    Every time I read this thread, I'm blown away that MILs can be so heartless. I mean, how is it ever okay to say something like this? It's like it came from Emotional Blackmail 101!

    oh Hun I'm sorry. I can't speak for your circumstances, nor that if anyone else. certainly did not intend my story and sentiments to be a generalization and be applied to everyone.

    i don't think it's awful, I think the way in which BIL's wife goes about things is awful. i was criticizing the person, not the action.

    apologies if it came across the wrong way x

    I thought that was so insensitive and rude! Especially because between her and FIL we have been by their side for 5 surgeries the past 6 or so years, and then she goes and says that no one needs to be with MY dad. 😥
    maybe she was trying to allay your fears and make you feel as though he's in good hands at the hospital? rude and insensitive way to put it, I agree.

    Thanks but I think it was more a case of her not wanting to look after our 2 young boys

    FIL talking about your vagina? Eewww creepy!

    My FIL thought it appropriate to lecture me about not trying hard enough to breastfeed (my ds had a tongue tie, couldn't latch and was starving), and then proceeded to tell my about how my MIL breastfed her boys for over a year blah blah blah and i was failing my son. Wish I'd been as outspoken then as i am now, cos he would have got a huge F U! My MIL constantly ignores me when it comes to my son, it makes me furious. She acts like he's her child. Having #2 in a week and a half. Should be interesting. I have come out of my shell A LOT since our first son was born. Not afraid to speak up this time 😈

    When DH called to announce our second baby was on the way & due mid December, MIL complained that we ruined Christmas with our timing because we wouldn't be able to travel interstate to visit them. She then proceeded to ring me to 'congratulate' me by saying the same thing to me. All the while knowing we had endured 5 miscarriages prior to that. Once again we find ourselves due in early January after telling them we would be there for Christmas this year and she straight up said the same thing about our poor timing and ruining Christmas. So predictable and such a cow.
