Passive Aggression At Its Finest
There once was a hat. It was the most freaking annoying hat ever to be made and worn by a child.
The darn hat kept magically appearing on my child’s head, right after I took it off.
First let me state that while it’s technically autumn, it is NOT winter yet. In fact, Mr. MPB was wearing shorts and a t-shirt. And I was in flip-flops, capris and a light sweater. It’s not cold out!
You see, my husband gave my mother-in-law the stroller carrying Baby MPB while we were out walking.
She kept putting the hat on his head. So, I’d walk up and take the hat off his head. Then, I can only assume my MIL kept putting it on his head because as soon as I’d look back it was magically sitting on his head again.
So, I’d walk up and remove it, stating that it is too warm for him to wear a warm hat.
Then, I’d walk away, look back moments later and the hat was back on his head.
Seriously, this happened probably 10 times in less than an hour.
I was about to lose it!!
The problem was that I couldn’t take away the hat and just carry it, as it was attached to his sweater.
So, finally I texted Mr. MPB and told him enough is enough – I have no idea why he didn’t step in sooner on his own (we have a rule that we deal with our own parents when there is a problem, so it’s his job not mine). Anyways, I told him he had to intervene as Baby MPB was really warm to the touch. I’m not prepared to overheat our child simply because his mother is trying to make some sort of passive aggressive point. Simply, if he didn’t intervene and end this, I would. And I’m confident it would not have be pretty.
Needless to say Mr. MPB stepped up and removed the sweater that the hat was attached to. Game over.
This mamma bear has had enough. I’m currently sitting at my desk pretending to work because it seems best if I just walk away right now. Needless to say, Monday morning, when I leave at 5am for a long day at work, cannot come soon enough!
