    "It's because of me you have these beautiful babies " in a way that had ownership over them. (Then went on to say because she gave birth to my husband and they wouldn't be here otherwise)

    I remembered some other pearlers from MIL.

    MIL admitted a few years ago, that she told DH he shouldn't have married me and that he should have married someone of more intelligence. Her reasoning was "that you will get bored and never be able to have an intellectual conversation with Lolly!"

    She regrets saying it, and now sees how wrong she was that "intelligence isn't the be all and end all to make a relationship work"

    Driving to her daughters Hen's day, MIL was talking about how she wished her life was different. She then proceeds to say that she wished she had never married her husband (father of her 6 children) AND that she never had the final 2 children - all while sitting in front of #5's wife!

    Who are these people and why are they so ..... i can't even think of a word. Why are some MIL's so awful. Wish i had a normal one.

    On the upside, had a heart to heart with dh, told him there is no way in hell I'm going to sit back and let his mother place the blame on me for her being so absent from his life. That it's a total cop out. To my surprise he agreed. Yes it's a part of it, but it's not all me, it's her laziness, the issues with his father and also that she just doesn't think about other people. He said he actually got up her for her behaviour. She of course turned on the waterworks, as she does, and that's when she started blaming me. I just wish he'd stuck up for me then to her.
    But anyway, feeling a lot better heading into this induction process tonight without tension with dh hanging over my head.

    "I am offended that you do not take my professional opinion about DS1, over the doctors you have seen."
    Reminder... Doctors have seen DS1 more then she has in his entire life time. You can count the amount of weeks she has spent with him on one hand.

    what's her professional opinion? unless she's a pediatric specialist, I don't see why you'd take her opinion over that of the doctors you've been seeing.

    reading these stories makes me cringe! some of you have shocking mils!!!

    My MIL would tell DH every year on his birthday that if she wasn't so scared of flying and could have gotten to the city to have a abortion he wouldn't be having a birthday and he should be grateful for that and not ask for presents. And when he would fight and argue with one of his brothers she would yell at him to be nicer and if DH argue that she was playing favourites she would say "well at least I never had to put any others in a home like I did with you" (he wouldn't feed and she wasn't coping so he placed in a temp foster home until his older brother picked him up) needless to say DH has trust issues and emotionally stunted

    Omg your poor dh! I would be telling him to cut all ties with her. That is emotional abuse at its worst

    My mil is in general lovely but just incredibly self centered. She cares, but not as much as for herself.
    Example:
    My Dad's going through cancer treatment and she asked how he was going (caring) ..... when I responded that it looks like they've found another tumour and we're waiting for biopsy results on Monday her response was "oh. Did I tell you I you I have an appointment on Friday for my early pension application? "
    And that's it
    It doesn't bother me anymore as I know that's her and I expect it by now and it's not ME - she's like that for everyone.
    It's like she knows what she's supposed to do. .. but personally doesn't actually really care

    She died a few years ago but he had cut ties with her 5 years before she passed, some of his siblings turned on him due to that which is sad but he was happier once he had the negativity out of his life.
