My Monster In Law

So I had my mother in law over for the past while, a lot of people think its natural to dislike your mother in law but this it a totally different “dislike”. My husband and my parents get along great, and I understand that my parents live here (where as his mother does not) and that my parents are also well off so they can help us if we’re ever in a financial pickle, in need of a house/car repair (my dad is a bit of a handyman but also works at a dealership in parts.) They’re also around for babysitting and get along with our son absolutely swimmingly, there’s that total grandparent and grandchild bond of magic.

Then there’s my mother in law whom lives 4 hours away (thank my lucky stars) whom my husband can only stomach having down once a year (but after this visit he said never again.) She took refuge on the couch for her entire visit when she wasn’t laying on the floor in her bed that we set up for her, she yelled and complained about the dog, fought with my husband, and barely spent any time playing with her grandchild. I personally don’t think my son likes her because there were plenty of times he would run crying to me wanting absolutely NOTHING to do with her. Even when we went out to the park to get out of the house she declined to move and spent the time on the couch instead of watching her grandson feed ducks and play at the park. Now you might be thinking this is a 400lb woman whom simply cannot walk, not so, this is a fairly able bodied woman whom is roughly 140lbs, if she can spend 2 hours a day standing at the mirror curling her hair I don’t see why she couldn’t make a 4 minute trek down to the park. Yes, it was a very hellish time which I devoted to my son whose whole schedule had gone to hell, cleaning up dog pee and poo because his entire life was flipped upside down as a mad woman yelled at him and pushed him away, and tried to no end to console my husband whom was ready to start digging a deep hole in the yard.

So now its times to pick up the pieces (and the house) and get back into a normal non aggravated schedule and find some peace of mind.

About vanitymom

I'm here to talk about not only the joys of motherhood but also the (not so much joys) of living in a high society world that you're judged upon your looks... where I live you need to be a 7 to gain beach access, an 8 to walk around half naked in the summertime and atleast a 9 to hold your head up high. I'm Vanity Mom. I will be talking about things such as parenting (of course) beauty tips for moms, exercise, and eating healthy... all while doing this with a kid biting the hell out of your leg because he's teething.

    OMG your MIL sounds like mine except for my hubby won’t even allow her into our house! Bless your heart, you have more patience than I.

  2. ouch! what a time! well … I figure if we are honest with ourselves – some of us really don’t enjoy being parents – it’s just not our thing. I think the same is true for some grandparents – and of course it’s not good for the kids – but it’s just the honest truth… can’t say that out loud tho.
