DD, Lily has a make up soccer game this evening at 630 and it's in another town. The in-laws are going and we currently aren't getting along very well.

I realllly really don't want to go. I want to go watch my kid have a good time. I don't want to waddle out there and be miserable while sitting next to two people that I'd like to strangle. I don't want to sit in the car for 40+ minutes. I don't want to get dressed, yes, still in a robe at almost 4:30pm! I don't want to miss The Vampire Diaries tonight and wait until tomorrow.

And I feel really bad that I don't want to go.
Okay... now I'll go try on every piece of clothing I own and then break down into a puddle of self loathing. I'll fix my mascara and eyeliner during the car ride.

Fix your hair, put on some make up and suck it up mama. Let your DH entertain his parents. It will be over before you know it!

Or, come down with heartburn and let DH take her. There will be other games.

I cannot STAND my mother in law. She's the definition of terrible mothers in law. So I totally get where you're coming from. Spending any amount of time with her is infuriating. I'm not the least bit sad that we moved over 2000 miles away from that side of the family. I could share some horror stories about last time I was pregnant around her and all the crap I had to put up with. Looking back, it's so bad that I can't help but laugh (so I don't cry).

Unfortunately, they are family. Which means that you have to put up with them, as hard as it is. You're going through a rough patch AND you're very pregnant. These two things do not go well together. You just have to get through it, and hope things are better soon. If you absolutely can't face going tonight, that doesn't make you a bad mom. Every now and then, we just need some time to ourselves. You're entitled. Don't feel bad about it.
