How do I get along with my mother in law? She lives with us, she doesn't seem to like my daughter much,(on two different road trips she joined my husband and i on she didn't want to interact or be around my daughter) she was unhappy when we told her we are expecting again, and she always has a downer attitude. I always feel uncomfortable around her and i have some level of hatred for her i think. I know she does not like my daughter and its such a hassle for her to help out around the house when she only works 1 day a week and sits in her room all day everyday other wise. When she has an issue with any thing she is very rude about saying anything. she always listens to what is going on and just watches and tries to put her two cents into conversations not concerning her,. Its like her presence annoys me. I neverhave anything to say to her i can never come up with anything to carry on a conversation cuz even if i go into it with a calm attitude i still ended up mad as hell inside just being around her.

Did she have a problem with you before your daughter was born? And Is she the type of mom who wants her son to herself?

I would have to hold a meeting to talk about this and be very nice about this,but you need to clear the air and also pick a date in which she needs to move out .....If this is a problem with your husband then you need to let him know that there are problems that need to be solved and that she does need her own place......
