Im not sure what to do. For the last 3 months I havent had any comunnication with my mother. There have been a few reasons why for it. Mostly because on Mothers Day / my wedding day she started a bunch of drama on my facebook about me marrying my husband. She doesnt like him in the slightest shape or form. But I am very much in love with him, you'd think she would respect that. A few months before Mothers day we got into another fight because she hates my husband. She is also very selfish person. All she ever thinks about is money.
She always always needs to be in the middle of everyones business and she always is stirring up trouble for me and the rest of the family. Like currently she has my whole family against me. Even family memebers whom I have never met are emailing me rude things and saying rude things to me. All because my mother cant grow up and get over who I married.
She has always been a really negative and depressing person to be around. She is practically addicted to pain pills that shes perscribed. Ive always been the so called "black sheep" in my family and have never really been close to any of them anyways. Especially not my mother we didnt get along growing up. So I dont really have a problem keeping him away.
Now my problem is that I dont want my son to be around that kind of person. Grandmother or not. I think her influence in his life would be more harmful than benificial. She talks all sorts of drama about me my husband and I know that given the chance she would do it around my son. Shes done it before and even when I said soemthing about it she told me he was to young to understand. That was when he was 7 months old he is 18 months now. So am I in the wrong for doing this or should I have her around anyway?
