- Wedding: July 2018
My FSIL drives me insane!! Every single thing in her life always comes back to her kids, she’s one of those women who can’t even hold a normal conversation without talking about her kids. I’m so sick of hearing about every single detail of her kids lives, including bathroom details.
She never asks anything about the wedding, all she ever says is “I can’t wait for people to see the kids dressed up”, “I’m so glad you’re having a wedding close by so the kids can come”, “I hope the food at the reception is ok for the kids”, “omg people are going to love watching the kids walk down the aisle”, “have you shown everyone pics of the flower girl dress”, it goes on and on. They live in a different city and a few weeks ago we met up with them in the mountains, my mom and sister were there too and my mom said something about being excited about the wedding and FSIL said “oh I know, the kids are going to be so cute”
When I texted her a pic of my engagement ring she said “Nice. We’re just taking the kids to a movie, I’ll send you a pic of their cute outfits”
It’s ALWAYS about the kids! She just sent me a text reminding us to send a gift for one of the kids birthday next week and then told me all about their plans for it. It’s mine on Monday, thanks for asking about my plans.
On the rare occasion that she’s not talking about the kids, she’s talking about how my fiance and I MUST have kids right away so that her kids have cousins, and you know, our lives won’t be complete without kids. Oh, and we absolutely cannot have just one, we have to have two just like her. And I hope I don’t enjoy my makeup, nice clothes, fancy cars etc. because once we have those two kids all of that is out of the window.
She annoys me so much that I don’t even respond to her texts anymore. She texts me at least 10 times per day either pictures or videos of the kids doing something (no, I don’t need to see a video of your 3 year old pooping in her diaper or texts about things the kids just did/said. She never asks how we are or what we are up to, it’s just always kid stuff.
Thanks for letting me rant! Does anyone else have a family member, friend, coworker who is like this too?
