My Mother Swears SHE Knows Best!
My mother is going through a divorce, and has moved here to Ohio to live with me. I love that Jaime has his grandma in his life so much more, but boooy does she have some different ideas on how to raise him. We don't argue necessarily, just disagree on a few things. For instance, Jaime's in the 95% percentile for height, but only the 50% for weight. So, I offer him more baby food (which he happily takes!). My mother insists he needs more formula. Even though he's gaining weight gradually now and his pediatrician is thrilled, she insists the "old ways" are the right ways. Whew! Anyone else have a mother that just knows it all? :)
She is the type that pushes too far, tells you how to live your life, how to raise kids, and puts her nose where it doesn't belong. I have to ask God for strength, everyday, in dealing with her...but she drives me crazy.
