For me I suppose it would have to be that my parents look at me sometimes that I am stil the young girl who left her room a mess, made some crazy decisions, never fulfilled my obligations type person. Everytime I talk to them about certain things like maybe having another child they say..."That's all you need" I guess they seem to think that since my sister left her child with them that I would do the same. We have a 5year old DS and ever since he has been born my mom freaks when I ask her to watch him so me and DH can go out. She says " You had a child he is yours to raise" And I am like whoah I am not asking you to "raise" him only watch him so we can catch a movie and some dinner. I try not to take it to heart because I know this is a defense system they have built up since they seen one daughter give up her child. We are never close to them due to the military career but when we are on a visit they still don't really want to keep him. I blame my sister more for doing this than my parents. I about fell out my chair when they said that they wanted to pick DS up and bring him down for a couple weeks this summer. I keep my little sis for about a month for them every summer so they are trying:) I think the older DS gets the more they are starting to see that I am a different person than my sister and would never do anything like she did. There are still times though. So that is one thing I would want them to accept...I am not my sister.
So what about you what is something that you would like them to understand, know or accept about you? I hope you all have great weekend. I am off to the soccer game( snack mommy) and then on to some errands. I am sorry I haven't been here much this week I am fighting some bug and went to the doctor yesterday and sat for three hours, had blood drawn and will get the results Monday so hopefully I will know what is going on with me. I do not like being sick YUCK:) Until then have a good one see you all later~~~~~Michelle
