I kinda stood up to my mom yesterday. She watched my kiddos while I went to my prenatal appointment. By the time I got back I had a huge sinus headache. When I got there I had to sit and listen to her and my sister fight (WHY do they think they can live together?). Then they gave me an outfit to try on Mady. As soon as I took her pants off she peed on the floor. She doesn't do real well when there are a bunch of people around, I don't know why, she just doesn't. So I was changing her and I was going to clean up the floor. My mom started yelling that she had just shampooed her carpets. Then she turned to Mady and still with her voice raised said she was going to start making Mady wear a diaper at her house. I just kinda snapped and snapped at her *Stop it! That doesn't help anything!* For those that know me well, I don't do this. I had raised my own voice, but I was so frustrated. She's two and a half, give me a break. It's not uncommon for a child her age to have accidents. Telling her she's going to have to wear diapers again is not something that helps. I left shortly thereafter. She can't understand why I got upset with her.
