I don't know how relevant this is to this category, but just looking to vent! My sister in law is CONSTANTLY commenting on pretty much everything we do with our child. She still sees my husband as her "baby brother" and feels as though she has to hover over us--especially since she already as a kid ( 5yo). So basically thinks she's a pro.
I've managed to let some of her comments roll over my shoulders. I live in NYC and her in Boston, so we do not see each other often. Her family takes yearly family vacations, shes constantly making comments that we should be doing the same. That we are doing a disservice to our daughter and how it's important for our family. Living in NYC is EXPENSIVE!! Our financial goal is on saving and buying a house within the next 2 years or so.
She's constantly making comments that we are cheap, live in a crappy neighborhood, and makes sly comments that we can do more for our daughter. My husband has learned to ignore her, but I really just want to smack her. I'm going to lose it. I'm a stay at home and I do A LOT for my daughter. She just turned two and honestly, it's not the greatest idea to go to freakin Jamaica when our daughter won't remember a thing.
We'll be heading there next weekend and one more comment and I'll lose it, any advice on maintaining sane and telling her to basically STFU. Thanks.
