Do not go there
Kids weren’t invited to my cousins wedding last weekend. They offered to have a babysitter look after the kids but I don’t know this person AT ALL and my kids have never stayed with a babysitter. I sure wasn’t going to let them stay with I-don’t-know-how-many-other-kids with a babysitter I dont’ know.
From the beginning I said that I was not going to stay too long. Tommie was at the guesthouse alone with the boys and I know that Zander doesn’t go to sleep easily if I’m not with him.
I greeted the family including the bride’s sister (who also has a daughter aged 3) . She wanted to know why we were leaving so early (it was 8:30 pm and the wedding started at 3:00 pm already). I explained to her that Zander doesn’t like going to sleep without me and would just be giving Tommie a hard time. “Oh you spoil them too much” she said.
I spoil them too much? I of course jumping on my high horse replied with “No I just love them”
I mean come on. My kids weren’t with me. I wanted to go back to them. I wanted to make sure Zander goes to sleep easily. I didn’t want to be at the wedding without my husband even though I think the wedding was stunning and relaxed and probably one of the nicest I have ever been to.
We are different. She doesn’t mind leaving her little girl in the care of someone she doesn’t really know. I do. Don’t judge me on that and say I spoil my kids. Don’t go there.
