I've heard many parents complaining about how their own parents/in-laws give them hell over getting nutritious food into the kiddies but my mom is the complete opposite! It's driving me crazy.
I was at their house today and DS hadn't had lunch yet. He was getting crankier and crankier as he got hungry so I kept offering him some of the quiche I had made him but he wasn't interested. Eventually he was offered fruit, bacon, egg....none was wanted. He wanted some of their white bread.
Now I'm far from a tight-*** when it comes to his eating habits (not that there is anything wrong with being a healthy tight-*** hehe) but I didn't want him to have white bread as a main meal. DS was having tantrums by this stage. My mom said I was being "over the top" and if I gave him what he wanted we could all live in peace. Yeah, and if you brought him up he would eat nothing but white bread and have horrible manners! I ended up leaving.
Ugh, anyone else's parents have no respect for what you believe is good/bad?
