(Alison, you asked for it..hehehe)
I've come to realize that when you become a parent for the first time in your late 30's that you can be overbearing. My sister had her child last year at 37 and she acts like she is the FIRST woman EVER to have a child. I watched her daughter when she was about 8 mos old and mind you, Evan was like 20 mos at the time. My niece was in her playpen, just awake from a nap. Evan runs in and throws a baby phone in the playpen and hits her in the forehead with it by accident. Now, you know how children can be, I didn't exactly know what he was gonna do until it was too late for me to act. I tried to stop it but was too late. After that incident my sister boyfriend thought I was NOT fit to watch my niece and my sister did NOT take up for me and agreed. I later found out through my mom about a month or so later. I was crushed to find this out. You know if you have other toddlers with babies, there will be incidents with bumps & bruises. It was a big mess and they both got over it.
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my sister dearly...she is one of my best friends as well as my other sis. Her boyfriend is also a good guy but with some flaws we don't understand..
PS. My sister has gotten better over time about being overbearing with her daughter now ;)
