First she doesn't remember ANYTHING. We have the same convo a million times. My family has switched churches (major drama) well she wants Mark to come with us. Mark wasn't raised to go every time the doors are open like I was and he gets aggravated at my mother for 'pushing it on him.' I understand. Fine. So multiple times this week she's asked 1) if we are coming to church and 2) If we aren't then we are meeting Key (my grandma) for lunch. And Can we come to that. A) you've told me that a million times this week already and every time I've told you yes I understand.
And on a related note. I've told her the reason I haven't gotten up to visit this new church is because since they started going Merrick hasn't been sleeping on Saturday nights. Like at all. So by the time I get him to sleep at 7 a.m. I just want to sleep too and not get ready for church. She knows this. She continues to remind me every week that they'll be at church and I should come. Yes. Yes I know. And every week I tell you I'll try to be there (And I have been by myself a few times)
?AND this is the part that drives me the most insane. My mother watches Merrick a total of 11-ish hours a week. My MIL the same. My MOTHER acts like she's raising my child. She wants to tell me what he likes, how he acts for her and all kinds of other kinds of nonesense. Anytime I complain about anything she implies that I 'wouldn't know because he's with her most.' She seriously acts like I don't ever take care or see my child because she watches him in teh evenings while I"m at work. She makes me feel like crap and I've tried to explain that to her but just doesn't understand how she hurts my feelings.
?And NOW she's taking credit for getting him to sleep in his crib last night. WAS SHE AT MY HOUSE??? Did she stand by his crib until he feel asleep? NO AND NO. She takes credit because she let him CIO while I was in the shower the night before and then ended up rocking him until I got in there. Then she promptly went to bed while I endured bedtime. And then I did it ALL BY MYSELF last night thankyouverymuch. SKANK SKANK SKANK.?
?I'm sure this was rambling and didn't make sense. I just needed to get it out there and vent. I take care of my stinkin' kid. And you DON"T raise him even if you think otherwise!!!?
