    Default Monster In Law Stories

    I just thought I'd start this thread...maybe to vent, and maybe to see if i'm the only person in this situation....Just wondering if anyone has any in law stories or future in law stories....

    So, I'll start off...My mother in law always complains if we ask her to watch our kids... She watches her other grandchild all the time...It's just not fair...My sister in law and her husband act like they don't wanna be around their son, every chance they get, they're away from him...and my mother and father in law never complain about watching him...Me and my husband sometimes need a break from our kids, sometimes to clean, sometimes we just wanna lay on the couch and start a movie(eventually we fall asleep)...I'm in school every day of the week and a full time mom...and my husband works hard...but it's like they feel I don't need a break because i'm no longer working.....It makes me so mad...Tonight she called and said my daughter and son were crying and when I got there I told my 2 year old daugher to say sorry and give her a kiss, and when she did, my in law didn't accept her sorry...she just walked us out....but since i had a good day, i'm not gonna let it ruin my night...

    I have not met my in laws, DH says he is doing me a favor. Enough said.

    Sorry to hear yours are acting like that, they should enjoy the company of their grandkids. I know I would, Mom does and I know my Grandma did. It is very sad that they like watching their daughter's children but not yours. Seems to me a classic case of the "My daughter's children are my grandchildren, my son's I don't know". Horrible thinking, unfortunately some grandparents do this and it is very unfair for the kids. My paternal Grandparents were like this, they never seemed to care for us as much as for the children born of their daughters.


    ((Hugs)) and kisses to your kiddos!

    You had a GREAT day...there is no way she can bring you down!!

    My MIL is the exact same way. Actually after 2 sentences into your post I stopped and started reading out loud to Mr. Zombs because his mother is the SAME way!! It makes me so mad. She has my brother in laws kids all the time, she practically raised their oldest. She even has her own room there! (Mr. Zombs old room that is!) So I totally understand what you are going through. We have learned to live with it. I have been told it is because she doesn't have to worry about our kids because she knows that they are well taken care of. Either way it is not fair to my kids.

    Now my mother is a totally different story...
    She thinks she should have my kids as much as I do and wants to spend every waking moment with them. When they are out of school she thinks they should spend those days with her. LOL

    Oh well the MIL's are the ones missing out. Kids are only little for a very short time and they (the MIL's) will miss precious time that they can never get back.

    I get a long with mine just fine. I just don't like some of the things she does and how she only calls when she wants something or expects us to be at her beacon call! lol

    For that and many other things he has told me I have no desire to meet them. In the other hand, he gets along pretty good with my Mom, Step dad and Dad.

    So far I get along better with my MIL than my own mom. My MIL seems to be a good person. The only thing I totally dislike is that she is "Ms. Loose Lips Sink Ships." I hate to say it but it's true. Since I'm a very keen judge of character, I know what's best to not mention. She doesn't blab on purpose (no mal-intents)- she just loves to talk and is a little too honest about everything. I'm very reserved so sometimes I'm uncomfortable. I remember my mom used to cry fairly often because my paternal grandmother hated her ("now my son pays less attention to me") type thinking. It was horrible to grow up around that. My ex-bf's mom was also a nut so I'm glad I left that relationship before I became trapped with her. I have to admit that my almost SIL warned me one night about her.

    I actually do get along with my inlaws, esp my FIL... My MIL just have her moments... She's very moody so I have to be careful not to trip her you know... There's just something weird with her that she tries to compete with me all the time... When I don't compete with her at all!

    One thing about her is that she loves our kids to bits, she doesn't mind looking aftedr them, except for one night that we were gone for 2 hours and both my sons were crying their lungs out, once we walked in the door, she stormed off to her room... But the next day its like nothing happend....

    Just hang in there luv, I think its mweant to be that way!

    I think the thing is...I can't ever say ANYTHING...I was raised that no matter what, you just don't disrespect your elders and that even if you don't agree with something, just keep your mouth shut...My mother in law is old-fashioned, if I were to bring this up to her about how she hurt our feelings, she'd thing I was being disrespectful..and it'd give her another reason to talk about me...But now that I've had a good night's sleep...I'm better...and also maybe she acts like this to me *there's a lot of things* because he's her baby...and nobody will ever be good enough for him...but then again...it's been 5 years since we've been married...GET OVER IT! I'm done venting!!
