This is just a rant… so, read on if you care to hear about an old granny’s inability to keep a lid on it 🙂
I’m 37 weeks pregnant (yay!). My DH has asthma (boo). My mom is a smoker- in the house too (ick).
Long story short, my mom wants to babysit for us, but I said I’m not ok with the baby (who may or may not have a predisposition to asthma) to be in a house all day that is/has been recently smoked in. I said it would be ok if she wanted to come and do a day here and there or a half day every now and then at our house, provided we keep a clean t-shirt for her to wear so the baby isn’t exposed to 3rd hand smoke. She agreed- “Your baby, your rules, I respect that” actually is what she said.
So far, no problem 🙂
Enter dear, sweet, meddling Gram. I love my Gram, I have lunch with her every single day. She is intolerable to most of our family, and it’s because she’s a cranky asshole. I usually just let her comments roll off, no harm, no foul.
Maybe I’m hormonal, maybe I’m cranky… whatever. Lately she has been MEAN AS SHIT!
Two weeks ago she told me “It looks like you’re starting to carry all over, you’ve really put on some weight! Your ass has really gotten bigger!” Ummm, gee, thanks Gram. I thanked her for pointing it out, and said I hadn’t noticed my pants getting tighter 😛
Today, she told me I’ve “crushed my mother’s feelings” because I won’t let her touch my child. O.o I never said that- she seems to think I expect her to wear a space suit to look at the baby! <I talked with mom after lunch and she said that is NOT at all what she said, she’s ok with what we’ve discussed>
Anyway, //endrant. I love my Grandma, but jeeze louise she’s a mean ass.
