I don’t know that I can add maything more than has already been said… but I would definitely tell them you do no appreciate their comments or opinions, and especially for them to talk like that about you to your child is UNacceptable. It is none of their business how many children you have…they are not supporting you or the children… I do not have a relationship with my mother or stepfather…I could only take so many years of abuse from her. It’s a difficult thing, but I had to protect my children from the hurt she bestowed on me. When she made my then 3yr old cry last Easter, that was it.
Yes, we should honor our parents. But we do not have to allow them to abuse us or make us feel like dirt.
How sad for your parents that they can’t just accept the joy of another grandchild and realize just how blessed you all are.
