I have a 3 month old and I let her stay at my mothers house from time to time and I am very comfortable with it because she is my mother.But my mother in law will not leave us alone constantly wanting my little girl to come stay with her.I feel so uncomfortable leaving her over there.I do have my differences with her and we do not get along most of the time but when she hears that my daughter has stayed at my mothers she gets so mad and is so rude to me and my husband bothShe also has called alot of people in my husbands family crying telling them I am keeping our daughter away from her and how bad of a person I am.My husband tells me I am just looking for something to fuss about but I feel like I am in the right here.Am I in the wrong??
OKAY LADIES HERE ARE THE REASONS I DONT LIKE MY MOTHER IN LAW...
Some of you may think its stupid bu I have several and here are some of them...1.When I got married I special ordered a mansion to get married in put down a 500 deposit and when she found out she cried called all the family saying its not right she wanted me to get married at her church and if i got married in that mansion she was not going to pay for the rehersal dinner.Okay well fine I had to cancel my reservations and didnt get my 500.00 back.2nd I HATE FERNS LOL she knows that very well so I decorated this church the night before my wedding and it was just like I wanted it well the next day trhey open the doors for me to walk down the aisle and guess what there are 20 ferns all over the platform where I said I do..I was soo upset I dont even like looking at my wedding pics.3rd When I was in the hospital having Madilyn she made me a bow for the door well it had a porcelin doll on it I am terrified of porcelin dolls and she knows that.4th I asked her please dont put a bow on my mailbox when I had Madilyn because I didnt want to advertise I had a baby (Okay I admit I watch too many life time movies!!)But hey anything can happen right so I get home from the hospital and theres a HUGE pink bow on the mailbox.5th My mama kept her for us to get our tire changed when she was 3 days old because we were stranded on the side of the road she got mad because we didnt call her to come get the baby my mother was down the road and she thinks she is supposed to get her every weekend and she does not want her at my mamas and everyone will say my mama is a GREAT person!Okay Im tired of typing theres many more reasons though!
THE REASON I DONT TRUST MY MOTHER IN LAW.....
When my daughter was 2 weeks old we went to my husbands aunts well his grandmotehr lives across the street from hus aunt.I went outside with his cousin I came back in and my child was gone I asked my husband where she was and he said his mother (my MIL) came up and took her across the street to his grandmothers.I went over there and my child was screaming she would NOT give her to me jjust kept insisting that she weas okay (SHES A KNOW IT ALL)..I finally got her and she stopped crying later that night I was bathing her and she had a HUGE knot (the size of a golf ball) on the back of her head.I touched it and she screamed.I took her to the er and they said someone dropped her on her head.She was only out of my sight for 5 minutes
