Right now, I am so upset I don't know what to do. I had to post this before I head out the door for church.

For those who have read my prior post then you know that today my youngest son is getting baptized. Well, it seems that my mother-in-law won't be there because she has chosen to be at another church for their Women's Day. Today is Youth Day at our church and I am not sure yet if she plans to take Ernest with her or not since she picks him up every Sunday for Sunday School and church. Not only her not being there upsets me, but I feel sad because I am starting to feel as if she is placing preference over my children and I can't stand that. Because Robert is the youngest of the boys he is being left out of a lot of things. Most of the time lately he gets really upset when he sees Ernest leave on Sunday's without him. Big Ernest things I am over exaggerating, but I had to rock him last week to keep him calm. And now she has chosen not to be at his baptism. That is just wrong to me. What do you ladies think?

Oh, yeah. I forget to mention. Yesterday we were going to take Robert to Golden Coral for a birthday dinner and cake. Well, our niece called saying she wanted us to wait until today so that they could join us and to celebrate Robert's baptism. I had no problem with that until now since I don't know if little Ernest will be there or not because she didn't tell us about her plans until 5 minutes before she picked him up. She is visiting another church this afternoon as well. So depending on what happens little Ernest might not be there for his own brother's birthday dinner either.



** Update **
Well it seems my mother in law went to the other church for Sunday School instead of for church services. So, she was there...just didn't stand with the family when time came for Robert to get baptized. It hurt Big Ernest's feelings a little, but he didn't let it get to him.

I definately agree with you, however. The only reason I don't say much is because it means a lot to Little Ernest and some ways it means a lot to my Mother-In-Law. By her taking my nephew and Ernest to church everyday it makes her feel special...If that makes sense to you. But hubby and I did do some talking and we will be either having he take them both or we will be taking them ourselves, so that there are no separations about it.

Thanks ladies. I think I will be praying about it all better this evening.

Wow, that really sounds tough... you're in a tough situation & I think I would feel the same way... right or wrong but I do understand. I think if it were me I wouldn't let Earnest go with your MIL w/o Robert going too & on special days like today (Robert's baptism) I'd keep Earnest with you. Your MIL would probably be upset but your family comes first & it is YOUR responsibility to teach Earnest & Robert, not MIL's. Anyway, (((((HUGS))))) & sorry if I sounded harsh, I don't mean to.
