Is she like a 2nd mom or do you cringe at the thought of having to go for a visit?

Cringe? Try a total mental breakdown.

Anyway we don't go visit her anymore. Not worth it. If she wants to see us she can get on a plane and come here. We aren't masochists, we aren't going to fly to CA to be tortured and humiliated. She can come here at her own expense.

Thanks Ryan and Alex's mommy for the siggy!

She's my husbands mother, nothing more. And will be my child's grandmother too, I guess...sigh. lol

I'd rather not visit. All she does is complain.

Cringe. Its OUR fault she smokes like a chimney and literally won't open a window even a crack. It MY BABY's fault her POS cat attacks her when she doesn't even know the cat is there. It's OUR fault she doesn't have a car and doesn't know how the bus system works. So no, we don't see her often. She's also extremely two faced. She talks about SIL like she's the biggest piece of crap she's ever met, but acts like her best friend. Note to self. I figured that out very fast about her.

We aren't close, and don't see or talk to each other very often since we live across the country from her. I don't hate her, but I don't like her a ton either. It's kind of a little of both.

She is nothing like my mom and I will never call her "mom".

I love my MiL. I think I'm one of the few LOL that love their MiL. She is so kind and really loves my son. Even though my son isnt her son's son, if that makes sense. He is just technically stepdaddy but that doesnt mean anything to us. he is DADDY.

OKAY! I have to say...That's the rudest thing I have EVER read!!!!!!!!! How dare you say something like that! I know I don't know your MIL. But she's still your DH's mother! She raised your DH. Obviously she did something right...You married the man!

Ok. . How the crap can a person that you obviously have never met, cause you to say something so despicable! Let's just hope and pray that you never get to be a MIL... EVER because I don't know you, but you obviously are not a nice person so we know you would for sure end up being slammed on a board just like this one!

Umm wow that was rude and wrong. WOW.

I cringe at the thought of her even coming over. DH will tell me she's stopping by just to see me react sometimes. lol

❤ Big Thanks to Vicki, trishosaurus, & Shortcake for the great siggies of my kids! ❤

my MIL and SIL's dont know boundaries. i can't stand the thought of having MIL around my children and i'm not all that happy when i have to go over there. They come to my house and tell me how to parent my children. they show up and assume they can just stay and CLEAN my house. And MIL missed her precious 1st granddaughters *the first one she has been allowed to see in 13 years* FIRST BIRTHDAY cause her sister "needed help coping with BECOMING a grandmother" so they aren't very nice people. smokers, drinkers, and conspiracy theorists and i dont trust her with my kids. BUT and that is a big BUT.... she is and always will be my husbands mother. I love my husband with all my heart. so within reason i let it all go.

I am probably one of the few..But I do love my MIL..She does drive me crazy at times..but overall we chat on the phone and she loves me and DS, she is always thinking about me and she is a really sweet person. She does overstep her boundries sometimes..but we are talking within mins again

This is my first visit to this board. Im usually on July '10 PR. But I really hate my MIL. She has a filthy mouth and with curse you out with no holding back if you do anything to set her off. She will throw nasty insults at you and also never apologize. I never show any disrespect even when she is attacking me. I dont want to lower myself. Im feeling at the end of my limit lately and dont want her in our lives anymore. I dont know how I have put up with her for the last 6+ years.

Just adding that I was really shocked by that one person's "dead" comment too! She never even met her, how can she say that??! What would her DH think if he saw that???

Mom to Eliza (4 years old) and Colin (born July 15, 2010).

Definitely glad we don't live even in the same state as MIL anymore. The last time Katie was around her, I ended up walking the floor with my DD all night because the nut job traumatized her.

I cringe sadly

She has to be one of the most controlling people I have ever met. She is lazy, and insists that everybody cater to her every need. She is highly religious and insists that our son is Mormon and home schooled. My boyfriend and I aren't even Mormon!
