Okay, I seriously have the worst streak of luck when it comes to winning stuff. There will be a blog give away, and only like 5 comments and I will still not win. Boo. But its finally happened for me and I couldn't be happier!! WEeee!
Melanie J. over at Write Stuff, wrote a book. YES. I know! She wrote a book AND its been published. And since I am on a conquest to read 50 books this year, it is just perfect that I won her book! Pretty awesome right?!
So happy. *long, deep sigh*
You know what I am NOT happy about though? Something completely unrelated to what I started with of course!
The last two times my mother-in-law's babysat my kids, she's swatted my baby. My BABY.
The first time, he was getting into one of her cupboards over and over and over, so after awhile she swatted his hand.
The last time, he kept going up the stairs and apparently that deserves a spanking on the bottom.
AND apparently my mother-in-law thinks its quite funny. Like its the cutest little thing to watch his lip quiver and cry because she HIT him.
What would you do? My relationship with her is already strained (more on my end than hers), I don't really need another reason not to like her. I WANT to like her, believe me I do. And sometimes I actually really do. And I'd like to keep it that way, but not at the expense of a little 11 month old who I care much more about. (edit: Kristina asked if my husband could talk to her, which is what I would normally do, but he's out of town. And she's supposed to babysit TOMORROW. So yeah. Poo.)
At least I have a book to throw at her if things don't get better...is it a hard back Melanie?
(Did you see that?! Did you see how I totally came back around to the beginning to wrap that up. Awesome.)
