From day 1 she has not liked me and even tried to persuade my hubby to go back to his ex. Now that we have had our first child (a little 11MO girl :) ) she keeps trying to tell me what to do and that I am doing everything wrong. The other day I asked her not to buy a specific gift for our LG and she freaked asking me "Who the hell do I think I am?!" and told me I was going to raise a child with no values (it was a religious gift). She is constantly going behind my back like trying to convince my husband to let our baby girl "cry-it-out" and that she should be smacked, when we are taking a more "attachment parenting" approaching to how we raise our daughter. She also has a drinking problem and gets very nasty and vindictive when things don't go her way- even to her own children, who's backs she often talks behind. I have tried being nice for over 3 years now but we it comes to my daughter I will not back down and this is causing strain on my marriage and putting my husband in the middle (which I hate). I do not trust this woman and I can't be false anymore. Does anyone have any suggestions on how this could possibly be resolved or how to handle the situation. I would prefer it that she would not be in our lives at all but again, I do not want to hurt my husband.
