DEFINITELY MONSTER-in-Law! YIKES!
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!
My mil is one of the sweetest, nicest, most loving women on earth. And also, very, very ditzy and airheaded. I just can't take it half the time. We are so different in everyway that it is so hard for me to have any patience with her telling me the same story for the millionth time. She loves my kids, and they adore her, so that is awesome. I know she would do anything for us and I almost feel bad for not being able to handle her. Until she comes and stays with us My in laws live a lovely 12 hour drive away so we dont see them too often, but when we do I can handle about a day of her non stop talking and asking dumb questions just to try and make conversation. Seriously, she will ask questions she already knows the answers to JUST to be talking. My dh is one of 7 children so she definitely does believe she knows everything there is to know about raising children and is always talking about her pregnancys as if mine should be just the same. I am very grateful to not have gotten a true monster in law who does thing on purpouse to make me angry, but sometimes this is worse, cause she gets her feelings hurt so easily I can't even let her know I could recite the story she is telling word for word. It's frustrating, but it could be much worse I suppose
