause it was pouring. This was at like 3:30pm. OK uhhh you always come back around 11am but today it ends up being like 3:30 before you head home? That irritates me. I wouldn't care really if they had said "We can keep him but we won't be back til late, is that fine?" But I expected him home by noon the latest and it's gonna be around 5pm or so.
THEN she said he ate mac and cheese with veggies baby food for breakfast and the peach cobbler kind for lunch!! He's had the mac and cheese before but for breakfast? I like for him to have a fruit or fruit and oatmeal and then she had to feed him ANOTHER junk thing for lunch?! Like couldn't she have given him green beans or something for lunch since he had the mac and cheese or a fruit for breakfast if she was gonna give him junk for lunch?
UGH! I know it's not that big of a deal but I'm just irritated by what he ate and that it's 6hours later them coming home when it's NEVER EVER this late!
I'd be upset, too. We haven't had these sorts of problems with family helping out with J yet, but I am worried about the potential conflict involved. It doesn't sound like you were worried about his safety or anything, just annoyed by the inconvenience and the eating option, right?
Yeah I knew he was fine as far as safety. She's good at watching the boys and stuff. DS1 will go over there (they live next door) and play with her 8yr old.
It just annoyed me that it was so long after their normal time coming back. As bad as it sounds, if it had been DS1 I probably wouldn't have been as upset about it because he's older, but I don't like DS2 being gone a long time, especially without being informed it would be 5-7hrs later then they normally get back. I feel like since he's still little no one can take care of him as good as I can. Which ever one who watches him does fine with him, it's just my own issues as a mama I guess lol.
