    Yep. No partner would ever stop me seeing my kids. Hubby hated dd1 last bf. We still visited and was happy for them to visit us.

    Definitely about her not you.

    I am pretty tired of being the issue, when in actual fact there really isn't much I can do about the issues she has. The arguments she is having now is more with DH, but we will blame me anyway. He has been putting her in her place for the past year, and she has been hating it.

    I knew there would be some horror stories here after Christmas! Ugh, I feel so bad for all of you dealing with this sort of crap. My ex MIL was pretty awful, but my MIL is great.

    I think it's just that we are a perfect fit personality wise - DH & I like being alone and can't stand people trying to visit or hassle us to visit all the time and my MIL probably calls about once every 3 months. We never call them unless we are organizing something and we visit each other about 4 or 5 times a year. They're happy with that, we're happy with that, it works great! She is ultra lovely to me at all times, tells me how much she loves me every time we speak. I know after we have children there'll probably be more of an effort on both sides to see each other more though.

    So I guess our personalities just work, when some people are upset their in laws don't speak to them for months, then just call out of the blue asking if they can see them, I think "that's what I like best about my in laws!" 😄

    Upon learning we're likely starting fertility treatment soon:
    MIL "Oh! Well if you have twins again, I'll quit my job and come over everyday to help."
    Me *awkward smile*

    You need to move - different state, possibly different country.

    Sure MIL quit your job which is your source of income to 'help out'. Since it is voluntary you will not get paid so life may not be so comfy.

    Also, hell no.

    See, I actually think that's kind of sweet. It'd probably drive you round the bend if it was every day, but the fact she's offering help seems to me like a positive thing. (Said as someone who lives a long way from any family, and who'd love some occasional help!)

    Yeah it is sweet, I totally agree. But MIL does not have a great track record with making decisions about my children's well being - the last time she looked after our boys for us she took them in the car "just around the corner" with no car seats (they're 4)...
