We made a choice and set a boundary. Hubby and I don't want to give our baby junk food, especially in his first year. And while I don't really want him to have it in his second year either, I'm sure he'll get a taste here or there of certain things. We are not going to be that strict.
Yesterday, she once again brought up the topic. She told me about how she is going to feed Babykins cookies (and not baby cookies) when she is babysitting him in May while my brother gets married.
I couldn't take it anymore. I finally asserted myself and told her that it really bothers me she keeps saying stuff like that. I told her that we don't want him eating anything unhealthy before he is a year old.
Then, there was awkward silence between us. A lot of it.
D and Father-in-law were in the room measuring for some baby gates that they are going to build. They continued what they were doing and then they left.
