My future mil isnt quite as bad as some that i have read on here but she drives me crazy none the less! it all began the first time i met her. this was 3 years ago when i was only 19 and her first question was when am i getting grandkids! that should have been a sign! well three years later i get pregnant and Future hubby and i are thrilled. the whole pregnancy she felt the urge to tell me what to do or not do. she is legally insane and has been hospitalized for her paranoia. the whole pregnancy all she could talk about is how she would be babysitting ect. i told the future hubby over my dead body will my child be left alone with her. well of course she got all mad when we did not call her as soon as we left for the hospital when i was in labor! we waited only because the doctors werent positive they were keeping me! we didnt call my family either! my aunt practically raised me and they helped us out a lot with getting ready for my son. they threw my baby shower bought our crib, my other aunt made me scrub tops to wear during my pregancy. i was always welcome for dinner if i didnt feel like cooking ect. his family did none of that. as a matter of fact a month before my due date his mil decided she needed to move up the road from us! whatever at least she doesnt drive i guess! well at the hospital i wanted my aunts to be the first ones in the room after to see my son. his mother barged in first! keep in mind my family is who brought cameras and things to take pictures for us! visiting hours were over in like 45 min at this time so the doctors were nice enough to allow everyone in at once because of this. now my family recongnizing that i was tired after being in labor all day and knowing that they would have to leave in a few min anyway left. plus they had to work unlike his family because they are on fixed incomes. well they say goodbye and i assume yay shes leaving! nope. somehow she got my room number before i knew where i was going and there she is waiting! of course the nurses then kicked them out becuse they had to go over a ton of medical stuff. so they came back in for 5 min before they had to leave. i was so annoyed by this. i made my future hubby call them and not let them come the next day untill he got there (he had to work so he could spend an extra day at home with me).
of course now that i have him she is always trying to guilt us into visiting her. this is after she bullied her way into hubbys grandmothers first visit with her great grandson. we stopped there on the way home from the hospital. during this visit while i was holding my 2 day old son she hit me on my arm hard enough to make hubbys uncle turn around and see what happened! i flipped out at that point! i outright told my future hubby that i do not trust her and i am not leaving him alone with her. he doesnt see all that i do. im at the point where i am not even really nice anymore.
lately thou i have to be because if i am semi nice hubby speaks up for me more often. !
sorry so long but i had to vent. she drives me nuts!! i know shes not as bad as some but i can only see it getting worse! she made me give my son to her when he was fussing because he had just gotten his shots and wanted me! of course he screamed and she didnt understand why! we had to go out to eat because it was her birthday. grrr!
