Holy crap!!! I would say don’t speak to them again, but that’s not really fair to your daughter. But then again, if she can hit you in a rage, then who knows what she could do to your daugther. And fighting and arguing like that in front of her??? It seems like your husband is on your side, so I would tell his mother if she doesn’t either get counseling or go into anger management, then you are sorry but she will not be able to see your daughter anymore.

(I am so sick of WB eating my posts!)

I’ll try to remember what I said.

DO NOT subject your daughter to that witch again until she smartens up!!! I am horrified for you! Tell your daughter that grandma went on a trip and she won’t be seeing her!

I am so upset for all three of you. Your Darling Husband, daughter and yourself!

My Mother-In-Law called me a bitch and I thought that was bad! This story is much worse. If my Mother-In-Law ever hit me, the police would have to be involved for my assulting her back!

Thank God, Darling Husband has your back!

She hit you. No matter how small the punch was. It wasn’t a little push or something meant to be funny. 

She hit you and said fuck; while you were holding your daughter and infront of an impressionable child.

I’d be done with them both. Let your husband figure out what to do. Sounds like he’s done with them both too. Glad he’s “sticking up for you” and realizes that her behavior and antics aren’t remotely tolerable or appropriate. 

Sounds like you have a great husband and sorry this all happened.

WOW… no matter how mad she was she should have never ever used your daughter to take out her aggression towards you. Sounds like someone doesn’t like the term “wife” (territorial much?)… Good for your husband for sticking up for you. It’s too bad that your daughter might have to spend some time not seeing her grandmother, but isn’t it better than having to see the g-ma she loves so much get physical and immature with her parents?

Good luck to you and good for you for just walking away.

Does it even compute to her that she’s done something wrong?

Obviously you are the object of her agression in the most primal way since it’s you that she hit and not her son. You gave her no cause to lash out at you. Obviously someone lied and told her that you called her names behind her back, which is probably where the switch was flipped in the first place.

I don’t have any advice since I’m the type of person to just write people like that out of my life, but I do want to say how sorry I am that you’re going through this. How amazing is your husband, though, sticking up for you like that!

@CherryCola11: Do they have mental problems? Scratch that, it sounds like your in-laws and my in-laws should have lunch.

It’s bad enough she treated you like garbage. (Your hair is too long? WTF?), but disrespecting you in front of their grandchild (YOUR DAUGHTER!) and then hitting you?

Please please stay far away from them.

Like I said, your daughter is young enough that you can just say “grandma went on a trip.”

I agree with the posters above. The way she behaved and spoke infront of a small child is unacceptable, and hitting you (or missing and hitting your DD) is ridiculous and entirely inappropriate. I’d have a calm talk with Darling Husband later (once you’re both separated from the event for a day or two) and decide what to do.

Personally, I’d take one heck of a long break from them, expect a genuine apology and a promise to keep all of that behavior away from your Dirty Delete before I agreed to see them again. Also, respect your husband’s choice in how he deals with them. If he doesn’t want them around, then that’s important because it’s his family and his choice. If he wants to brush it past and continue these types of dinners, then I’d discuss it more with him because this really was a serious violation of many, many boundaries. He sounds like he’s a good husband though, and really taking you and Dirty Delete into consideration with his parents’ rediculous behavior.

There’s something wrong with these people. Keep your sweet child far, far away from them.

Have you and your husband sat and discussed this?

FH no longer has a good relationship with his parents. When we first started dating his mother threw a brick at my car window and then paid some kids to spray paint my parents house. She is crazy. You’d think we both would have realized that we need to keep away from them but it wasn’t until we sat down and discussed and made sure we were both on the same page that it happened.

That is bizarre, besides why would she curse infront of your child?
