    Wow.

    reading these stories makes me cringe! some of you have shocking mils!!!
    She works in the disability field for severe cases. DS1 has been suspected of autism since 18ms and she has told me it's because I don't talk to him enough.
    Specialists were not willing to diagnose him straight aware because of delay. He was diagnosed officially at 4.

    Since then she has been telling us he is fine...

    MIL on her way over to meet bub for first time, and see us for first time in 3 months. Takes it upon herself to invite her constantly sick mother also.
    Should be sufficiently awkward as we have not seen her since the infamous "i don't visit because your wife makes me feel unwelcome/unwanted" phone call. How am i supposed to play nice? All i want to do is tell her to leave and never come back. I'm not surprised that she said that about me, she is one of those people who does not take blame for anything, in her eyes she is the perfect mother etc. I'm annoyed that dh is making me play nice. I would never put him inthat position. Grr.
    Both boys are currently sleeping. The woman (and her equally rude mother) has no clue what an inside voice is. Going to be a long night with 2 very disrupted kids tonight.
    God i hate that woman.

    Mine has just cancelled xmas this year at her place. We know it is because bil won't be there. We have been planning this for 12 months. She is trying to blame it on me being 30 weeks pregnant. Think it's a bit of retaliation to me emailing her last week and outlining our new house rules.

    your partner really ought to tell her she can't play both sides. if she's behaved so unpleasantly and unwelcomingly towards you in the past, why is she now clamouring for a visit? I'd tell her myself to leave her sick mother for another visit too (by sick I assume you mean something contagious and not like cancer or something).

    she's behaved like a total b.tch to you yet now she wants to swan in and visit? doesn't work that way!

    oh and tell her to please keep their voices down as your kids are sleeping. your house, your rules. not hard to see why you hate her!!

    sorry meant to quote not thank.

    I'm sorry she's been saying such awful things to you. she's not a specialist so unlikely she's really coming from an educated or informed place. so rude when people just shove their unwanted opinions down your throat and especially when it's about your own child!!

    Thanks ladies. I was barely acknowledged as per usual. Don't care didn't want to make small talk. She went outside to smoke and didn't bother even closing the door. I closed the door quite forcefully and said close the door if you're going to smoke. Her mother heard me and gave me a filthy look. I'm sure they had a ***** when they left. I was upstairs feeding bub so didn't have to play nice.
    I feel like not paying attention to them woukd frustrate them more, much like with a bully.
    Dh hasn't said anything to me about it .... yet!

    That's so disrespectful. I hope your DH sets her straight. If she can't be courteous to you in your own house, she needs to grow up. I would be super pi$$ed about the smoking. There's no excuse these days. Everyone knows how bad it is for you and she's prepared to let a tiny baby be exposed to it? Yuck.
