Weird feelings towards MIL
I don't know why I feel this way. I really don't. My MIL is a very nice woman who has always been great to me, but I feel really weird when she holds Avery.
I don't get that way when other people hold her. In fact I usually get excited that Avery is being social with people since she's usually so afraid of strangers. But when my MIL holds Avery or even just plays with her it's like there are tiny alarms sounding in my head. I try to ignore it. She loves Avery and is very good with her, so why does it bug me so much? I feel like I'm holding my breath the whole time she plays with her...
Are my mommy instincts going haywire or what? Have any of you felt this way towards a specific person?
Hopefully you can figure out what the issue is!
Avery isn't her daughter, she's her GRAND daughter. I guess I don't want her taking over either.
I feel bad for stating all those about her, but.....they are true. I am not sure what is causing you to feel this way, but we have "Mommy instincts" for a reason. However, I hope this is just a phase or something you are going through. It isn't jealousy, is it? Being jealous of her spending time with your daughter...taking that time away from you?
