In-laws...

I truly envy those who have good in-laws. How can people you have never met create a whole life plan for YOUR family and then tell you that you are a horrible mother because you don't follow THEIR plan? And how is me staying at home to raise our child the equivalent of being a bad mom? Yeah there are times when financially we struggle to make it and we have to make sacrifices, but so does every family. That's what families do. It's just so frustrating to always hear how horrible they think I am. His mom even tried to get him to move out on his own for a couple years when she found out we were married and having our son. She basically thinks I am the devil and doesn't try to hide it. She doesn't even speak to us anymore and yet she wants me to send my one year old from oregon to ohio to spend the whole summer with her and she is mad because I won't do it. Ugh...it's been a fun week! Lol

    Oh yeah he always does. He's great about all of it. I know it hurts him to though. I think it's harder for me seeing how it bothers him.

    We just keep telling them we have a life plan that we both like and have discussed. They don't like that but it is how it's going to be. We have a rule in our family that my husband and my relationship comes before everything. We don't let anyone have a say in it or come between us. It is hard for his family but I want to raise our kids to respect their spouse and have a successful relationships. Plus it keeps our marriage strong because I know that my husband will always put US ahead of everything else. And he knows I do the same for him.

        Stay at home wife and Mom. I have an older step son that is an amazing young man. My husband and myself have a little boy and newborn girl. Balancing life isn't always easy but it's always worth it :-)
