My son is 2 months old, and I understand that my mother-in-law wants to see her grandson, but I cannot stand her!!! And believe me I know that's horrible, but there is something about that woman that drives me insane!!! And she's over like every day!!! Does anyone have any advice on how to tolerate an overbearing, overly annoying, insufferable mother-in-law???

I just had the same problem and moved in with my mother in law. Everything she said to me got under my skin. I know she meant well but I couldn't stand the comments being made about my parenting. Honestly you need to talk to her. Try to avoid it becoming petty and just address what's bothering you. I did and things got worse but then we both cooled off and I know realize I was being a momzilla. She was just trying to help in her own way.

Maybe you could talk to your husband about it and see if there is a way you could work out giving her time with your son at her house. That way you wouldn't have deal with someone butting in and you could also get some time to yourself to relax or do something fun, maybe even have some alone time with your husband. In laws can be difficult to deal with sometimes, but I have found that it is usually possible to come to some sort of understanding and work something out if things can be talked through in a calm manner.
