Sis In Law

w - March 8

I am due to give birth in june, and want to go away in Dec with hubbs, now before i found out that my sis-in-law was a real nasty person i said to her that she could mind my baby. Now she has 3 girls of her own and i am having a BOY and she will want to mind it. But I have changed my mind and want to give it to my side of the family. She has big ideas that i will be leaving my child with her anytime that I want to go out (e.g gym yet the gym has a creche) she even made a remark that she is goin to be his surrogate mother. How do I tell her that she wont be minding the baby without upsetting her, she also screams alot and i know for sure that it will make my baby jump or tone deaf and I dont want my baby attached to her too!!! Please your thoughts and advice would be brilliant x

Have you spoken with your husband about it? I would think he might know the most tactfull way to go about it, since he probably knows her better. Otherwise I would just say to be honest: say you've decided to leave your baby with your family. You can still be polite and not come off disrespectfully. Do it as soon as possible though, because it will only get harder with time!

Whatever you do, never leave your child someplace you're not comfortable, no matter whose feelings get hurt. Yes, try to be tactful, but if she's the type of person to sulk, let her sulk. Trust me, plenty of people will get upset through the years as you raise your child your way instead of taking unsolicited advice. NEVER feel guilty about this.
