I am at my wits end with my MIL and a little bit with my dad and his girlfriend. I think I might have posted about this before, but my MIL is a crazy baby lady. She has repeatedly asked me if Henry can spend the night with her and I kept telling her not right now since he is nursing. The 4th time she asked, I sent her an email explaining to her how nursing works, supply/demand/pumping and whatnot. I think she finally got that point.
But she is still always trying to steal my baby and she tries to play it off like she is helping me but she isn't. Today we were there for lunch and I literally could not get one foot in the door before she took the baby out of my arms. Then while we ate she insisted on holding him, which was fine. He got fussy so I took him to change his diaper and started playing with him after. Well she walked up to me and said, I want to play with him, why don't you go eat. I said that I was finished eating, and I had been for 15 minutes. She had not eaten a bite, so I told her that she should eat. She said no, she wasn't hungry and that I should go talk with everyone while she plays. Fine, but weird.
Then he started screaming and I took him and put him down for a nap. He was almost asleep and she walked back there and said she wanted to rock him to sleep and I should go talk with everyone. I am trying to give her as much grandma time as possible so I did, but then instead of putting him to sleep she picked him back up and walked into the room saying he wasn't tired. So I told them we were leaving....he was so tired, he took a 2 hour nap when we got home.
She also always talks about how she wants to take him shopping alone. She bought her own stroller and a pack and play so she can do all this.
I just don't know why she has to be alone with him and I am not allowed to be there. When we were leaving she was holding him and trying to get things out of the cabinet and I offered to hold him and she just directed me to get things out of the cabinet for her. Agh.
And then yesterday we saw my dad and his girlfriend for his gf's bday. We get there and he says, "do you guys want to go somewhere and leave the baby with us." Im like no, the whole point of us driving 40 minutes is to celebrate her birthday.
So I admit I might be a bit attached to my baby, but is their behavior not bizarre? Its like they want to play mommy and daddy again. I really don't see myself letting him spend the night until he is at least 2. Am I the crazy one, don't be afraid to tell me if I am.
