If you are considering marring (or are already married) to a “mommy’s baby boy”……my condolences.
I was that girl…..and I didn’t realize what I was in for before I got married to them.
When my first husband and I got married, he was working in day camp as a life guard and I had a real job with benefits and pay. During the year (after a lot of coaxing) he got a job in a school part time as a gym teacher. I got pregnant right after our wedding. We panicked a little, but since we both got along with my mother-in-law at the time,we all decided that it would be a good idea that she moved in with us so that I could keep working and we didn’t have to pay a babysitter during the day.
Before Kayla, my daughter, was born, we were a having a few problems due to the fact that whenever my husband and I fought, he would always include his mother and her opinion…..and he would tell me…:”See, my mother agrees with me..”
I started slowly but surely resenting his mother and I didn’t want to live with her after a while, but I had no choice. The baby was coming and my husband at the time still didn’t have a good job.
So, instead, I simply became a bitch. I came home from work everyday pregnant and angry and the duo got the raw end of it.
Kayla was born and six weeks later I had to go back to work. This was understood from the beginning and if I didn’t go back to work, we would have no money to pay our bills.
I nursed Kayla whenever I could, but, of course, during the day, while I was at work, I could not nurse her and I left milk for my mother in law to feed her with.
After about a month, I started noticing that when I was home, Kayla would not sleep until I nursed her. I found this to be weird – especially since my mother in law was the type to not let a baby cry even for one second. How did she manage to keep her from crying without nursing her?
I confronted my husband with this and he told me I was crazy.
