Talked to my MIL today. I love my In-Laws but she pissed me off today. Informed me that since I am no longer on the IUD, and the mini pill is so unpredictible one of us should get fixed because we cannot afford anymore kids. She acutally told Jon today that he should go behind my back and get clipped without telling me because once it was done what could I say! Oh and that I better NOT forget my PILL because it will be all my fault if I do get pregnant.
Why does family have to feel that they know what is best for you? I am sorry but yes we have three kids, and yes money is tight, but not so tight that we couldnt afford another one. Plus it is our decision, not ANYONE elses. URGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hang in there. You have one of those in-laws like the rest of us, the know it all kind. I think that instead of George and John running for president, I think some of the inlaws should band together and run! They think they know everything else! I have heard the same crap when we were talking to his family, since we don't anymore, I have it made!! I can't stand those people!!

Of course, it would be nice if I could sometimes remember that before I open my own mouth
She knows because Jon told her about the problems. He was supposed to go up to her house and do some work around the yard but due to the pain I was having this weekend he had to call and cancel. Plus his Mom is the only person he really talk to other than me. I wish there was a way to change that but it is just a little fact of life I have to deal with now, since he feels he doesnt have any friends. Which in my opinion is his own fault, he really doesnt make a effort to make friends, and I cannot make them for him.
