Anybody else's MIL competing with your Bios?
I don't know if its me but, it seems lately that MIL is trying to compete with my BD regarding her grandaughter (my SD6). Everything my BD does or I suggest I might do, MIL goes off and sorts it for SD6. Now, i Know thats not very conclusive, but...12 months ago I investigated swimming lessons for my BD6, OH wanted SD6 to do them at the same time....now because of when he has his SD6 and cost (he couldnt afford to pay for SD6 lessons), they were not booked.....so my BD6 missed out last year because of times with SD6, and because OH wasnt too pleased with me continuing with BD6 lessons without SD6. I put names down on lists then to find a time suitable for both. Saturday evening just gone, SD6 is sitting in BD6 bedroom, both watching a DVD, I go into the room to put washing away and BD6 tells me that SD6 is having swimming lessons but its a secret from me (my BD6 has been taught NEVER to lie and to NEVER keep secrets from me)...SD6 confirms (with a smirk I swear to it) that her nan, my MIL, has booked lessons for her and confirms that it was a secret............why? Apparently OH knew too and never told me...........why? Apparently, it was cos MIL didnt want to "offend" me as she couldnt afford to pay for BD6 to do lessons......well Its not her ob to, its mine, so why would I be offended!?
I was angry because the reasons behind the original non-booking was known, and OH made it clear many times he wanted it done together as "a family"....so, since I didnt need to cater for SD6, I booked BD6 into lessons, first one last night (Monday), I told OH I was going to do it during the day...it didnt go down well, but I think its cos it turns out MIL hasnt actually booked the lessons, just looked into it!
I emailed MIL with advise about lessons because I hd found out that with it being expensive it didnt have to be paid for in one go and direct debit was optional which lowered the payments down. I thought this would help with her paying for SD6......normally she replies.....ive been ignored this time round.....
There seems to be so many little things annoying me lately...pregnancy hormones maybe....but I know what im seeing is happening
