Last time my MIL was over she asked me if I'd started teaching DD to read yet. Um no, she's only 18 months old! She was completely horrified and insisted I really should start, after all she said my DH could read before he was 2! Now my DH is very smart but we both think she is making this up!
also whenever my DD won't eat something she tuts and reminds me DH was apparently eating extremely hot curries by the time he was 1!

These mils can be so demeaning they were probably treated in the same manner by their mils as well!
My mil is the nastiest person and has no contact with anyone she is so bitter about life but my poor mother has to endure every saturday morning listening to the moans etc!
I get offended with the comments but the worst is when she tells my children off I get toey and have learnt to speak up for myself. So when she stays with us in the past I clean the toilet with her toothbrush ha ha she hasn't been sick yet.
But now she ain't staying with us and it will be up to me to tell my damn mil that she better save her pennies and stay in a motel I am not certainly not looking forward to breaking that news!!!!

Over the years my MIL has shared these ever so helpful gems.
When our kids are being picky with dinner: DH and BIL always ate their vegetables
When DD was a cr*ppy sleeper (first 2 years of her life): I never had to get up to my boys in the night
When our kids fight: DH and BIL never fought
Because DD is still wet overnight at 5: my boys never wet the bed
DH remembers fighting with BIL (including full fist fights on the back lawn), wetting the bed and disliking vegetables.
He must have a bad memory.

SH!T my MIL says
Some of these are crackers! My MIL was more than happy to provide unwanted breastfeeding advice even though she never breastfed a day in her life. She also said the research re prolonged tv watching for children being harmful to development was untrue as she plonked hers propped up in front of the tv from 5ish months old and they turned out ok gaaaaah She has no probs pushing her 'advice ' onto you even when you don't care to hear it and loves to b*tch and moan and gossip about everyone we know. This has led us to not want to tell her anything. Her latest one was a family member got ovarian cancer because she's 'fat' (her words (I had to shake my head visibly at that one)

Similar to a previous poster:
When my MIL got breast cancer, she started trying to pick which "chemicals" must have caused it. She went through a long list of possibilities, but her front-runner was pesticides on food because she can't afford to eat all organic. Oddly enough, she never mentioned the cigarettes that she's been smoking for 30+ years.

"Well if he can eat a corn cob he's too old to breastfeed" MIL
"When's mummy going to stop giving you boob so you can stay over at our house" FIL

MIL has never admitted that any of our children resemble me whatsoever. None of them have ever been allowed to look like me. Now we have DD, she still can't admit it (DD is the image of me as a baby)....MIL even went so far as to say DD looks like SIL, ffs.
