My mother in law says that I am more like her daughter than her own daughter. I know that sounds like it should be a good thing. Don't get me wrong, I love my mother in law and would be lost without her (My mom passed away in 2009 before my girls were born). She has been wonderful but sometimes it makes me uncomfortable when she says that I could be her daughter. It wouldn't be bad except she does it in front of her own daughter. If we are all at her house she will ask me to do something or help before her own daughter. I know it is because I do most things like she does and we life right next door so I know where everything is but I see the look on my sister in laws face when she asks me over her. I don't want to hurt her feelings but it makes me uncomfortable. Any suggestions?

Try talking to your mother in law when you are alone, let her know how she makes you feel

Every time your MIL asks you to help, just ask your SIL to come along and help too. Be the inclusive one. Also, many hands make light work!!
