    Us poor ladies having to deal with these rotten MILs lucky ours is in nz but are constantly nagged by my mother who is currently visiting from nz that we as a family must come back to reside in nz, but my answer is I cannot deal with his mother she is so manipulative but butter wouldn't melt in her mouth. Always putting me down with barbed comments and the worst is she is plain nasty with our children (how can mil sleep at nite knowing she hates her lovely grandchildren)and enjoys reprimanding them but of course dh forgets her behaviour or is ready to forgive. I am just blessed it costs alot of money to visit nz with three children and pay for up to date passports so we can avoid them all.

    On spending my first day with her, being 3 months pregnant and knowing she wasn't a huge fan of mine...
    "No offence, but he's never been the sort to bring home lost puppies"

    😧How rude! She does know saying "no offence" doesn't stop something being offensive right?

    My latest is a vent on mil showing clear favoritism between my two kids.
    She took dd shopping and bought her heaps of things and ds got nothing.
    Its ds's birthday tomorrow and she has gotten him a winter sleeping bag. But for dd's birthday bought her clothes and a gold bangle.
    Always drops everything to babysit dd but ds will hardly ever do it.
    I hate people showing favoritism over kids treat them equally!!!

    I wouldn't let her see either or then until the favouritisim stopped.

    My ILs are the same but they favour SILs kids. We rarely see them because of it. I feel really sad for my kids to be stuck with them duds!

    She's not the sharpest tool 😉 it hurt at the time (a hell of a lot I might add!) but now I remind myself that I wasn't lost, and we chose each other, and he loves me! She only pushed DH away from her unfortunately.

    My mil was dead set against our marriage fearing it might end in a divorce because "apparently divorces runs in her family".

    My mil does this too. It's horrible isn't it?
    Poor ds stood there watching while dd got gifts for no reason AGAIN. Right now ds is a bit young to fully understand but it won't be long. Mil tells me my dd is her Angel. I feel like saying she's mine actually, and we have a son too

    My siblings still hate me presently for being the "favourite one".
    They ostracised and criticised me whenever we catch up.
    So I hope you can prevent this from happening.

    Anyways

    It's not something MIL said it's something she did.

    For Xmas our kids got snowman meringues from the bakery. SIL's kids got a swing set!
