Aren't MILs the best? Remember the MIL on Everybody Love Raymond? My MIL looks and acts just like her. My SIL (married to DH's brother, so it's also her MIL) couldn't watch that show.......said it was too painful. The worst part is she is a retired nurse that thinks she is a doctor. She is always saying CRAZY things like "babies born at 7 months do so much better than babies born at 8 months".........Really? I'll be sure to share that with my OB so she doesn't keep my baby in too long. We would want to keep him/her in and risk lung development........INSANE!!!

I totally ignore my MIL calls too. And when I pick up, I hear weird things too- like- oh, make sure that Samar has no milk on his mouth. Ok, I say, why? Because the cats will go into his mouth for a meal. And then they will suck his breath away.



Seriously? That is the absolute BEST one I've heard in a while!

And Joanne - Sick if you nurse while pregnant?

I would have been tempted to ask both of them where they heard such a thing.

But then again...
Maybe not.

You know what frightens me most (and I say this as someone who possesses such a model of MIL)? That one day, sadly, when my sweet little baby boy is taken away by some brazen hussy that I will morph into my worst nightmare - my MIL. LOL. I'm joking, of course, but there are a lot of crazy mamas out there!

I love my MIL, but in SMALL doses. She also says some pretty crazy stuff. But, she is my husband's mother and will continue to be a part of our lives, so I deal- even when I feel my BP rising. Some days, the only reason I don't go off on her is because I keep thinking about how I hope to be a MIL one day and need to learn what not to do.

Where do mother-in-laws come from? I know that some are great; however, mine is from a different planet. I developed PE was because I was fat. That is her explanation for everything. I never answer the phone when she calls - thank goodness for caller ID! I agree that talking to your MIL as little as possible will help eliminate stress. Hopefully she won't be at the delivery, like mine was last time. She will not be there this time - I am going to make sure of it. Good luck - try to ignore her insane comments :)

I'm a pro at screening calls from the in-laws (and not just MIL...SIL is an unmedicated bipolar). I highly recommend it. Repeat after me: "Oh, did you call? I must have been in the bathroom." ;)

Ignore. I too ignore the MIL. It is part of my Self Care Plan.
