    Not at all. I love that my kids are so loved by my family and friends. At the end of the day everyone knows I'm their mother and no one is trying to take over, they just love my kids, too. I love that my kids have close connections with lots of different people. It takes a village and all that.

    This is me.

    I don't deal with it in any way except to seethe inside (irrationally).

    My ILs (MIL & SILs) used to physically take my prem DS out of my arms and leave the room/go outside/dissappear out of sight with him, while doing the whole "my baby/my boy" thing. I already had a bad relationship with them, had mild pnd, and was struggling after a fairly traumatic birth/emergency c-sec. I missed out on most of DS's first day due to him being on oxygen in SCU and me dealing with aftermath of the birth. So it REALLY rubbed me up the wrong way! We no longer see them due to a myriad of other issues (DH's choice). So its not an issue anymore.

    My mum refers to my dd as "my girl" she is the only grandchild and basically "The Girl" the world revolves around her as far as my parents are concerned. My mil on the other hand is indifferent, that bothers me more.

    This is just me and my experience... When I had my 2 bubs, I seriously couldn't handle anyone TOUCHING them, i felt like they were MINE, and I couldn't understand anyone else who wanted to hold or cuddle MY babies. Grandparents, aunts, uncles anyone, I seriously couldn't understand why they'd want to or felt they had a right to ask to hold MY baby..

    So, my opinion is obviously very biased. IF someone had have said MY BABY, I'd have lost my sh1t. They are MY kids, they belong to ME!

    Yes one of those things that bothers me - my mum used to say it when my first was born and being sleep deprived I told her to stop saying it - she still reminds me to this day that I said something rather than just let it go.

    It's my mum who says it and she says it all the time. I would never say anything about it to her. DH thinks I'm mad for thinking it.

    For me it's the attitude behind it.
    If it said in love it's wonderful. When it's said as a form of ownership it horrid

    I just kept say I am the mum you are the ..... Please stop calling them that.

    Doesn't bother me one bit. I do it with my nieces.

    I'm really struggling to see why it would be an issue. The baby is theirs to some degree - their grandson, their nephew/niece. Who cares?

    I find it a tad petty to be honest.
