I live with my husband and his mom and she's driving me crazy! I'm on maternity leave right now, so she's always telling me what to do. And what really drives me overboard is what she recently told me,"Well once you go back to work, I'm taking care of him how I want." WTH!! No respect

Gawd, I couldn't even live with my own mother, as much as I love her to death.

If you cant move...i suggest a good daycare or someone you know and trust to watch the child when you go back to work.
Mother in laws are a sensitive issue usually. Do what you can to have a peaceful relationship while you're living there and start looking for your own place. I love my own mother to death but I couldnt live with her now as an adult. I have even had best friends as roomates and still had disagreements in parenting or household chores. Most mother in laws think they can raise kids better than anyone. Its cute, but aggravating :)
