I think that your SO has a point…she may never be happy with the woman that ends up to be perfect for her son. She seems to be just finding little things for her to grasp on to that “bother her”…and telling your SO about it. I wouldnt worry about it too much…if this is how she is going to be…then there is not much that you can do…but the next time she comes maybe you can make a little something for her to eat just to shut her up..lol.

eh. In-laws can be that way. my Mother-In-Law has all types of secret expectations of me that only come to light when there is an issue – i didnt wash the dishes, i didnt make dinner, etc. luckily, she lives a state away.  ignore her crazy attempts for control and work on keeping the relationship with Boyfriend or Best Friend strong.

Maybe bake her some cookies and send them to her thanking her for the lovely visit. Apologize, even though you shouldn’t have to, for not being totally accommodating to her, with the reason that you were so worried about her son that you just couldn’t think straight while her son was having his procedure.

Could you speak with the Future Mother-In-Law directly?  Have a girl’s day and mention how much you love her son and admire her for raising such a good person…flattery will get you places sometimes.

I like noritake’s suggestion. I too have an Future Mother-In-Law who’s ranted about how i’m never going to be good enough. Half the time I ignore that she exists (when i’m not around her) and half the time (when i’m around her) I KILL HER WITH KINDNESS. I haven’t given a reason for that lady to say one bad word about me. Granted, you didn’t know this time what she was talking about, but really, she’s going to look like a petty fool if you’re always smiling and friendly and doing nice things for her.

Just, you know, vent to us behind her back 🙂
