Firstly, she stuffs dd with chips and chocolate. Then she tells me off for putting 2 minute noodles (just the noodles not the flavour) in my chicken soup for dd.
Her newest insult?
"You've been so lucky with dd. Shes such good kid and rarely gets sick"
FFS!! No! Its not luck, its parenting!
I know that some kids are little terrors who make life almost unbearable and its just their nature not parenting. I know some kids are laid back and take little effort to discipline.dd is somewhere in the middle.
But when nan is surprised that dd will pick up things when asked, tell me what she wants, walk over and sit in timeout when told, eats fruit and vege happily and helps me thats not me getting lucky. Thats me spending nearly two years putting all my effort into her.
I have gone through nine months with dd having awful, TERRIBLE, heart wrenching sleep problems. I've gone through head banging and hitting. I've had her pulling her hair out (not that there is much) and I've had her screaming blue murder because I dared leave the room to use the toilet. I THINK I PAID MY FREAKING DUES!
I feel like saying "hey nan, how about telling me I've done a good job raising her rather than telling me its all down to luck!"
And while im on the topic how about this?
Dad - "god you make things hard for yourself"
WTF does that even mean?
Frigged family! Dont ya just wish you could pick your family sometimes?
OOOHHH... INTERNET FIGHT. WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO? CAPS LOCK ME TOO DEATH?
(Noddy's not fat ffs!)
