What a weekend!

As you all know my family is here from NJ. It has been a hectic weekend. And as you all know I am going through a rough time with my daughter...but My daughter decided to tell me yesterday she had a project due on Tuesday. sooo..of course she got is grounded for this but it was all in front of my family. My grandmom chimmed in..she should of just stayed in NJ where she would have non stop care from your aunt (my aunt is a principal). And then my aunt says to my husband..well she is only 10 going on 11 she is kind of young to be in 6th grade. WHAT!!!! I try my best as a parent to take care of all three of my children, make sure their homework is completed and they are doing their best. So my aunt decides to help her (which is fine) but at the end of the night she said ok go ahead and go to bed Makayla ill do the rest of the fact finding for you. NO WAY! My husband blew up. Its her fault that she is behind on the project, this is our problem now. Everyone has given into her all these years and now we dont give her her way she is acting out. And of course they get all upset with my husband saying he is out of control and outraged. Uhhh...just not good. I know they mean well but BACK UP i am the parent!!! I am sorry everyone..i just had to let it out! Thanks for listening.

Yes. this is how it always ends up. They expect dinner to be made for them, and they expect the kids to be 100% with them all the time. My kids wanna have fun and play. They dont understand that my boys are boys..they wanna be rough and play football. They arent hurting each other or acting out, but to them they think its out of control. They want to sit and play cars with them..well my boys are 8 and DO NOT like cars. I have tried talking with them but they dont get it. They want my life to be like the old Andy Griffith days...I really dont understand but this has been going on my entire life. There is no changing my family. I love them dearly and do miss them BUT this is one reason we moved over 500 miles away. I hate to say it but I love them more when they are away and I can just call and talk. :/ is that bad?

        Wow. I'm sorry all that had to happen while your family was here. I agree they should back up the parent. I hate it when someone contradicts our parenting.

          Well they are heading back home. Last night was very tough! It was my daughters birthday which we went out to our birthday dinner and then my boys had their first scrimmage. I really wanted everyone to attend but of course not. They were upset that I would do something with the boys on Makaylas birthday. We celebrated her birthday on Sunday because I knew her actual day would be hectic. Didnt hear the end of it. So glad we can get our house back to normal.
