    Did for a year when the in-laws were going through a messy divorce. Biggest mistake of our lives and never again.

    I did for nearly 2 years.... Then I got preg and wanted to murder her! I love her but the 'you should bf longer' 'don't spend that much' gets to me too easily!!!

    My MIL stayed with us (unannounced) a few years ago. She turned up with her then 6 year old, and stayed for about 3 weeks.

    No NO way could I do it again, unless she had no other option.

    In your situation OP no I wouldn't. It's just not feasible. You're not being mean or selfish.

    I have said to df I would and probably will live with MIL. I love her to bits. She's taken over the role of mother to me

    Df always said to her when she gets old he will help her and I'm more than happy to do so. It's only because of the relationship between MIL and I though, if she was a different person it'd be a no.

    We did for awhile before DD was born. Wasn't the most pleasant experience. Don't think we could again now though!

    We actually moved out of the state to get away from the crazy woman and all of her needy/abusive/guilting/controlling behaviors.

    we lived in the same town and it was the single most painful and horrible time of my life.

    We now have NO contact and I couldn't be happier!

    We are about to- they have a granny flat we are moving into for 6 months so we can save the rest if our house deposit and buy a house next year.

    I love them very much and don't forsee any issues, maybe a few small annoyances but nothing major.

    MIL has already says she wants to look after our little one so we can go on 'date nights', she wants to take him to kindy etc. They already spend a lot of time with him and the only annoying thing is she is probably a bit more of a 'helicopter parent' than me, however that can also be a good thing when you are leaving your child with someone else.

    I think it's so nice if them to offer this to us, it would of taken us years to save the amount we will save in 6 months there rent free.

    Only thing that's a drag is there's no bathroom in the granny flat so will use the second bathroom in the house. Not a huge deal apart from midnight loo trips!!
