“I’m going to be in the delivery room with you right?”

Okay, I’m not married to FI yet, not yet pregnant and NO!

DH’s older brother is baptised, but not DH because MIL says “we never got around to it”.

DH asked MIL if she was planning on coming up to visit after the baby is born, seeing as how he is her only child and so this will be her first and only grandchild. She responds “oh, I don’t know. I guess I will have to eventually.”

Then a couple days later she’s lamenting to DH that she “feels excluded” from her soon-to-be grandbaby’s life and fears that she will not be welcomed to spend as much time with her as her other grandparents.

Well then maybe come visit the kid, b**** …

MIL invited step MIL’s (SMIL) ex husband to the wedding. I was in charge of the guest list and honestly had no idea who he was. We allowed our parents to extend a few invitations to their friends (even if we didn’t know them) as they paid for a majority of the wedding. We received a very angry phone call from FIL about it and DH confronted MIL about it. Turns out she did it because “she had to put up with SMIL being at our wedding so she didn’t understand why SMIL shouldn’t be as uncomfortable as MIL apparently was going to be.” MIL also hasn’t spoken to this guy in over five years.

@Kandiss16:  (approximately 8 years before getting engaged)… “It’s gonna be great for you to convert to Catholicism before the wedding!”

SAY WHAT?!

MIL called every cake vendor in Georgia (From VA–Destination wedding) Asking if they were doing the wedding cake for xyz.. When she finally found my cake lady she preceded to try and change the order of the cake. Also told the cake lady she paid for everything–which isn’t true.. we did. Then at my wedding she walked around from table to table asking how everyone enjoyed the wedding she paid for. I would LOVE to have some of that money she claims she spent… We even paid for her travel and hotel room. BLAH!

@Kandiss16:  Ok, great, thanks for including me 🙂

So, like I’m sure some of you have noticed based on my multitude of “i’m-going-to-fucking-choke-her-out” posts, my mother is a *bit* of a handful. My FI has a very sweet and kind mother, and I feel kind of bad he got saddled with mine. I think list format would probably be the best way to detail her MIL insanity:

1. The *first time* she met FI, we had only been dating a couple of months. Her first questions to him were “so…how nervous were you to meet me?” (she did not like his answer), followed by “when are you having children?”/”when you have children, you’ll understand”, etc. 3ish years in, she is fully aware we are not having kids, yet continues to hound me about it.

2. We have been engaged barely two weeks, and she is unaware that I bought my dress *months* ago. She has not dropped *telling* me what dress I will be wearing: a green, tropical print pageant gown she bought me *4 years and 20lbs ago*. When I explained to her that I will not be wearing it, she said she wanted to talk to FI, because “this day is about YOU, not him, and you can wear what you want!” To be clear: I do not want to wear the green gown.

3. Since before we got engaged, she has been demanding to walk me down the aisle, since my father is deceased. She has flown into several rages when I’ve told her (yet again) that FI is walking me down…like she’s never heard it before.

4. She is constantly trying to get FIs phone number out of me. Prior to us getting engaged, one such conversation stands out: after telling her nicely she doesnt need his number, she responded “I just want to talk to my son-in-law.” When I replied reminding her that he is not her son-in-law, she said “that is what I want to talk to him about.”

5. Along the same lines as #4, several times a week she texts or calls asking when FI is going to a) take her out to lunch b) bring her flowers c) call her and “kiss up to his mother-in-law.” I advised that she should not hold her breath.

@edgebee:  that’s just sad.

my FMIL asks us all the time when we’re having kids. apparently, she’s been asking FI ever since he was 18. she realllllllly wants grandchildren.

DH doesn’t have a great relationship with his parents so he doesn’t call or see them as much as they’d like him to.  After we got engaged, and to this day, she’ll call me “to make sure his phone is working” and then drop little bombs that are supposed to passive-aggressively make me feel bad for not calling here every other day.  Prime examples:

“Oh, did I mention I had pneumonia last month?  I had to go to the hospital for a few days, but I didn’t want to bother you kids…”

“Aunt Jane has a brain tumor.  Your SIL sent her some nice flowers but I didn’t want to bother you kids with it because I know you’re so busy…”

Then FIL also calls and adds his $0.02:

“You guys really need to call Mom more.  She’s worried about you.”

“Mom hasn’t gotten a thank you note for that ugly knicknack she got you… did you forget to send one again?”

 

I can’t even imagine how bad it’s going to get when we have kids.
