Mine came down for a few days last week and was so happy for her to arrive, but then was happy for her to leave! She was wonderful and supportive the first few days....then the 'should's' starting coming out everywhere! Chelsea 'should' be doing this, she 'should' be doing that! ARGH!!!! pi$$ off!! Thankfully hubby was on the same page and was so annoyed with his mother. She cracked the sh!ts when hubby had a go at her!! Man it annoys me but in saying that, I told myself when I was pregnant that people, especially MIL would be giving me advice, whether I wanted it or not. I knew I wouldn't agree with 99% of it, so I have taught myself to smile and nod - this way I just don't get defensive and worked up.
Chelsea has started throwing tantrums - I don't mean a few screams - I mean, throwing herself on the ground, pulling her hair, kicking and screaming for 45 mins!!! Ofcourse MIL told me that none of her kids did this, so this behaviour doesn't come from her side!! I felt like saying 'p!ss off - you just chucked a sh!t before!!!!
So yesterday I had....well Chelsea and I...both had a traumatic afternoon Chelsea woke up from a nap - grumpy and crying as usual.......I wasn't quick enough I heard a loud 'thump' and she stopped crying Then a second later the most horrible piercing scream....she finally did it and climbed out of her cot and then fell out of it I have never in my life felt so sick and terrified - even now I feel sick. My poor baby. She has been standing up in her cot for a few weeks and hubby was to lower it this weekend to prevent this - never thought she would actually go over. She is fine, but has a pretty big bruise on the top of her forehead, but oh my goodness. Poor hubby received a phone call from me..I was crying hysterically and chelsea was screaming!! Not sure why I called him, but he was able to calm me down...oh ***** man - I never, ever, EVER want to encounter something like that again Ofcourse last night I was incredibly hard on myself - I am a bit better and even though her bed is so low now, as soon as she wakes, I run into her.
MissX, I'm glad Chelsea is ok. How scary for you. I was so worried that Sienna would do that, that i was at hubby, until he lowered the cot.
Gotta love MIL, not
MissX I'm glad Chelsea is ok. River crawled off the bed when she was really little and I was mortified! I've never felt so bad. Lots of cuddles.
As for MILs blah to them!

Thank you ladies - goes without saying, MIL won't know about this haha
How's everyone going?
J, are you still with us? We haven't heard from you in a while
Ah in laws. Gotta love em???
Ended up having a convo with DH about making sure we were on the same page with respecting Audrey's needs and he agreed thankfully. He explained to MIL that we wouldn't be waking her up for them and she was rather offended! I bit my tongue!! She was then on her best behaviour ;-)
I've just sat down after she was awake for 4 hours straight!! Finally asleep woo!
How is everyone else? Hopefully everyone's MiLs are playing nice and bubbas cool, calm and collected on this miserable Monday!
Anyone that had a Caesar, did you drive before the 6 weeks? Miss is 3 weeks today and I see myself going batty waiting another 3 weeks before I can escape these 4 walls.
My MIL has booked her flights for when she comes for Sienna's birthday. DH asked when she was coming, she went round and round in circles and didn't answer the question. Obviously we're not allowed to know. She's supposed to be coming on a Wednesday afternoon, if she arrives earlier in the week, she can stay at the airport until Wednesday. DH and I both work, so there's no point her coming too soon
