Grandma WAY overstepped!

My mother in law watched our 8 month old daughter this morning for two hours. It's something we've had in the works for a while now, because I had a prenatal appointment. It was literally just TWO hours. And in that time, she took her to Claire's at the mall and got her ears pierced.

First off, she never asked us. Secondly, she KNEW we didn't want it done until our daughter could ask for them herself!! It's something we've actually talked about before because she thinks all baby girls should have them done right away. This is the FIRST time she's watched her alone, because my sister, who normally watches my kids, is on vacation out of town right now.

I came home, and my daughter is crying, because she keeps touching her ears, so of course they hurt even more. I am absolutely livid. She hurt my child, went behind our backs doing something she knew we did not want, and she lied, because I know those forms ask if you are the parent/legal guardian, and she is not. She does have the same last name, and she's only in her 50's and looks pretty young, so I can see why they'd believe it.

My husband is even angrier than I am. I don't even know what to do. Part of me wants to call the police and report her for fraud or criminal impersonation or whatever the hell that would be. I also told her that it would be a very, very long time before she was invited back into our lives, and never before she'd be left alone with our kids.

    I’d take them out so they can heal. And then I’d speak to the manager at the place they were done at because they fucked up. And then Grandma wouldn’t be seeing my kid for sometime. And never alone.

    I'd threaten her (and Claire's) with legal action just to spite her and let her know who's boss. She'd never be alone with that child again. Piercing guns are the worst. They should be illegal. If she was old enough to have it done at a real shop with your consent it would be a different story. Watch her closely for infection. What a stupid bitch.

    She absolutely will not! I don't even want to see her right now, and my husband has already uninvited her from any holiday celebrations this year. I honestly can't remember ever seeing him this mad before!

    It wouldn’t be fraud or criminal impersonation, but there are state laws against tattooing or piercing a minor without their parents consent. The punishments range depending on the state.

    I would certainly not have her in our lives though, after that.

    Thank goodness your husband is on the same page as you. Did you/are you going to take the earrings out?
