I'm a first time mom, my baby girl is 3-month old and she's the greatest joy of our lives. Last Sunday we visited the in-laws and my MIL was holding my baby. I swear that I heard her and FIL talking bad about me to the baby and complaining through the baby that they don't see her enough...I really heard, not only an impression.... (my husband and I visit them every Sunday, although they live almost one hour away). They were in the kitchen and I was in the dining room, the two rooms are communicating and it's easy to hear other people's converstaion. Unfortunately I wasn't able to raact, cuz I really wasn't expecting this and was hurt. My hubby (whom I love deeply) wasn't in the same room and didn't hear. When I told him he said that I misunderstood their words and it is not possible. Well, in the past, before baby was born, I heard them a few times making snarky remarks behind my back, but since there wasn't a child involved then, I didn't care too much (as long as my relation with DH was fine, I didn't care about their comments). I'm always respectful to them and they get to see the baby every Sunday, send them pics of hers and I keep them updated on her growth, etc...Now that I heard them talking bad about me to my child, I really don't feel like visiting them anymore and I feel full of anger. Not having my husband's support make things even worse. Forgive my English, I'm not a native speaker, I'm Swiss Italian.
