I have complained about my mother in law plenty of times on here, but I just had to get this one out.
I was having a conversation with my BFF and my sister today. My BFF has been doing some illustrations for a book that my MIL wrote and it is draining the life out of my friend because mil keeps knocking them back, and hasn't paid for anything that she has accepted yet so were talking about an exit strategy for her and then we said that MIL is a bit odd.My sister said that at my DD's birthday party last month, MIL asked her if my 11 yo neice had her period yet. I was just shocked at how intrusive and out of line this question was and my sister said "oh that wasn't the worst thing she said that day" and then she went on to tell me that MIL had comment along the lines of "I know i'm no oil painting but SPG has legs like tree trunks". I know it is nothing major but it just feels like such a slap in the face that I take her places, do shopping for her, clean stuff, etc to have her sit there at a function that I arranged and invited her to, to have her sitting there critizing my body..... (plus it struck a chord because I know I have horrid legs and I hate the way they look) Also, pot...kettle, black, actually the pot is a much blacker black than the kettle.
