    Default Mother-in-law or MONSTER-in-Law?

    Hi all! Here's a fun topic as we head into "Mother's Day"!

    How do you get along with your significant other's mom? Has she become like a second mother to you -- or rather is someone that has you ready to pull out your hair?

    For those with kids, do you view her advice as helpful or interfering?

    If distance separates you how do you foster your relationship?

    Finally, how do you handle Mother's Day? Do the two of you exchange gifts/cards? Do you have something special planned? Share!

    I get along well with my MIL. She lives several states away but we call each other to chat every once in a while and I send email updates on DS.

    I said this in this thread in the anything board, but I will copy it here too.

    I love my MIL. She is one of my closest friends. We live 400 miles apart now, but we are still close. We text or talk on the phone, but mostly text. I will send her a card with some pictures of the kids ( like I do every month, actually) for Mothers Day. I am very blessed to have her. I love her advice on the kids to be honest. I know that is rare, but the stories she tells me about my dh and his brother and sister are great and I enjoy hearing them.

    Mine is definitely a sweet MIL! She lives in Idaho so I don't get to see her that often, but when I do I just love her to pieces!!
