Hmm. One thing? Well my MIL would be a completely different person all together, and my FIL wouldn't be an alcoholic. Or they wouldn't be rednecks.

Sometimes my MIL can get a little opinionated and I just have to pick my battles with her. I wish I didn't have to feel that way.

FIL would be he is such a homebody and we always have to go to their house for him to see the kids. My MIL has been here numerous times (also she owns our house) but my FIL has only been inside 3 times and we have been here for 2 years. I am not counting the time he picked me up at the airport and brought me home or the time I had dental surgery and he drove me because DH had to work....he never came in those times.

That my MIL wouldn't make everything all about her and try to be the center of attention all the time.

That my FIL would call her on it and stop indulging her.

Can I say more that just 1 thing? LOL!
MIL: Wish she didn't know everything, not be so stupid/ignorent/& rude!, and she would be a better grandparent!
FIL: Not sure --not be so stupid/ignorent/& rude, and not look at me "funny"

Hmm, this is a tough one.

FIL: I think I might actually leave him to be the way he is.
MIL: I just want her to come to the realization that Ephesians 5:31 does, in fact, apply to her son.
SIL: Only one thing??? Seriously? This woman needs a complete makeover! I guess we could start with the most important...I'd make it so that she realizes that oh, duh - DH and I are authority figures in her life (when it comes to our children); our word is law.[/b]
Thanks Erin for the bible passage cuz I was trying to quote that to hubby the other night and could not rem. how it went!

lol It's in the bible at least three times that I know of...Genesis 2:24 and Matthew 19:5...as well as the one I posted previously.

I don't think my MIL will ever comprehend that scripture.

Thanks Erin I may have to share that with my MIL sometime...(of course I would then have to speak to her LOL)

I'd change the way my FIL-to-be thinks that he can look down on me and judge me when he's done the SAME exact things he judges me for. I wish he'd get to know me before talking about me and calling me rude, hateful names.

My MIL-to-be? Oh boy. She is SO rude. She treats DF like CRAP and I can't stand it. I wish she'd be a nicer person.

I just cant stand my MIL all together so I cant think of just one thing. I wish she didnt think she knew everything. I wish she would mind her own business. uhmmmm I could go on.

My FIL on the otherhand is ok I just wish he would get some balls sometimes and stand up to my MIL rather than kissing her butt and making her think she is a princess. She always acts like she is so much better than everyone else.

My other in laws are ok. My MIL parents are just weird all together so I dont know what to say about them.
