I get treated like a child to this day about how I raise my kids, asking me if I remembered to put SPF on them. Yeah, like I need a reminder, I think I've been to this Rodeo before, I have 4 kids, none of them have been sun burned, so I think I got it. They still like to put in their 2 cents...
So give him the salad fork, Kris. LOL
I absolutely can identify with this! When I had my first, ANY time I said ANYTHING about how stressful it was, a problem I was having or anything at all even the least bit negative I got "Well, you wanted to be a mother!" from my mom. She made it clear from DAY ONE that she would NOT be babysitting. I have heard how badly I spoiled them, how "in her day kids would NEVER_____" about so many things I can't count them all and how she can't understand why ANYONE would want kids these days. I also hear the same thing about any cars I buy, houses I buy, stuff I buy. When I was married to my ex, he made a lot of money and we could afford things yet I still heard "Must be bloody nice, Mrs. Moneybags!" anytime I bought something. As a result, I felt like I had to apologise for anything that I bought. I would DREAD showing her my new house or car because I would get that "tude". I no longer have money and yet I still feel that way if I get something nice--doesn't matter that I worked my butt off for it, I still feel like I shouldn't have because my mom won't approve. I sure hope I don't do stuff like that to my kids...
