Hi everyone I posted this the other day: http://www.justmommies.com/forums/f2...ing-forum.html (Bleh- x-posted on venting forum) about the way MIL treats both myself and DH. Well, she called the other day and immediately after getting off the phone with her DH states she wants them for a few days in August. I said no and I, in detail, explained exactly why. DH said that he understands why I would not want them to go so they won't but it'll make his mom sad. Too bad I say. Until the day comes that she can treat me with respect and as an adult, or rather she could compose herself as one she will not be having our children over.

DH is irked a bit at me because he would like to spend some alone time with me. (She is our only sitter.) I would like it just as much however I am not going to back down this time. I've forgiven her and let things go as them just being quirks to her personality but I've decided that I no longer care for her treatment. I am proud of myself for taking the 1st step to finally truly let MIL know that her behavior will not be tolerated any longer.

*Just had to share my tiny little proud moment.*
