It's nothing compared to some of these whoppers but this morning MIL just made me want to smack her upside the head. I was telling her that I really didn't want to go to a baby shower this long weekend as I'll only know the mum to be and maybe one other person. I was telling her this is due to my anxiety. She told me I simply need to face my fears and then I can have a nice time socializing.
Anyone who has a clue about anxiety knows this is just a pi$$ take and insult.
Seems like a bit of a so-what kind of thing but after years of these kinds of comments, I'm just about done trying with this woman. She is so overbearing and condescending.
I'm sick to death of my mil turning on the tears to manipulate dh. I used to just back down but not anymore. I don't care anymore. I will no longer be a doormat. If dh doesn't like it, he can leave and go live with his "perfect" mummy. I told him that too.
We are leaving soon to go on an overseas holiday where shellfish may be present in food cooked for us and since dp has a very mild allergy, my brother has a mild allergy and my aunty is anaphylactic we have always held off giving the girls shellfish until they are old enough to be able to tell us if they are having an kind of reaction. Anyway dp and I were discussing trying dd2 with shellfish before we leave so we knew if we had anything to worry about or had to be really careful in case she was allergic. Dp was worried if it might take a couple tries of shellfish for an allergy to reveal itself when mil pipes up she already let dd2 try shrimp paste in some cooking early in the year without us knowing... Unimpressed!
Wow a lot of these MIL sound totally narcissistic....
