Ian gets candy every now and then, but I try not to give him too much. But it seems like everytime we go to the IL's they try and load him up with candy! It's always unsafe, like hard candies and stuff too. I wouldn't mind a little chocolate or something, but he's still too young for the hard kind. Anybody else have this issue, IL's try and give them stuff you don't approve of? They think I'm mean because I don't let him have it.

Yes, he does get candy but not often. A couple times a week. Well, I guess he gets chocolate chips for going potty but that's a whole other thing! Anyway, my ILs aren't around enough so I can't really recall them ever giving him something without asking me first. They don't generally feed him or help out with that type of thing. My mom would love to give him sweets all the time! But she usually asks before giving him something if he can have it and I usually say yes if it's safe for him to eat because she's only around every couple weeks since we live 4 hours from my parents. They should absolutely ask you before they give him anything if you are there! And you're mom, so you have the final say in what's best for him. Have they actually said you're mean??!! I would have said, "He won't care how nice I was being by letting him eat (hard candy) when he's dead from choking to death!" That will shut them up!

Yep, she calls me mean to my face, but she acts like she's joking. Moron! These people are so stupid, I saw them give a hot dog weiner to a 4 MONTH OLD BABY! I'm not kidding, or exaggerating. She would get a peice of it and start gagging and choking, and they got mad at me for saying something about it. I got up and left, I couldn't take it.

DB and I try not to give DSD sugar at all, she has a bad enough attitude as it is. Well every time she is at Gram Gram's (DB's mom) they load her up on sugar and she is a permanent hell raiser for the weekend!

Occasionally they do. My IL's are good about not loading them up, they are into healthier snacks themselves. The only time they give them candy is at Halloween since we go there to trick-or-treat and for Christmas & Easter. But I don't mind on holidays since we give the kids candy then too.
Thank you KimberlyD0 for my absolutely beautiful siggy!
