You just can't make this stuff up! UPDATE AT BOTTOM

WWYD
Okay so yesterday my MIL calls me from walgreens to see if I need anything. Well I just ran out of milk so I say yes and ask her to get one of those booger sucker things for Damien's nose cause he is a little sick. Well she says " Just use a turkey baster!" I of course think she is kidding and say yeah right I WOULD NEVER DO THAT! So we hang up and I see her pass by my house to go to hers well guess what she went to get. The TURKEY BASTER! She comes in like she is ready to do it. I tell her there is No way that thing is going up his nose and she says "why not??" Like I am crazy for saying no. Well it was in two pieces you know how the head of it comes apart from the tube thing and after I say no she sits down to put this thing together! I again say what are you doing I am not using that!
It gets worse. Damien has been sick so he has not wanted to eat alot. I was feeding him and he ate about half and was done. She grabs him from me and says " Are you still hungry?' So, she gets the spoon and starts feeding him again. I tell her that he is sick and not hungry but of course if you force feed him he will take it. I tell her he is fine and she gives him another bite. By now I am so ticked so I say Joyce he is MY baby and I know when he is hungry please stop feeding him. Well she stops but still has him as I was finishing up dinner. As I set the table she goes "Oh Damien do you smell all that food" and gives him another bite! I took the food and whiped it into the garbage. Then I went upstairs to get him some pants cause the blanket I told her to keep on him she took off. Well I was up there trying to find his pants as fast as I could cause I was scared she would Baste him. I sent my daughter down to watch her. Then when I come down he has a BEER can in his hands she tells me his teeth hurt and it is closed and cold. I say I don't care he can't have it. By then I was shaking so I say I need to nurse him to get her away. I went in my living room and she follows me. As I am nusring she is kissing him. Seriously my boob was almost in her mouth and what do I do say move you crazy woman? Then everytime Damien eats he holds my hand (it's so cute) So she takes his fingers and puts them in her hand so he holds her while I am feeding him and that is OUR thing. I could not take it anymore I got up and said he had to go to sleep. Oh and I also asked her to get diapers. She knows I only use pampers and I pay her when she gets here cause she always runs for me. Well she buys the walgreens brand just to get under my skin. UUUUUUUUUUGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHH
Well she finally left when I said he had to go to sleep Thank god but would you gals have went off? She is still my MIL so I feel like I have to be civil but I swear she tries to get me to go off. I can't wait till we move away from her:) Thanks for listening if you got this far. I feel better:)

Poor you. I feel badly. I really do. A turkey baster? Seriously? My son is not a turkey. And I would have told her that.

haha Lauren, "scared of the boob" that made me laugh. My MIL never breastfed any of her kids, so she's pretty stand-offish about breastfeeding too.

I can't imagine that Tia!!!! WTH!!!!!!! Are you kidding??? Kissing while breastfeeding?!?!?!?!?!??! She's got some issues it sounds like. I'm sorry. Sad

You are a much stronger woman than me because I would have gone off on her with the beer can and then would have told her to leave the minute she started to even sit that close to me while i was nursing. And i sure the heck would have yelled at her with the kissing.

Your MIL really does give Crazy a bad name. Smile

That's a fine line to walk. I sometimes have a MIL who oversteps her boundaries and I have to be very careful to still be respectful to both her and DH. It's even harder when they live close by.

Seriously, I about lost it when you said turkey baster!!!!! That wouldn't even fit in my nose!! And eeeww.... never eating Thanksgiving again at MIL! :puke:

I'm actually proud of you for NOT going off! Sometimes restraint is hard to have but necessary to use.

wow sorry that she did all of that. totally uncalled for. i'm not so sure i would have been able to hold my composure like that. but then again i have a whole lot of other issues with my mil.

I completely feel for you.... like you needed to deal with that amongst everything else. Some people need to learn how to make it easier on others not harder.

I would have flipped ... I flipped on mil when I was trying to get the hang of nursing the first week with Kaitlyn and she refused to leave the room - she never nursed so she had nothing she could 'help' with, but the one time in the hospital she wanted to hold my boob up for Kaitlyn to get to, I told her to get out - I was tired of having my boobs on display - my own mom wouldn't have even suggested doing that! My mil is mostly great though, just the first week with Kaitlyn I wasn't in the mood to deal with anyone, even dh lol.

I hope she learns some limits soon though! Good for you for not losing your temper, but I woulda lost it.

Thanks gals for all the support. It is nice to know I am not the one who is crazy. The reason I did not go off is because then she wins. That is what she wants is for me to look like the bad guy and then she acts all nice like Oh, so sorry I was only trying to help. Today though is another story. I promise last one I will post about her then back to the scrapbooking board:)

Okay so Jasmin has to go to modeling at Kohl's today which mil aka crazy knows. So mil calls me to see what I am doing.I tell her i am getting the kids ready to take dh to work since we only have 1 truck that has 4 wheel drive (we got alot of snow) So, she says why don't you just take our truck? She tells me my fil ( who i love) is taking her to work and since the are only 5 houses down from us YACK it would be easier than driving 45 min in the snow to dh's work. I agree and thank her thinking maybe she is trying to make up for the other day. SILLY ME Smile Well right when dh is going to leave he had to stop at mil house cause he forgot his gloves. Guess who is not there. Yup fil tells dh that mil left and she took the truck! The truck that I was supposed to use. If dh would not have stopped there I would have had no way at all to take Jazz! Dh was so mad at her and trid to call her cell but she did not pick up. So he was late for work since none of us were ready. NOW IT'S ON WOMAN!! No, dh said he would handle it but I am not answering for her for a long time and if I do I am going to tell her how I feel. I mean fine screw me over but really now her own grandchild. Oh well her evil little plan did not work and we have to get going to modeling. Be back soon to see all the great pages.
On a good note my neck feels great today:)

Yikes! I'm glad I was blest with the best MIL. The worst thing she's done is buy the wrong type of underwear for dh (boxer briefs, not boxers) and then she apologized like crazy and is going to exchange them.

I know shes a nutso! She called 3x in a row last night and 2x this morning but I did not pick up. I could just see here coming over. On a better note modeling went great. Jasmin wore 4 outfits and the ad is out 2-22 which is 2 weeks after Damien's ad. I really need to scrapbook all this modeling stuff since it is such a big part of her life. Oh and guess what none of the outfits were pj's!!!!! She is always the pj girl, which is still okay. Once again thanks to all of you for the support. Smile

She is 54 but lives more like she is around 34 and she also does not look her age at all (now I am being nice to the crazy lady LOL j/k) She bartends so sometimes I think she acts like she is still at work. Oh well.

oh wow.... your MIL makes MY MIL sound not so bad lol ... My MIL is crazy too though. I hate her... well hate is a harsh word...I dislike the woman. Smile She knows now that she needs to keep her mouth shut and things to herself but she still provokes me. DH even told me that she tries to pick fights with me when she is here. If I try not to give in then I win because I'm sure she'd love to fight with me. She had the nerve to tell me "you are lucky your mother is alive, mine is dead and i wish she was here too" because I said "I wish my mom was here, she'd actually eat my baked goods". :rolleyes: This was around Christmas, our 1st xmas with her and I had made lots of homemade cookies and baked stuff and she refused every single thing...and i was missing my parents. My MIL is like 65 years old! Why the heck is she comparing herself to me? It made me realize that she compares herself to me with many other things. Like one year during the summer before I had my kids, she was really tanned and she said she was darker than me ROFL I told her that I didn't have to sit out in the sun for many many hours and days and months for my tan Wink sorry to go off..... i too have a MIL that drives me nuts!!!!!!!!! oh and you dont know yet...she is moving closer to us Sad My worst nightmare! She is 8 hours away right now. Sorry to hijack.

Sorry you have to deal with your MIL. I know how it is to have to keep your mouth shut though. Whenever MIL is here I feel like a prisoner in my own house. I'm sure you know the feeling. Smile It sucks!
