This is a lot to take in..
Well I returned home yesterday from our "mini vacation".
The one good thing that came out of this was my hubby gave me my anniversary gift!! I had told him months ago I wanted a "Mother's Ring"..
So there it was a White Gold Beautiful Mother's Ring!! I LOVE IT!
He said,"see I pay attention when you talk".
Ok so many of my Spark Friends asked me how our vacation to my MIL's went..
Here it is,please tell me what YOU think..
Almost dont know where to begin.
Dakota LOVES his Daddy
When hes home from the road..It's "Daddy..Daddy".
My MIL's husband (we will call him John) doesnt like kids..Well not kids that cry,or misbehave.
If they go to a restaurant,and they are about to be seated next to a family,he will ask to be moved.
So while I'm at there place he starts calling our son ALL sorts of names!!
From your spoiled to your not a boy,your a girl.
Dakota fell down bruised his cheek..John told him boys dont CRY!!
John was nice to all of us while Dakota was sleeping.As soon as he would wake John was MEAN to him!!
He wouldnt say anything in front of my husband.
John made fun of the way Dakota talks..He would say who taught you to say "wa wa"(for water).
Theres just so much.
He didnt want me to pick him up!!
When Dakota was crying for "Daddy" John told me I could spank him,and put him in one of the bed rooms,then shut the door!!!!!
I took Dakota outside.Walked as far away from there as I could..
Crying..Texting my Mom.
Your probably thinking..Why didnt I say something??
It didnt matter.He didnt care.
I love my husband.I wanted him to be able to see his Mom,and Brother.
I felt like I was being selfish.I see my Mom ALL the time.
So I kept my mouth shut.
Then John tells me that Dakota will end up in prison if I dont do something now.
I didnt have to tell my husband John let it slip..He said something to Dakota while my hubby was holding him(something mean)..
My husband WENT OFF!!! WOW Things turned UGLY quick!!
Our son just turned 2 yrs. Hes beautiful..SMART!! LOVING!!
Yes hes a boy..He runs,plays..yells.BUT hes my baby.
Yes I discipline him.BUT I'm not gonna spank him for wanting his father..Or for being a kid.
Things are not good right now between John my MIL,and us..
He had me believing I was a FAILURE for a MOTHER!!
I was up at 5 am.texting my mom,telling her how I had failed.
I just have to keep telling myself John is WRONG!! And I may not always know how to handle EVERYTHING..BUT I do my best.
That I love Dakota more than I could LOVE anyone!! He is my heart,and soul...My world.
I will continue to teach him to be respectful.
Sorry I rambled on,and on.I just dont understand how someone can be so mean to a child.
GOD will take care of this.
If YOU think I'm in the wrong,and he was RIGHT I would like your opinion .
Just so you all know I did my workouts..and kept a food diary while I was there!! I did good,even though they thought I was crazy.
Lots of LOVE to my Spark Family,and God Bless..Christina
