Its ok. People are completely entitled to say whatever they want. I posted here for opinions, doesn't mean I have to listen.

I know, right? How funny someone is wrapped up in exclamation points!

Sadie's attack on your children doesn't deserve a defensive from you or anyone else.

Don't you just love perfect parents? The whole "you have bigger problems cause your kids lose keys" was an unprovoked attack.

I hope when I'm in my 70's that I am more kind to the younger generations. And don't judge entire families cause their kids lose keys.

Sheesh. There's no explanation for that crapl

I wasn't sure if you noticed a few weeks ago... but you have been being followed.

Don't respond. It's only done for one reason.

I think Sadie's post was off base, but she's entitled to think whatever she wants. As for the rest of it, its just silly. I honestly had no idea that I was so interesting to follow...

I'm glad to see someone can take OPINIONS for what they are...you're absolutely right that you don't have to listen or to agree.

I was more concerned about her stating that she was looking forward to getting a snoot full at their family Christmas eve gathering in order to get the courage to attack her MIL than I was about her children being careless with house keys.

OOOPS... While I did say "lose keys" what I really meant was "getting locked out of the house". We still have all our original keys.

Ds is a great kid. Smart, kind, thoughtful & responsible. But he IS just 13, so a few times he's forgotten to grab his keys off the dresser before he ran to the bus! Mostly that happened when we first gave him his keys, it really doesn't happen so much anymore, but as a mom, its something I keep in mind & need to consider.

The whole MIL thing is another issue. There is NO doubt in my mind she was here & snooped! I would love to be able to say how I really feel about her to her, but I cannot. She's would turn on the waterworks & it would all get ugly. So when she does things like this (stepping over her boundaries), I leave it up to dh to talk to her. I would love to have a couple of drinks & let loose! YES, I SAID THAT. After all the years of her crap... I sorta feel like I owe her one! She's said & done nasty things to me, my mother AND MY DAUGHTER, her own grandchild! But I know that it won't change who she is... it would make me feel better to unload some of the true feelings that I have for her, but what would that prove. Only that I'm as mean as she is...and I refuse to stoop to her level.


So...WWYD??
