Mil strikes again. We were discussing what she will need to do when I return to work next week. I mentioned that she MAY need to feed ds dinner if dp isn't home in time but mentioned that it is no big deal as his meals are cooked and frozen in portions. She then went on to declare that she would cook him something FRESH and started dribbling on about her paleo beliefs. She then asks if he will eat a vegetable mash. I said that's fine but you need to add a rice or pasta or something to keep him full and help keep some weight on him. Her response? " oh gee, oh don't know... See I do a lot of research. I wake up at 5 in the morning so there's nothing else for me to do. I go on the Internet and research. You know (ramble mumble) protein (ramble mumble) ... the paleo diet doesn't include grains..." Blah blah blah.
Lady, my kid doesn't follow a paleo diet!!
I'm sick to death of her running me down like she is so phucking superior because she knows how to use google.
Ds is MY child, you've had your chance with raising your 3. And let me just say, I really don't think you did much of a job to be honest.
This isn't going to end well.
Mine is more to do with exSIL, exH had a falling out with one of his brothers one night, nothing major. exSIL decided to call exH and yell at him over the phone and say he was the 'rodent' of the family and he was nothing to them (he was adopted) then told me to 'shut up you stupid white b***h' when I was trying to speak reasonably and calm the situation.... exMIL told us we were not welcome in their house. And since becoming 'ex' had said she wants nothing to do with our kids, HER grandchildren!!! I basically said good riddance! Anyway new MIL is amazing!! Told her we were thinking of TTC in the nearish future, she started crying she was so happy!! And FIL & SMIL are just beautiful people as well! My dad passed away in December and they took my two boys for a few days over the funeral so I had time to grieve, Ds1 is 5 and DS2 is almost 2. They have told me countless times even though they are not DP biologically, they consider them grandchildren!
Asked MIL if she wanted to give DS (4 months)a cuddle before she left and her response was, "no, I've already given him one today"😒
I'm 33 weeks pregnant & his Mum just knew from the beginning I was having a boy (I secretly hope the ultrasound tech was wrong, I don't mind either gender though). His family keeps saying they hope the baby looks like him. Yesterday his mum said she thinks our son will be cheeky just like he was as a child & full of beans just like him too. Is this kid being judged before he's even born? I was too stunned to reply but what I would have said if I had thought of it at the time would have been something like "maybe our kid will end up ugly like me of have my quiet personality or even, God forbid the child will look like both of us and have his own darn personality!" He also mentions about his mum then calls the baby 'his' son, which I don't like. I feel that must be what she's calling the baby too.

I must say some of these posts seem like massive overreactions and the MIL comments aren't even bad!
Makes me worried about being 'that' MIL without even realising!
I am a MIL to DD1's partner, and I am also a DIL to my second husband's mother, who only has 2 sons, DH and his brother. BIL is still single. It has made me very aware of the way I treat my DD1's boyfie, and DD1. The one thing I have learned is DD1 and boyfie are a couple, and I need to respect their space, and privacy. I don't just rock up at their place without calling or texting, as it is THEIR home, not just DD1's. I guess I feel like DD1 and I have moved on to the next level so to speak, I am still her mum of course but she is an adult and an individual and I respect that. I hope this makes sense!
