There's nothing wrong with just getting together as a family rather than dropping her off, even if it means you being a little bored for a few hours. ETA: Could you bring a knitting project or your own book or something so you have something more interesting to do while you're there? Good idea, I need to plan better
Quote: Originally Posted by APToddlerMama Maybe it would help to focus instead on the guilt you would feel if your mom ended up acting like a jerk to your daughter. Your daughter may find herself very very disappointed one day, if her grandma, who she loves so much, ends up treating her in the manner that she has treated you which has left you feeling like you don't want to be around her. Literally, my mom is my son's favorite person in the world...
Quote: Originally Posted by princesstutu Yeah, if you don't like them, why would you consider having your child sleep over there? Your child is 2. You get to make these decisions. It doesn't matter if your child likes the adult in question or not; if you don't like the people, don't leave your kid at their house. That's my take on it. Sex addiction doesn't even have to come into it. It reads like you're trying to find a "valid" excuse to say no...
I looked at chasing cheerios yesterday and went to the store last night and bought some supplies and had a really fun day today with dd. I took the sugestion of reading between 20-30 books and that was nice. We blew bubbles and played with playdoh. We colored with markers and spelled out names and words with magnetic letters on the fridge. I look forward to more interactive fun with dd, thanks a lot for he suggestion of that blog, I am not really a creative mom, but...
SO I tried what was suggested today and it did make a really big difference in both her mood and my attitude toward her. I just hope I remember! Thank you both!
the title says it all This is a spin-off of my other thread about sex-addiction and sleep-overs where LOTS of people said they wouldn't do ANY sleep overs for a 2yo. I don't know if my dd is just very mature for her age or if I am just waaaaay out of touch, but she loves sleeping at her grandparents house and does not miss us at all. My concern has never been about her happiness at grandma's house. And she is weaned so that is not a problem. And my mom used to...
Quote: Originally Posted by griffin2004 Under these circumstances, I would not let her sleepover there without you. Porn is what he told you about, but you have no way to confirm that that's the extent of it. I'd need WAY more info before I'd consider leaving DD alone in their care, daytime or nighttime. ETA: "wife caught me looking at porn" is significantly different than "in treatment for sex addiction" He is in addiction therapy. ...
Quote: Originally Posted by RiverSky Yeah, I also totally don't understand why she would have to miss out on anything, besides the actually sleeping-in-bed-at-their-house. You can go hang out with them, eat dinner, hang out all evening, then go home. You can do during the day, ride the horses, play with the cat, etc. I don't get it. I guess I should have really elaborated. I don't know where to begin or what applies and what...
I appreciate the suggestion and will try it today, no doubt. It sucks that no one else had any ideas, though!
