Sounds like my IL's. They expect us to tell them things. But never tell us anything. We always got to hear anything through the grapevine and not know for sure how much is the truth.

My MIL expects us to tell her everything...so that she can share it with everyone she knows!

I don't tell her anything anymore, much to her dismay!

I don't know if its bragging or if its her trying to show everyone else in her "social circle" that she is better than they are. Either way it really gets to me. She also then questions why we do things...

"But why do you want a baby?"

"But why do you want to go to a concert at 8 months pregnant?"

"But why do you want to be a nurse?"

Do I really need reasons for wanting to do things????

How annoying!

Mine is a little bit different. She turns things around to make them into crises so that everyone will sympathize with how difficult she has it, and she ends up being the center of attention.

I have never met anyone who thrived on crisis so much.

My aunt-in-law (lol is that how you say it?) is like that; but she's not irritating about it. She's goofy; so I put up with it. My IL's aren't too bad though. They're pretty laidback.

My MIL will get like that if we don't tell her the IMPORTANT things to her. Right now it is mainly about finding out why my son is developmentally delayed. Every time we see the developmental pediatrician or tests are done, she expects to be informed. Sometimes it can get annoying because then she wants to always put her $.02 in.

Yes, it seems that way to me. They call a lot and want to know every detail of everything. They have always been like that with DH though and he doesn't mind it. So, I let him take their calls.

Oh... and if they don't see Ally every two weeks they act like they haven't seen her in years.

No. They aren't nosy really. They live so far away that it really isn't a problem. They hardly ever call. I guess I'm pretty fortunate!

i'm lucky on that aspect. i talk to my MIL online maybe once or twice a week. she basically asks how Andrew is doing and how things are gonig here, but doesn't push for any details.

i talk to my mom all the time and tell her most everything that is going on, but she doesn't expect it and she rarely calls me. my grandmother does call me if i haven't called her in a while to check up.


I bet this will all change once we have kids and everyone wants to know everything about them...
