I get what she is saying, I really do. We are very busy people. So I understand what she's saying. But my argument is (and I told her this!)- My children are the only things I'm going to leave behind on this earth. They are my legacy. To me, they are the most important thing I've ever been a part of and we take parenting very seriously. She just doesn't get it.
I just don't understand why our parents think its any of their business. It's like they're sending the message that we can't handle it and or that we were so difficult to handle that they are trying to save us the misery....great feeling
