My MIL Just Tried...

..to give my 10-month-old Mountain Dew! And, was shocked and offended when DH and I told her NO way!

Oy!

(Disclaimer: I really do like my MIL, but sometimes the stuff she does makes me )

So now I must know...what ridiculous things have your family members tried to give to/do with your kids?

OYE!

My Dad, bless his heart, gave my niece pork chops when she was about 4-5 months old because she was teething and he thought chewing on it would ake her feel better. Perhaps they did but my sister almost DIED when she walked back into the room.

FTR: My Dad is more than a decade older than my Mom and his generation just did things differently. He has a good heart but some of the stuff he suggests makes me wonder how in the world he raised 7 children into adulthood!

You must be southern. when I read or hear "bless his/her heart" I always hear in my head "what is wrong with you????"

That is crazy. I feel bad I gave my 9 mo zuccini bread from scratch today. I made it though so I know it is healthy & it was less than a teaspoon of crumby bits yet I still feel evil.

What is even remotely bad about giving a baby homemade bread? That sounds a bit over the top.
