Okay so yesterday my MIL calls me from walgreens to see if I need anything. Well I just ran out of milk so I say yes and ask her to get one of those booger sucker things for Damien's nose cause he is a little sick. Well she says " Just use a turkey baster!" I of course think she is kidding and say yeah right I WOULD NEVER DO THAT! So we hang up and I see her pass by my house to go to hers well guess what she went to get. The TURKEY BASTER! She comes in like she is ready to do it. I tell her there is No way that thing is going up his nose and she says "why not??" Like I am crazy for saying no. Well it was in two pieces you know how the head of it comes apart from the tube thing and after I say no she sits down to put this thing together! I again say what are you doing I am not using that!
It gets worse. Damien has been sick so he has not wanted to eat alot. I was feeding him and he ate about half and was done. She grabs him from me and says " Are you still hungry?' So, she gets the spoon and starts feeding him again. I tell her that he is sick and not hungry but of course if you force feed him he will take it. I tell her he is fine and she gives him another bite. By now I am so ticked so I say Joyce he is MY baby and I know when he is hungry please stop feeding him. Well she stops but still has him as I was finishing up dinner. As I set the table she goes "Oh Damien do you smell all that food" and gives him another bite! I took the food and whiped it into the garbage. Then I went upstairs to get him some pants cause the blanket I told her to keep on him she took off. Well I was up there trying to find his pants as fast as I could cause I was scared she would Baste him. I sent my daughter down to watch her. Then when I come down he has a BEER can in his hands she tells me his teeth hurt and it is closed and cold. I say I don't care he can't have it. By then I was shaking so I say I need to nurse him to get her away. I went in my living room and she follows me. As I am nusring she is kissing him. Seriously my boob was almost in her mouth and what do I do say move you crazy woman? Then everytime Damien eats he holds my hand (it's so cute) So she takes his fingers and puts them in her hand so he holds her while I am feeding him and that is OUR thing. I could not take it anymore I got up and said he had to go to sleep. Oh and I also asked her to get diapers. She knows I only use pampers and I pay her when she gets here cause she always runs for me. Well she buys the walgreens brand just to get under my skin. UUUUUUUUUUGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHH
Well she finally left when I said he had to go to sleep Thank god but would you gals have went off? She is still my MIL so I feel like I have to be civil but I swear she tries to get me to go off. I can't wait till we move away from her Thanks for listening if you got this far. I feel better
oh, all of that would drive me nuts. makes me crazy when my 5 year old tries to kiss Jack when I'm nursing him, I can't even imagine my MIL doing it.
hope he's feeling better, poor baby.

haha Lauren, "scared of the boob" that made me laugh. My MIL never breastfed any of her kids, so she's pretty stand-offish about breastfeeding too.
I can't imagine that Tia!!!! WTH!!!!!!! Are you kidding??? Kissing while breastfeeding?!?!?!?!?!??! She's got some issues it sounds like. I'm sorry.
