Ugh she sounds like one of the moms who doesn’t want to let go of her “baby”. As tho as soon as either she or her son isn’t making the decisions, the other person becomes a target. It doesn’t sound like you were demanding at all but she clearly perceived it that way.

I would just try and be the bigger person,be mature and ignore it. If she wants to give you the cold shoulder, fine. Don’t let her see it get to you. I would’ve continued conversation with the BIL and Nephew and not let her see that she had an impact on my mood.

I’m sorry you had a horrible day. I totally feel you. I am a fussy eater and also Hate Chinese… My in laws have ordered it a few times knowing I hate it… but I usually just end up eating a few chicken balls or plain rice and while disappointed,don’t let it be a big deal. I realize it probably would’ve been fine for you too if not for the PMS… PMS is one helluva bitch!!!

@alyssaC:  That’s awful! Honestly, we should get her and my FMIL together for a crazy-fest. I agree with PP saying she can’t let go of her baby. I personally take the slightly passive aggressive route and enjoy regularly proving her wrong with the things she says. She calls you a bitch? Kill her with kindness. You don’t sound like you were at all being demanding, and she’s the one who changed plans. Don’t let her bring you down!

Yea if my dh’s family ordered Chinese , I’d be crying and doing the McDonald’s run too.  Eating food you don’t like when starving just isn’t fun!  Sorry but screw her
