- Wedding: June 2012
on probably my very first post on this site was directed towards my mother in law who i have learned, in the past 4 years is an evil woman. i also feel that this post is going to be so outrageous that some people may think i’m exaggerating or flat out lying.
if you care to read my old post, go for it http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/help-92
so this year we spent christmas out of town with my in laws.
my MIL is a passive aggressive bitch who likes to play dumb and everyone thinks she’s “too dumb to be passive aggressive”, but let me tell ya, she is smart enough.
i got unexpectedly pregnant out of wedlock (but we were engaged) and my holier than thou MIL was greatly offended by this. we have our baby and he is loved by everyone he meets. especially my family who is accepting of every bug, bee, and person on the planet. recently i feel as though he is not loved (as a grandmother would love) by my mother in law.
the argument i’m about to make may seem like it’s about money but let me assure you, it’s not. my husband’s parents are wealthy, ok? they did not pay for the rehearsal dinner or a honeymoon for us. my parents who are also wealthy, paid for all of our wedding and never blinked an eye. they even took the reigns and made it the event that i was not expecting but everything i could have dreamed of. to make the story short, they LOVE us as a couple.
we have a baby boy and his paternal grandmother was not present at his baby shower and his first birthday. she has only seend him once since he was born.
we went down to spend a whole WEEK with them where they live and stayed in their house. this woman has never gotten her ONLY grandson a gift. never a baby shower gift, never a christmas gift (in the past 2 christmases), and didn’t give him a gift for his first birthday???? is there something wrong with this woman?
as soon as we got to their house off of the plane she took out a brand new coozie that read “SLUT” on it and tore the tag off and gave it to me for my diet coke. she didn’t give anyone else a coozie….. she also went out with my SIL out to lunch and shopping multiple times and didnt tell me or invite me. then she would proceed to tell me what a nice time they had and asked if i wanted SIL’s leftovers…….
we were informed that they had baby-proofed the house before we came down to visit. my precious baby was wondering around their house and came upon a hollow black box that was plugged into the wall that looked like a speaker and was patting on it like any 12 month old would and all of a sudden she came stomping over and yelled, “don’t mess with that! that’s the expensive part of the TV!”, i’m sorry, i thought you put everything that could be potentially destructed by your grandson away so that your things wouldn’t get hurt. granted, if she had approached us in a different way i wouldn’t have been so bent out of shape, but it was rude. when we were down there she would always gawk at me when i had my hands full trying to wrangle the baby and carry a million things and never help, one time when we were in a restaurant my dad sent me a text asking me how the baby was feeling cause he was sick and she told me “oh, now youre going to get out your phone?” and then whenwe were walking out of this restaurant she actually punched me in the arm and was like “THAT was good, wasn’t it, persianprincess?!” i honestly thing she was trying to find an excuse to punch me. then she would just walk in the room where my husband and i were sleeping without knocking or anything and pretend she was looking for their beloved cats. it’s like she cant stand the thought of us sleeping in the same bed even though we are married.
i don’t really know what i’m looking for posting this on here but everyone blows me off about her…. my own husband admits he cant be himself around his parents and feels more comfortable around my family. he definitely feels like he is stuck in the middle of us and knows that he has to back me up but he doesn’t know what to do or say to her and i don’t either, other than i can go the rest of my hopefully long life without ever see her again.
