Just wanted to ask if any of you are having issues with your MIL now that you have a baby? One of my biggest concerns about getting pregnant is that I already have an overbearing manipulative MIL and I am so worried about what it’s going to be like when we have a kid.
I have mentioned this to DH but he gets upset and makes out like I will try to keep them away from our kids which is not true but I want to be able to establish boundaries… I really don’t like spending time with them at all but I know I will have to let my baby get to know their grandparents… how do you cope?
My in-law’s live about 1.2 hour away from us so we see them regularly… almost once or every 2 weeks but I worry that i will have to see them more than this once I have a baby… i am not lying when I say thatmy MIL is my least favourite person in this world… she is a drama queen, liar, snob and extremely manipulative (although indirectly)… her daughter (my SIL) already has 2 kids so do you think she will still be on my case a lot even though her own daughter has 2 kids too??
how can I calm my fears about this? i have learnt to be stronger since I was engaged and I will never let her tell me what to do with my life but I feel like she may play games with my DH and get us to see them more…..eeek.
