Sounds like she’s just really envious of your relationship with your mom! Which is understandable, but shes doesnt have to make it so weird! Maybe she would really appreciate some quality mother-son time for mother’s day, so that might be a great idea (even if for you it’s a “f*ck you” to her), that might be exactly what will solve her weirdness… or at least help it.

My FMIL got kind of strange really close to our wedding and would plan things for just DH and her to do together, and would invite me along, but not the whole rest of my relatives that were visiting. She knew I was going to spend every waking minute with family that flew 27 hours to be with us (we see her at least every month or 2), so i just kinda found it strange (OK, I was kinda pissed lol). But afterwards she gave me a big hug and said “thanks for letting me have quality time with my baby”. I realized that she just wasnt comfortable asking me to basically leave them alone, but really just wanted one-on-one time with him.

Hope your plan helps de-weirdify things a bit!

I know exactly how you feel !!! My SO mother is anything but a peach she’s controlling rude and if things don’t go her way or if everything’s not about her she will have a tantrum so over it !! So now I just pretty much try and avoid her which is sad but what it’s come down to because of her behavior !!
