- Wedding: June 2011
(This is a story of annoyance in 2 parts. Bear with me.)
So, I know every woman on this board has been asked about babies. I get pestered about it so much I just want to tell people to lay off my uterus already.
Darling Husband and I have been saying for a while now that it’s going to be at least 2-4 years after the wedding. I’m only 24, I feel no reason to rush.
So, today, the ONE person who I thought was on my side, my Mother-In-Law, decided that she’s suddenly lonely and in camp baby, and wanted to know how long it was going to be.
Long story short, she wants someone to play with. Sorry, I’m not an incubator… you can wait.
Now, on to part 2:
Over the course of the conversation, I jokeingly said something about what she would want her “Grandma” name to be, because she and DH’s step-mom share the same name, and they can’t both be “Grandma SameFirstName”.
I told her that StepMIL said she would be Nana (which I KNOW Mother-In-Law doesn’t want to be called), and she started getting all pissy about how StepMIL isn’t going to be the baby’s grandma!!!
EXCUSE ME? She’s been around since he was 7, and she’s married to his dad. I’m not going to be like “Sorry, but you aren’t allowed to spend time with my baby b/c Mother-In-Law doesn’t like it.
I had a very hard time not going off on her… I very politely told her “No, she’ll still be grandma”
I can just forsee so much “Grandma” drama coming, and it makes me want to go crazy.
… and scene. 🙂
