Wouldn't bother me (my mom has showered with a kid of mine before) but what matters is that it bothered you. In that case, I'd politely mention to her that you are not cool with it.
Grandparent bathing with LO?? - Page 2
honestly I thought it was weird...kind of annoyed she didn't ask me first but did it really bother me? not enough to make a stink about it. Things have been going well with MIL and I want to keep it that way. If DH isn't bothered enough to say something I'm going to let it go. The simple solution is just not give her the chance to give Della a bath, which isn't a problem if I mention that she is already clean when she watches her...Non problem solved.
I do love the range of responses though because I some people IRL who would absolutely flip out about this kinda thing.
I don't necessarily think it's weird. My son is very close to my mom and it wouldn't bother me (up to a certain age, he's 2 now so probably for not much longer). The only other person that babysits him is my closest friend and it wouldn't bother me if she said she took a bath with him either. I trust both of these people and my son is still a toddler. And he ALWAYS wants me to get in the tub with him (and I do sometimes) so it wouldn't surprise me if he needed a bath and wanted Grandma or his 'aunt' to join him!
I wouldnt like it but thats just me. My brother did take a shower with my ds when he was around 2 months old but that was cause I was busy and he was trying to keep him happy for 20 minutes for me. I take showers with my kids pretty much every other day but I dont think I would like it if anyone besidew myself or DH took a bath/shower with them.
my cousins and I all used to be bath together at sleepovers or whatever, when we were little. I have the cutest pic of my cousin and I we are covered up to our chin in bubbles in our grandparents jacuzzi tub! So cute...I even used to bath with my boy cousins...Gasp!
Now that I think about it, I wonder how I would have felt if my aunt had jumped in the tub with us when we were doing bathtime...probably as a kid it wouldn't phase me a bit, as a mother though I'd be like "wow you all fit in there?!"
