My mom and my MIL have this insane competition going about "Who Appears to Be the Better Grandma" The Hurricanes (my two boys) spent last weekend with my parents, so of course, MIL was dying to prove that she's a better grandma and wanted to keep them yesterday afternoon. I told her no....I don't want to keep the kids from her, but they aren't some prize in a contest.
My mom and dad HATE my SIL b/c she is and has treated me very badly in the past. They also don't like the way she tries to be the Hurricanes' "mother"....In fact my dad told her recently that she needed to have her own kids and stop trying to raise my.....I love my daddy!!!!!!!
My parents adore DH however, and are constantly wondering how on earth he came from that family!!

lol I wish my mom could come on here and answer this! She HATES my inlaws!! She was so pissed at the way they were treating me during my wedding planning, every time I would call her crying she wanted to call my MIL and tell her off. At my wedding, my mom whispered to me "The next time I associate with these people will be when you have a baby". Well her suprise when 3 months later we were pregnant lol. She said "###### I was just with them in April, you couldn't wait until longer!" Of course she was kidding, but she avoided MIL at all costs at my shower, and they didn't see each other at ALL when I had the baby. SO yea, she hates them as much as I do.

My mom doesn't know my IL's since she lives in GA and we are in OH. She only goes by what I tell, which my main complaint is my BIL & his wife.
My dad has no opinion either way but my IL's hate my dad but I think it is because of his life choices of drugs & alcohol.
Thank you KimberlyD0 for my absolutely beautiful siggy!

I swear my mother and MIL were separated at birth! They say mean things about each other away from each other but act like the best of friends when they are together. My Dad has never met my IL's and in all honesty out of the four parents he is the only one that DH and I get along with. He is always appalled by what we tell him about things they say and do but itsn't the type to make a judgement without meeting them.

Thanks to Claire1979 for the amazing siggy.

They really like each other. I think they realize they have parenting differences but they don't focus on that and seem to get along really well. They have gotten together before without us if that tells you anything. It's nice to have no drama there so that holidays and other events aren't stressful in that respect.

They HATE each other.

We told them all to suck it up and act like adults when they have to be together. We refuse to do two parties for every birthday...they should be able to be civil to each other for a few hours a few times a year. And if they can't, then whoever is causing the trouble will no longer be invited.

We'll see how Hailey's first bday goes.
