I live with my mil and i cant stand it. she wakes up early and uses the microwave the nursery is down stairs below the kitchen so it wakes up my son almost everyday. she is not the cleanest person and leaves stuff out that my son can get to all the time plus i consider her a hoarder with junk and also food. my husband is in the process of remodeling a house for her right across the street but at least its not the same house. i just keep praying that house will be done soon. everytime we set rules for our son on what we want and how people can help with it she will listen for a few days but then does whatever she wants as if she doesnt have to listen to what are wants are for our son. it is very difficult living with in laws.

I do know what its like..my husband and I had to move in with his mother who is elderly just before my son was born, my son is going to be 3 in a few weeks and I am still stuck here..sadly our car died a few months ago and it was fully paid off. Now she holds this above us that we don't have a car and have to use hers. She tries to control how I clean and take care of my son. and not to mention the fact she feels the need to tell me how to be a good wife... I am fed up and can't deal with it anymore..saving up for an apartment seems to be taking forever. soon I might just take my son and leave and find some low income housing somehow, but if it doesn't change soon the whole thing will probably end up in divorce..hate to say it.. I love my husband..but I have way to much hate for his mother, and its just not fair to my son or my husband or myself.. any advice

I live with my inlaws. I don't have any problems against them but the only thing I hate is that everyday they are up at 5am & start making noise & wake everybody up especially my 9 month old daughter. We live downstairs & we hear everything that goes up stairs.

For example, last Thanksgiving my mother-in-law woke up around 4:30am & started to polish the wood floor. She also likes to slam the door when she goes out. They also have big heavy foot stumps that the hold floor squeaks.

Yes thats understandable! its hard to make ends meat sometimes!! my MIL is just crazy. she yells at me all the time when noone is around,and has her halo on when her husband is around.she tries to tell me how to mother my son.and thinks i have to do everything she did as a mother.and when i disagree shit hits the fan. its gotten so bad my fiance told me not to answer the phone or door if its her. he has delt with her longer than i have so he knows how nuts she is.lol
