I have a great one that happened today.
Way back in December of last year all the family had a get together for new years I think it was a couple of days before new years eve, was a bbq. My 3 kids were being ferals and bear in mind it's school holidays so they were getting bored and the days seemed endless, I'm sure most of you ladies can relate?
Anyway I went outside just to get a breather and alone time, my SIL came out to see what was wrong I unloaded on her and told her the kids were driving me nuts and I was a bit tired and was happy to get a few minuites alone time. We go back inside all is done and back to normal after a few tears.
Fast forward till now. My SIL is talking to my MIL without me present, my MIL asks what went on that afternoon why I disappeared. So my SIL tells her I was upset the kids were annoying me and I wanted a few minutes breather.
My MIL goes and tells my DH this morning that 'I hate my kids' apparently especially one of them more. So I hate my DD. It's ridiculous and not true. She had taken from that conversation and interpreted that I'd said I hate the kids.
My MIL has told everyone I hate my kids and can't cope, just from that conversation one hectic afternoon with my SIL.
What makes it worse is my DH went back over to my MIL's house and she got cranky at him for telling me what she said.
Very silly woman. Luckily my DH saw through it and knew I wouldn't say anything like that in the first place. I think she was sh!t stirring. And to think I thought she was actually ok as I hadn't heard anything of her for a while.
I hope that's readable and can understand it? I needed to vent it so this is great.
So now my DH thinks I hate the kids, although he knows I don't really but the rest of the family do! Great one MIL you bloody idiot!!!

zoz - that is so mean! We all have days where our kids are getting to us or we need a bit of alone time. It certainly doesn't mean you hate your kids!! And I can believe how petty she is to tell everyone. I am so pleased for you that your DH doesn't believe her.
Ooohhh i can so relate to this thread!! Although its almost 4yrs since we have seen her...and 3.5since cutting contact... she used to say lots of stupid $h!t.
- when your child is born get his ears checked. df has a hole in his ear and his other kids have it. its genetic
-she rescued df from foster care at 18
- she has paid off a judge (on her clink money)
- if we were to have taken custody of dfs youngest (at the time...before we had kids) we wouldn't get help or money from clink and no help with childcare fees (lol... i worked in childcare. i know we wouldve got ftb and ccb)
- fil has bikie connections. they once made a man who was inappropriate to his daughter dissapear in the outback
Mil is always telling dp stuff about me but with 'don't tell Anni' at the start of the story. Of course he tells me. Its things like she thought I was too loud and embarrassing at the shops, or I looked ridiculous in a certain outfit. Niggly sh!t from too far back to defend myself. Gets on my nerves so bad
'Bla blah blah bla bla. But don't tell Cicho!' Hilarious.
She wants to know everything that goes on in our marriage, our finances, even DH and I's marriage, yet she does something bat sh!t boring and tells my DH don't tell me?
Like i care! Silly old woman MIL is.
