I am sooo done with this roller coaster of a year
in a nutshell, new mom is way too over protective & paranoid (and I am not being judgmental, she is aware of her hyper sensitivity) and everything was great & continuing to be great BUT when we arrived yesterday, Rile was so excited to see the baby & meet the husband's 9 yr old son (who of course hit it off beautifully & now they are both going to be upset to not have their new friend any more) that he behaved like any normal child wanting to say hello to a baby and she panicked that he was getting too close when he touched her. I mean, as in baby in bouncy seat, rile touching her legs and tummy and once her cheek.
I had wondered why the brother was so stand offish with the baby & figured it was mostly step-mom, new baby issues but apparently she doesn't let the brother "too close" or even the grandparents (husband told me this)
AND instead of talking to me who was right there, she shut her door and called her husband at work, who then called his friend who lives with them and just left for work, the friend returned to the house, handed me the cell to talk to the husband about the wife's issue while she was in the house with me unable to even talk to me about her worries.
husband & friend calmed her down then, and he even went to talk to her about it all after he got off work and then he & i talked more before we left last night. all was well again, then i woke up to an email sent after midnight when she got off work saying they knew we were well intentioned blah blah but it wasn't going to fit at this time.
when are things going to just settle in, level out and STOP fucking with me?
