Looking at Gransnet today I suddenly wondered what my Mum would have posted if there had been a site like this when she was a Granny. Perhaps -
*Am I being unreasonable* to think that if my DD2 insists on still breastfeeding her DD2 that she could at least do it in private in her own home and not tell (in fact boast to) my neighbours and friends about it? What will they think of my family. With all the excellent baby milks on the market there is no need for this generation of women to be like milk cows.
Also - am I unreasonable to expect a little more consideration, given the state of my health, than to have her arrive here every other week, in the afternoon with two noisy toddlers (she childminds my other DGD 3 days a week) and a baby.
Meanwhile, my MIL would also be on AIBU -
*Am I being unreasonable* to expect my DIL to bring my 2 DGDs to see me more often than once a fortnight. They only come when my DS can drive them here, so it has to be a Sunday as that is his only day off. I know it means 3 buses for her but the children are free. She seems to think I should visit them = three buses at my age! I'm nearly 60 and haven't been on a bus for 20 years. By the way, I think the real reason is that she is thick as thieves with her mother and has her over everyday playing with MY DGC.
What would your DM/MIL have posted?
Your partner - would you change them?
No grandchildren - a minefield?
Bedtime essentials - what are yours?
