Today my youngest grand child turned 3! She got her first barbie, a toy puppy that barks and wags, a toy shopping cart, a baby that throws kisses, a buggy, lots of books, lots more things, but her favorite was the one from Meemah and Papa! A Dora talking back pack! I felt honored that she likes mine the best until the other grand mother said, well you should know what she likes best you have her 3-5 times a week (really snippy tone to her voice) ! Well, I had to snap back and quietly said well if you saw her more than holidays and birthdays, you might know what she likes too!I tried to not say it loud enough for anyone else to hear but...... I know it was wrong to snap back at her and I was really trying to be civil, but after she said it for the third time I snapped!
What does all of this mean? Well emotional eating set in. I now have to add two more cupcakes, a tablespoon of carmel for apples, bean dip and fritos to my nutrition planner! I may have eaten more because I blanked out or something. I didn't remember eating the cupcakes and stuff. Someone had to tell me. My daughter in law was horrified that her mother kept saying that over and over as if it was my fault she never wants to watch the kids. That is how I started watching them any ways. My son and his wife just found it easier to ask me because I always made time for the kids.
Oh well. The kids know I love them and my daughter-in-law loves me and I love her! That is all that matters!
