My ex Mother in Law called today to tell me she wanted to by some stuff for the baby. Okay I am only 4 wks 3 days. My Mom does not believe in buying anything until your are at least 3 months. So she freaked when I told her this.
Well we went to a friends house to watch the superbowl. Well she had this huge pack of diapers and was like take these.I need them out of my way. So I brought them home. my Mom called and my DD told her we had diapers for the baby. She is having a huge issue with this.
What would you do in this situation?
Thanks so much

Um, why does your mom care if someone else is buying you something for your baby even though you're just barely pregnant? So your mom doesn't want to buy you anything yet, okay. It's not like YOU are buying stuff already and she's upset about it, it's a gift, and in all honesty, doesn't really affect her or anything. So why should she care? It seems a little ridiculous to me.

I would just thank your ex-mother-in-law for the diapers. That would be the most gracious thing to do. If you mom is upset, then, that is really her problem, not yours. It would have been rude to turn it down, so you did the right thing.

Tell you mother that you were being polite, and thought the gesture was very nice. Tell her if she is not comfortable buying anything yet, then don't.

Thanks, my Mom was just raised to believe that you did not buy anything until 3 months or you would cause something to happen.... I know, I know. That is just how my Grandmother believes. But MIL knows this store where SIL lives that is going out of business and she wants to stock up on blankets, onesis, sleepers and things like that too.

i feel good about my pregnancy and BELIEVE that everything is going to be GREAT this time!
