Everything I vent about she had it worse! Funnily enough she likes to dish out sleeping and settling advice :/

My mil is normally pretty good. She is a childcare worker though so thinks she knows everything about everything!
When I was struggling with ds and his sleep, I told her I was going to sleep school with him. She told me not to bother and "just to put him in the lounge room to cry for 12 hours" because that is how she fixed dh!

MIL today visiting us and 2 day old DS in hospital:
"Do you want me to take him out for a while so you two can get some sleep?"
Ummmm wtf? So many things wrong with this I don't know where to begin- a) you're not allowed to take him off the ward b) where would you take him anyway c) you have not once offered to look after DD in 2.5 years and so on..

It's my mother rather than mil that pees me off the most. Background: we moved over to oz from UK just over 3 years ago. DD was born sept 2013 and we visited the UK that xmas so that all the relatives could meet her (she is the first grandchild). Since then hubby's parents have visited oz and always FaceTime with DD every weekend. My mother has decided she is coming to visit next year so I told her she would have to start making an effort to FaceTime us so that DD could get to know and recognise her a bit more. I set a specific time that worked for both of us and this week would be the 2nd time she has seen her ONLY grandchild since xmas 2013. I tried calling her and this was the response..
Daryl is my uncle and regency is her work. Basically she didn't bother telling me she was out and trying to rearrange. When I try to rearrange it turns out that watching a movie AT HOME is more important that seeing her grandchild.

At the moment DS (3 months) is being a real mummy's boy - he watches me constantly and if I leave him somewhere or with someone he will follow me with his eyes. MIL came over the other day and I gave him to her for a hold. He wouldn't look at mil and instead was trying to find me in the room. MIL got really annoyed about it "mummy's gone! Stop trying to find her and look at me! Give me smiles! Hey!! Hey! You don't always need mummy!" 😳😳 wasn't too happy with that one. She recieved 0 smiles from DS (teehee!).

Not what MIL said but what she just did...
My MIL this morning washed some stuff from our washing basket in my room (without asking)... I had a heap of embarrassing and gross things in there (dressed up for DH a couple of nights ago and yesterday unexpectedly got AF) 😱
Washed them in her cheap soap flakes and made them super stiff and smelling like an old Nanna...
I can't even look her in the eyes I'm so mortified

My MIL would visit then want to wash my dishes etc then complain that I needed her help!
I never asked her to do anything. She took it upon herself and then had the hide to snip behind my back about how much I needed her!
Eff off lady. She hasn't set foot in my home since Feb last year. And it's been lovely
