My (now) ex-MIL has been causing huge problems in my co-parenting relationship and pretends like it is all an accident. She constantly meddled in the fragile relationship her son and I had, until there was no chance for us to stay together. She would lie to him about things I asked her to do regarding our son and ignore it blatantly saying, "Well, it was just so cute" or "I thought once wouldn't hurt." She even picked my son up from daycare when my ex was supposed to (and hid it from me) even though I had told her on several occasions through text, phone, and in-person that it was not ok. She told my ex that I had never had those conversations with her. While I was pregnant she threw herself a grandmothers baby shower and didnt invite me and went as far as looking up custody rights on my child because I refused to allow my ex (then boyfriend) to see our child if he was still suffering drug addiction and would have rage fits. She threatened me with court and lied to my ex about saying it, then tried to convince me I was lying to him!!! She constantly tells my ex how she doesn't like how I treat her or him and that I am "hateful" and "mean" to her. She even told my ex he wasn't to talk to me about anything anymore because I was "unreasonable." When I finally told her her opinions were unwelcome and she didn't have any right to tell my ex how to interact in our relationship she stopped speaking to me and refuses to be near me at all, but still expects to have complete control over my child. I literally despise her and believe she has an almost oedipus complex about her son. She has to be mentally ill or else she is the most selfish person on the planet. She ruined any shot at civility with my ex and has tried to push me out of my own son's life and assume the role of mother. Every time I set any type of boundary about her being a grandmother and not a mother, she goes to my ex and cries telling him how mean/hateful I am to her. He has completely been manipulated by her and always takes her side. Help anyone?
