chio bu quite nice
that day my dad was asking, dont know if next time we move out, ash will miss them anot.. haha! i told him dont wry, i will still bring him back EVERYDAY!!!
me n hubby also give my mum quite lil allowances but she treats us very good... if money is the issue, then i think your mother in law is abit too over.. hehe..
i agree with the rest. just be neutral and talk in a-matter-of-fact tone.
before i gave birth to my 2nd one, mother in law offered to take care of the 2nd one once I return to work. I agreed. Thereafter, she told me to just give her the baby to take care and i dont't need to take the baby back so that the baby will think that she is the MOTHER!! (that was what she said exactly)
She also said that she is lonely and got no one to talk to other than father in law. I do pity her but I told her that a child can only have one mother and the mother of my child is me. And i want my child to come home with me every day. All in a matter-of-fact tone.
She has yet to take care of the 2nd one since i thought of extending my leave. So might have to deal with all these later.
RamblingMummy, i think your mother in law too lonely til she wanna have another kid..
omg, so scary..
better not leave your baby with her. she might not return your child!
but lucky your hubby on your side.
i think anyone in the right state of mind wont give his child to his own mother right?
then his kid become his brother!? tts so wrong lahs!
pkshl, dont faint dont faint, sometimes my dad n mum ask pin call me LAO BU....
omg, they will say things like: call your lao bu wake up..
n pin will go: LAO BUUUU~ WAKEY WAKEY~~~~~
Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
i think if you just contd to pick him up daily, soon she might just forget about the "leave keith at my house" part for a while..
btu i agree that you shldnt mention to her about enrolling keith to a CC, just do it first then later INFORM her can already.
yah she does! my parents sometimes teach her very crappy things..
like sometimes she help my mum "mop" floor: she goes: MUMMY! AIYOOO! your room so dirty you know???? you see, i clean already still so dirty!! you ahhh, only sleep sleep sleep...
wah piangs, she learn from my mum cos my mum sometimes weekend will say that to me..
sometimes instead of calling me mummy, she use my name...
kids these days..
Have a good talk wz yr parents. We are our children's role-model. How a child turned out (good or bad) in adulthood is the works of us.
I used to be in the same plight as you are in right now.. And I feel that our MILs really look alike so much!
mother in law kp telling me to let dear son stay with her so that we can have ample rest at nite eversince I started to work.. Initially, I also feel kinda of weird. I mean y cant I bring my dear son home after my work? I know she meant well but I thought I need to have some quality time with my dear son too, somemore I'm working and most of the time, work has taken up most of my time already..
She mentioned not only once but MANY times!! So I tell her, its ok , cos I cant sleep w/o dear son around. Then smile at her. There are times where she will ask my dear son "baobei, wanna sleep with grandma tonite?" I never reply anything and pretend I didnt hear her..
I truly understand how you feel! And I wont let my dear son stay over at mother in law house one. Cos I'm very sure that she will ask for more! I cant let her be so used to it so I wont allow overnite staying.
There is one time I attended my ex-boss's wedding and I left dear son with mother in law but I insist to bring him back with me no matter how late itz..
Right now, I'm glad that I'm a stay at home mum so mother in law never ask for the overstaying issue again cos I'm no longer working. The reason y I choose to be a stay at home mum is becos eversince I started work, dear son will wake up many times dur nite time and refused to sleep. I cant concentrate during my work so no choice but to quit my job loh.
But there are still some issues that I dont see eye to eye with mother in law . But she is still my mother in law, so gotta respect. If she never do thing that is too overboard, I can still close one eye loh.
