Okay, so here's my latest complaint. My mother-in-law REFUSES to answer my phone calls. And it just so happens that all of my calls to her are about Libby. Usually inquiring as to whether or not she'd like to watch her (she NEVER sees her.. after calling her "my baby" and LITERALLY not giving me two seconds of time to bond with my child in the hospital, she has seen her MAYBE 3 times in the last 3 months).

She never calls me back. If she has something planned for the times that I would like her to watch libby, she just doesn't bother to let me know. If she wants to watch her (rarely) she calls my husband and tells him "Tell jackie I'll watch Libby." And then when I drop Libby off, she acts completely normal.

I told Jared this morning that his mom would NOT be watching Libby again until she felt the desire to answer my calls. Fine, don't answer when I call.. let it go to voicemail.. but then LISTEN to the voicemail AND CALL ME BACK!!!! And have the #%*$ urge to actually SEE your granddaughter.

Personally I think she's banking on the day when Jared and I aren't together and she can fight for full custody of Libby. right. that's gonna happen.

Am I being crazy or too over-protective? Jared was a little offended that I said it.. but I'm sorry.. I just don't think it's right that she watch her until she's okay with conversing with me.

That's annoying for sure. She shouldn't expect to see Libby if she can't even talk to you on the phone! I think what you said is fair.

Wow. I wouldn't be letting her watch your DD if she can't even answer the darn phone!
