My husband and I have been married for 4 years. We have 2 boys ages 2 years and 3 months. I love my husband, He's an amazing father, He's an outstanding Husband, and He's a hard worker. I fell in love with him instantly. So obviously the problem does not lay with my husband. It's his mom. She has hated me from day 1.She likes to have her way, especially with her son's life and since he's 26 and married and I would like her to butt out! My husband has tried to talk to her and she turned it into "this is HER talking isn't it!" She consistently talks badly about me and my 2 year old. She's told people that my husband would be better off if I left him and took our kids with me. I trust the people who've told me this with my life, so I don't believe this to be a lie. She's also said that the reason my 2 year old is a brat (which he isn't) is because he has too much of my personality and when I got pregnant with our second son she told someone close to the family that "At least now Erik will have a chance to have one NORMAL child...unless his wife ruins this one too!" I'm seriously at a loss. She came over after 2 days after I got out of the hospital with my second son, after being told not to and that if she did we wouldn't answer the door. (It was 10PM and we were going to bed) She showed up anyway and starting banging on the door, she then banged on our windows and then called my hubby and cussed him out for not answering the door. She scared my 2 year old so badly he was shaking!
We finally had to tell her that she wasn't allowed at our home or around our children until she could control herself. She nows says that Erik had no choice in the decision. (UNTRUE) This women is capable of doing horrible things and I'm honestly afraid for my childrens safety. I'm at the end of my rope. Any advice will be awesome!! I've looked into a restraining order, but since she hasn't "physically attacked" us it doesn't look like I can get one. My husband is 100% behind me and we made these decisions together and not lightly.
