this involves my soon-to-be mother in law. the first few months after my son was born my husbands job was slow. so we had time on our hands to visit his mother so we did and everytime we went down there she would nag and complain about his job being slow and him not having much money. it made me feel like i was in high school again. and now that he has a good job she complains that we dont copme to see here, which she has come to visit twice in 18 months. she also would always try to get my son to do things that he couldnt quite do. like at 2 or 3 months. we asked her to watch him for a few minutes(while we were visiting at her home) and i think i was outta the room for 5 minutes when i came back she was in another room without my son with her in that room and i heard muffled cries and i found him in between the thick hard couch cushions smothering. i picked him up so fast and he started gasping for air. and i swear my heart stop when i saw his helpless body stuck there with little oxygen. i had my husband say something too her because i would've been very ugly. i still havent let that one go. when he was like 4 months still unable to sit up on his own. we were at cracker barrel just the 4 of us at the large round table(???? dont know why that big but...)anyways she had bought him a christmas outfit that came with a hat and she insisted on trying it on him that very moment. my husband and i could clearly see that the hat was too small. which she ignored us when we said it was too small and for her not to put it on him. but long story short he nearly slipped off the table which gave me my 2nd heart attack in parent hood. this woman just makes me mad sometimes and it makes me question my relationship because being with her son makes her apart of my life. i hate getting into arguments about his mother but we do. can anyone relate????
