I'd have to say my biggest issue with MIL is the fact I can't trust her to use common sense when it comes to my toddlers safety. She has one of those little, yappy pocket dogs and it's constatly snapping at DD1. Both XDP and I have told her over and over to keep the dog away from her but she'll do it for X amount of time until she thinks we've forgotten or something and then starts letting him around her again. It's gotten to the point where I refuse to let her take DD1 because she can't be trusted to stick to her word.
This has really gotten to me over the past week as I've been in hospital with DD2 and my family have been caring for DS and DD1 while I've been gone. MIL has offered to take her several times and I've ignored her, I have enough to worry about right now without being scared DD1 would come home with a dog bite on her

Mines only said crap things to me, but top 3 are:
When I was 5 months pregnant begged me, literally begged me, to put a jumper on as I was just showing and she had guests drop in and they were still trying to hide my pregnancy! I refused. So she introduced me as my partners wife we stormed out. She later then tried to make it like her friends had the issue not her. FFS.
When jasper was a year old she told me she had accepted that I was an Aussie and that most people wouldn't. Mm-Kay. 1) it took you 3 years and i gave you a freaking grand child a year ago to accept me?!? And 2) what country do you think your in? You SON and GRANDSON are BOTH Australian born & raised. Bloody racist.
And finally recently calling me to ask if jasper was missing booby. Huh what? No he's still breast fed. 'oh no no no no good! It's no good for the baby!' and on and on about how it was dangerous for the baby. I said - very tightly - 'do you think I would put my own baby in danger?' 'oh no you don't understand! My English no good, you don't understand what I'm saying' i told her NEVER to mention breast feeding to me ever again, told her she's been telling me to wean since he was 4 WEEKS old and she was NEVER to bring it up again, how's sam? (her husband) great that's awesome, bye - hung up.

I don't let her bother me...she really isn't worth the space she occupies on this earth
The only thing she and DHs father (they are not *my* anything!) have done that actually hurt and continues to annoy me is sending a text message to DH on the morning of our wedding saying something along the lines of "congratulations on ruining your life with that s**t"
Not that it hurt me directly.. I was upset for DH.. I know it hurt him and I can't stand seeing him deliberately hurt because he is SO sensitive. They did it knowing he would be crushed, and knowing that he would be extremely nervous because he hates being the center of attention and is pathologically shy.
Awful, awful, awful! I can't fathom how anyone would deliberately hurt their child. Although it doesn't suprise me, they have always set out to hurt him as much as possible when he doesn't do as he is told.
Oh well! I have nothing at all to do with them, and they will miss out on ever seeing their beautiful grandchild

Telling me it's my fault my husband had pnd
Telling me to ween from 3 months because he doesn't need it
Sending me a copy of my new seating plan for my wedding even though I had previously asked her input and she said its great
And lastly, when her husband molested me, telling me I was just being too sensitive because I was molested and raped as a child
God love her

Too many to list, but ones that stick in my mind;
Cutting my child's hair- it looked like she used the whipper snipper and took 5 months to grow out to where it could be fixed.
Taking it upon herself to grab my first childs face and my boob and jam them together when I was first learning to breastfeed (she bottlefed by the way, is not a midwife and is not allowed to touch me *shudder*).
Damaged a lot of things in my kitchen and then replaced them with Reject shop stuff because "it is just as good and does the job".
Rings dh constantly because she has treated him as her partner since he was 10yo
Aaah, too many more to mention and I am starting to really get angry thinking about her.

My MIL was pretty good. We had different ideas with things but nothing too major. She passed away not long XH and I separated and I an glad in a way because it would hurt her to see what her son has become.
My Mum's MIL (my Nanna) was terrible to Mum though. One story that sticks in my mind is the time that Mun was out the back hanging clothes on the line and Nanna let herself in the front door, took my brother out of the cot and took him to her house without telling Mum!!!

She got my daughter's name tattooed on her without our permission and before we'd had a chance to do it ourselves.
And "you don't want to watch soccer Lila, that's a po*fter sport!"
When she has two lesbian godparents, it is a FILTHY word and what the heck's wrong with soccer?
