    Default grrr annoying things parents say/do

    When dd was just born, my in laws would just drop by anytime without ringing and when i'd have her in the bassinette finally sleeping, of course my MIL would wake her up, when i have told her not to. Not to mention my own mother coming over and always and i mean ''always'' bringing some form of lollies/chocolate for the kids... and when i tell her ''no'' and not to give it to them, yes, even right before their bedtime, she tells me to just ''shut up''... and does what she wants. I find it really irritating.

    You only find that irritating? If my mother or mother in law told me to shut up when I was telling them not to give my child chocolate I'd kick them out of my house!
    How rude and disrespectful!

    Your child, your house! Parents either have to do as their told or not participate.

    As for things they do that annoy me. Well, my dad does like giving chocolate or lollies when he can, but if it's a bad time I make him leave them in the fridge. My mum used to make a wounded sound when I'd tell one of the kids off, but I stopped that quickly, she gets the death glare if she even gives the kids the pity look while I'm trying to discipline!

    lol. i got another good one....as I said in my original post my MIL would quite happily wake dd up after being told not to, and dd would start crying and crying, she would say ""ok, we're leaving now, we don't want to listen to the crying baby""... I would get so mad.... i mean, SHE'S the one who would wake her up to start with!! then i'm the one left dealing with a cranky screaming baby. or she'd laugh and say ''can't wait until you go out to a restaurant with the kids, watch how they misbehave, "" and she'd laugh about it.... then we had the last laugh and said ''yeah well, maybe we'll just NOT go with you".. lol.

    Everything my MIL says annoiys me . Not just when it comes to DD about absolutely everything that comes out of her mouth. I hate visiting her and I cringe when I see her walk up the garden path. I put on a happy face and try my best but sometimes we have lil arguments. I try not to tell DH how I feel and I never say a bad word about her infront of DD but I will always feel like this.
