I have nowhere else to vent my frustration so I'm sorry for this useless post but I'll feel better when I can put it down in writing.
My parents are staying with us for a few months, and we've had ups and downs but I won't get into that there's one thing that is really buggin me and it basically sums up their way of thinking and there's nothing I can say or do to change it.
DH has to travel to Melbourne for work, usually I tag along as I loooove Melbourne. We were considering me going with the kids and mentioned it to my parents as they would need to stay here and look after the dog because there's no way we'd get a place in his kennel with short notice. Anyway after thinking about it I decided that it would be too much work for me to go.
My parents suggested to leave DD home with them but I know I would miss her too much so I said no, they are now convinced the real reason is that I don't trust them! They even said it to my FIL as we were talking about the trip and I said I would miss her and that I've never been away for more than a few hours, they said 'she doesn't trust us'
I'm nearly in tears because its exhausting I said something that is the truth but it gets completely ignored and gets replaced with something negative. I wish they could just think 'oh that's nice she's a good mum'
