MOM struggled with her mother-in-law because of the way she dresses her daughter.
And the husband intervened and things went pretty fast.
Going to Reddit to remain anonymous, the 34-year-old mom spoke out about the situation.
“I have a daughter who is 7 months old. As a person, I like to dress basically,” she explained, adding that she decides to dress in black, white, gray, navy blue and brown.
“My dresses are always one-color (often black) and just simple covers, bodycon, etc. I like to dress my daughter in the same ‘style’ and therefore 90 percent of the time I find what I’m looking for for a boy in the department.
“There is no hidden plan behind this. There are no hidden motives. There is no malice and I am not trying to make any statement.
“I just think I have the right to decide what I want my daughter to wear until she is old enough to decide for herself. My husband loves my daughter’s clothes.
“My mother-in-law doesn’t like this. She wants to see my baby in fluttering pink and purple dresses. While I don’t think it’s wrong, it’s just NOT my style.
“One day a few months ago, she came across a large H&M bag full of girls’ clothes in all shades of pink, purple and red. Dresses, skirts, coats, leggings, shiny shoes.
“I didn’t know what to say, so I thanked her. When my husband came home, I showed him to laugh and said I didn’t have to use them, but we decided to dress our baby in clothes for everyone … the law of us he caught us whenever we came. Everything went well. “
Unfortunately, the couple’s plan failed because mom ran into her mother-in-law at the department store.
The baby was dressed in jeans, a black sweatshirt and Adidas – something the mother-in-law did not like.
“She didn’t say much and left without saying goodbye. She also commented on one of my sister’s stories on Instagram about why my daughter wears these horrible boy clothes,” she admitted.
“On Christmas we went to my mother-in-law’s (we celebrate with him and my family alternately). I found the cutest black jumpsuit with a Rudolf motif that I thought was perfect for the occasion.
When we went there, my mother-in-law was furious with me. She told me that I was an elitist who mistreated my daughter to score points. To confuse her by not letting her look like other girls her age and that I should wait for my daughter to be older and to decide for herself about her identity instead of trying to push my plan for her in these tender years.
“I was angry at this speech and told her that she had no right to tell me how to dress or raise my daughter. Yes, I think the clothes we got from her are ugly and I gave them away.
“I told her that she was sick and that SHE was the one who had a plan and to stop pushing my daughter, otherwise she would never see her again. At this stage, everyone knew that Christmas was ruined, so we went home.
“I took out all the clothes my mother-in-law bought for my daughter and put them in a bag to donate later. My husband said I was a ** hole. I told him she was the one who started the fight. He said though, I could to end it. But I don’t know how I could have ended it. Was I a hole? “
After its publication, many people defended their mother for opposing her husband’s mother and claimed that the children did not care what you wore.
One person wrote: “My two sons-in-law and their wives live on the same property, their children have a six-month age difference.
“The older the girl, the younger the boy. They always give a boy a girl.
“They often see him in steering wheels or pink because, as they say, he lives on a farm. Everything is covered with mud, so who cares if it is wrinkled.
“And he’s two years old, he literally doesn’t care, and he doesn’t know he’s in women’s clothing. It’ll be over in a moment.
“Babies don’t care if their clothes are native, and adults shouldn’t either.”
Another defended himself by buying clothes for boys, saying: “Besides, clothes for boys are wider and more comfortable than clothes for the same age group from the department for girls.
“Even the jogging pants for girls from H&M are much tighter than the boys’, and the ones for girls don’t have decent pockets !! (Horror !!)”
And the third said, “There is no such thing as clothes for boys and clothes for girls.”
