The only time my MIL would show up at my house was to confront my DH and me.  She would beg and cry to him.  I will never forget when she came over, one day, and told me that she was here to make amends with her son, and that she loves him, and wants him back in her life.

The first thing DH asked her was why had she not acknowledged her grandson, and why was she trying to destroy his family.  She insisted that, when he met me, he changed, and that I took him away from her.  I guess she could not handle the fact that her youngest son is a MAN now, not a little boy, and that he is HAPPILY MARRIED.

She hates the fact that she doesn't have control over him anymore.  I told her that, the more she tries to control him, the more he backs away.  I also pointed out the fact that she is trying to control his life, to the point of ruining it.

DH started to not want anything to do with her.  He said that she will never change her ways, and he is okay with cutting her out of his life.  This was 4 years ago.

We have cut her out of our lives and it has been great.  She still finds ways to contact me and harass me, but she doesn't know where we live now, and she can not just show up starting trouble.  It feels great!

MIL tried to ruin the day of my son's baptism.  My FIL did not even come.  I thought that this would have been a great opportunity for him to finally meet his grandson.  DS was born in August, and his baptism was in November.  Not once did DH's father come to see him.  He always made excuses as to why he has yet to see his grandson.

When the ceremony was over, the Priest said that we could take pictures on the altar.  At first, my MIL did not want to get in the picture with my mother, my son, and me.  She finally agreed to take a picture.  She stood next to my mother, with her arms straight down, and a nasty face.  She couldn't even fake a smile.

After the picture was taken, she walked over to me and shoved a small gift box in my hand.  Then, she stormed out of the church.  She had the WORST attitude.

I continued to take pictures with my family, in the church, for about another 15 minutes.  After that, I walked out to my car, which was parked behind the church.  All of a sudden, I heard this woman screaming, "B!tch!!!  I wish my son never met you!  I hate you, and I cannot wait for the day my DS wakes up and leaves you and your baby."

I turned around and saw that it was my MIL.  DH told her to leave, and that she was out of line.  He also told her that she was not allowed to come to the reception.  I put DS in the car, and then my DH's brother started to yell at me from his car.  He waited outside the church, too.  I couldn't believe that anyone would act like that around and in a church.  My ILs clearly have issues.

My MIL would not acknowledge my son as her GS.  It was horrible.  For his first Christmas, she sent DH a GPS Navigation system, and NOTHING for her GS.  DH was so upset that he mailed the GPs back to her.  She couldn't come to our house to give our son a gift for his first Christmas.  She couldn't even send a card.  But, she could send DH a GPs?  This is where she started to try to "buy" DH.  She had never bought expensive gifts for him in the past, and all of a sudden she started?

For a the next 2 years, she would send cards and gifts addressed to DH, and NOTHING for her GS.  She would send me threatening emails, voice mails, and text messages.  She wished me harm many different times.  Each time she sent something to him, he sent it back.

On Thanksgiving, DH got a message from his sister saying, "Hi Stranger.  Happy Thanksgiving to you only!!!  That baby looks nothing like you!  I still love YOU!!  Even though, when you got married, SHE cut off your balls!!"  Then, DH got a text message from his mother saying, "Is today the day you will forgive me and forget your wife?  Are you ready to leave?"  She sent me a letter saying, "Blood is always thicker than water."

For my first Mother's Day, my MIL sent me a text message saying, "I hope something bad happens to you, and that I am around to see it."  For years, she would try to bribe my DH to leave me.  She would send me horrible text messages, and call my phone at all hours of the night and hang up.  She is so sick and twisted.

The last straw, for DH, was when she sent him a text message telling him to leave me and our son.  If he did not do it, she was going to take him out of her will.  He changed his cell phone number.

I never liked going to my IL's.  They are rude, racist, and they smoke cigarettes in the house.  Their kindness, in the beginning, towards me was so fake.  I tried to keep the peace and not say anything.  I let a lot of things go, because I was just dating their son, and I did not want any problems.

When I got married and became pregnant, their true colors started to show.  I stopped going to their house, because I did not want to harm my unborn baby by breathing in all the secondhand smoke.  DH and I also explained to them that, once the baby was born, we were not going to bring our children there unless they stopped smoking.  They would have to come to our smoke free house to visit.  I told my MIL that I will be staying home and taking time off from work, and that she could come by any time to visit.

My MIL came by my house while DH was at work.  Luckily, my parents were there to witness what went down.  MY father opened the door, and she shoved a package at him while saying, "This is for the baby.  It's from my sister, (DH's aunt).  It has been sitting in my house, and I do not want in there anymore."

She started to turn to walk away, when she saw me approach the door.  She went off on me, calling me a b!tch, and saying that she wished her son had never met me.  All of this was said in front of my parents.  Before I could even respond, my father told her to calm down and come in to see her GS.  She said, "Why would I want to?  I have to go to Walmart."  My father insisted that she come in to talk, and to see her GS.

After a few minutes of her yelling and making scene in front of my house, she came in.  I kept my cool.  I handed my son to her, so she could hold him.  She held him as if she was holding something vile.  She held him for less than a minute, and gave him right back to me.  She walked to the front door and said that she had to go to Walmart.
