Dh was never hugely keen to get a playpen but i asked what he wants me to do with ds when i need to use the bathroom, get food etc as he is already on the move (ie moves off his playmat & faceplants onto the tiled floor). So he agreed it would be a good idea.
However he has always listened to his parents opinions & usually goes with what they say, even though he is an adult & they no longer have a say in his life.
So yesterday dh asked his dad for help to pick up a playpen as it wont fit in our car. I wasnt there, but apparently fil started saying stuff like 'oh they are very expensive & they take up so much room, i wouldnt get one, we never even baby-proofed with you & you were fine'.
So now cause what his parents say must be true, it seems we are not getting a playpen 😐
And thankfully we have already bought the baby proofing stuff & i told dh a tiny white lie, that i have lost the receipt, otherwise we wouldn't be baby proofing either.
This happens constantly & its so frustrating! Seriously dh you are an adult. When you parents express their opinion you can just listen & move on, you don't have to take it as gospel!!!
