If anyone sees my mind can you please send it back to me?
Well, yet another weekend of semi-drama. I got home Friday night and BF asked me about when I took SD9 out Christmas shopping. We were in a store and I was going to send her to grab some tape. She informed me that she didn't think she was allowed to go by herself so I told her she's not a baby and I would be able to see her anyway. In any case, we didn't get tape and I didn't think anything else of it. Well apparently Supermom had a HUGE problem with this (because she feels the need to pump her for information when SD's with her) so he was asking to make sure that I wasn't going to send her somewhere where I couldn't see her. I told him of course not but I didn't see how it was a big deal. Obviously I'm not going to set her loose in Walmart but she's not 3. She can be trusted (or so I thought) to handle these small tasks on her own in a smaller store. The problem is they treat her like a baby - she's never given the opportunity to prove herself. She's perfectly capable when she's with me but not with them because they do everything for her. Plus with the size store that we were in, I would have been able to see her and all entrances and exits so if someone tried to nab her, she would have screamed and I would have seen her. Well Supermom sent an email saying that under no circumstances am I to let her out of my sight, blah blah blah. So I flipped out on him because I'm annoyed with how he treats her plus he was taking BM's side. I went to bed and the next morning I apologized for flipping out and he apologized for taking her side. Turns out he and I are totally on the same page about this but according to him, what it boils down to is BM being insecure and threatened by me so any move I make is going to cause a huge problem with her. I think the whole thing is ridiculous. She finds something to bitch about whether I'm disengaged OR I'm doing things with her. Does the nightmare ever end? UGH!
On another note, I spent the whole weekend crocheting Barbie clothes so I'm half bald from ripping my hair out. Actually, some of them are fairly easy so if that's something anyone's interested in, let me know and I can send (or post) the patterns Merry Christmas, Steptalkers!!
