Quoting ♥ Flame'n Nuisance :" My mum would have done the same. I know she means well, but it irks me sometimes.. Sometimes i get ... [snip!] ... think.. other times i let her 'help' because i know she is being thoughtful and thinks her opinion/help is of great value lol."That's what I usually do. And most of the time I love the help! But this is just so irritating to me lol I have kept him alive and healthy for 15 months, I think I got it down by now
Quoting Tiger Lily ♥:" I would simply just tell her, "Mom, this is my son and I know what's best for him. You can trust that I'm not going to sit and let him starve.""That's basically what I told her, I guess I just need to calm down and say it a little more nicely lol. Thanks!

[snip!] ... to leave to establish a life where I was the parent and not the glorified nanny figure... Is it something that happens often? "Not too often.
