My MIL annoys the sh1t put of me. She's a little pretentious and judgmental, but she's always been nice to me.
She lives in Europe so I don't have to see her very often. She wasn't the greatest mother to her kids, but not the worst, either, but they survived.
Anyway, I got this text message earlier saying "glad you are the mother of my grandchildren when I hear about the murder of the 5 year old in Wales!"
I replied, "sounds awful, haven't heard anything about it here. Did the mother kill her child?"
She then replied, "a girl was abducted outside her door by a local man and murdered. I can't help but think of *insert dd's name here* and what a good mother you are and very lucky for that"
I wrote back, "how terrible for the mother. I'm sure she is a good mother?!"
anyway, as I said my mil sh1ts me sometimes, implying this mother is not a good mother because her daughter was kidnapped.
