My parents are visiting with us for 2 weeks. I have 2 kids, DD 2.5 and DS 14 months. Things get a bit crazy around here sometimes.
This evening at dinner time DS was having a tantrum. I had literally sat down 1 minute before hand, and I had even taken the kids upstairs so everyone else could eat with some kind of serenity. My mother then says, "I'm going to take THAT CHILD out in the stroller for a walk."
I cannot believe she referred to her grandson as that child. She said it in a really mean way too.
I grabbed him, walked outside and went for a walk.
I am so mad at her right now.
To be honest, I really don't have a good relationship with her anymore. She has lied to me before and I just feel our relationship has deterioted.
my mom and i have a pretty roller-coaster-style relationship. it's like a minefield, one wrong step, and one of us is going to explode.
the best thing to do (since she is your mother) is to let her know that what she said/infliction was not cool and that you expect some sort of respect towards your kids. especially when they're so young and don't understand.
