I have a good mother in law. Why does she annoy me so? Her intentions are good and her heart is good. I get so annoyed with the little things she does. In reality they are PETTY and I should be able to overlook them right?

Is it a rule of the universe that somewhere somehow a mother in law must annoy?



She wants to help with the kids(a good thing) then reorganizes something in my house( annoying) She constantly talks the most annoying baby talk to my babies oh my word this is horrifying to me!

She likes to be very involved in my husbands life and is sometimes a little over bearing. Asks me what and IF I fed my children. She does so many good things yet some little things annoy the crap out of me. can anyone relate or am I a cold hear ted evil person?

Sounds alot like she is trying to tell you how to be a mom and wife. My mother in law does the same thing its not that she is a bad person just a person who puts her nose were it doesnt belong she takes things that you appriciate like helping with the kids and makes it a bad thing by doing things you tell her not to with them or doing it a way that is not how you do it. My MIL likes to but into my arguements with my husband and I finally just told her that whne she starts doing all his laundry and cleaning up after him AND having sex with him she can butt into our arguements until then he is MY husband and she can butt out. Needless to say she was pissed but she got over it and now she is a little better about that stuff

Before my husband and I got married we were together for 5 years. He changed jobs and she called his new job to ask about his retirement plan and then called me to inform my husband what he was suppose to do with his previous retirement plan and to make sure he calls this number and so on.

We go over her house for a little birthday for my son I thought just a few family members. The whole ever loving neighborhood shows up! Yes she is excited to show off her grand kids which included 10 month old twins which she is so proud of but holy geez!

She asks the most dumb ass questions about my kids and what I feed them. After my twins were born she came over to help for a few days. I was breastfeeding so much of my time was spent with the babies and and NO I did not feel comfortable with asking MIL to come help me with my boob while a baby latched on LOL. So I asked my husband or figured it out myself.



She became upset she didn't get to take care of the babies as much as she thought and she left( she lives 200 miles away) without telling me she was going to leave I see her boyfriend drive up and she left in tears. I tried to be sympathetic and thought aren't I the one suppose to be emotional. Things got weird and I just go with the flow of things but SHE can annoy the crap out of me like no other human. Ok done venting!
