I honestly never felt comfortable with my MIL watching my daughter, so I never asked her to baby-sit.  First of all, she smokes, and I don't want that around my daughter.  Secondly, she annoys me.  Well, one day at her mother's house DH's entire family was over and his cousin was telling me that if I ever needed a baby-sitter, she would watch her.  Well, my MIL said, "She probably will never ask you, because she doesn't even let me baby-sit."  I thought, "What a b!tch."  So, I said to his cousin, "Well, actually, we have something to do next weekend, so you can come by and watch her then.  That's what she gets for opening her big mouth.

My MIL and her family feel the need to let everyone know everything great that someone in the family has done.  MIL has gone as far as making up stories about people to make them look better.  It doesn't help that she has the biggest freakin' mouth in the world.  Do you need proof?  Since she is young and never really had a steady job, she sits around all day on the phone with her sisters, who also never worked.  She talks for hours.  One month, her phone bill was $650, and she is the only one who talks on the phone.  Thank god she doesn't call me anymore.  One day, DH's cousin, whom I hardly ever talk to, started asking me about things that I never told her.  I guess that DH must have told her and she told everyone.  Another time, DH's little brother came over and decided to spend the night.  He called his mom.  Well, I overheard his conversation, and I could tell that his mom was asking him who was there, if we had had any friends over , if he got to play with my daughter (his niece), what we did, if he ate, if we ate ,what we ate, where my husband was, where my daughter was (at midnight), where I was, on and on.  Later that week, I was talking to his cousin and she said, "I heard that you guys had so and so over last week and you guys did such and such."  I was sooooooooo annoyed.

DD was born with a full head of hair, so by 6 months, around Thanksgiving, she needed a haircut.  I decided that I would do it myself.  Besides, it's just a baby.  Well, my MIL just so happens to be a hairdresser.  On Thanksgiving (at her house), she announced, in front of everyone, "So, you gave her a haircut, huh?  And I'm the beautician."  So I said, "So what.  I did a pretty good job."  And, so, she said, "Well, maybe you should come work with me," in a sarcastic way.  I got up and walked away.  She didn't see me or DD for the rest of the day.

This past Halloween, DH insisted on going to his grandmother's house, where his parents would be.  First of all, all that Halloween is to me is fun for my DD.  It is not a big deal, not even a real holiday.  MIL practically begged us to go over there.  I said no, but DH felt sorry for her, so he insisted.  We only stayed for 10 minutes, because it was pure he!!.  As we walked in, my DD was snatched, literally, out of my arms.  MIL took DD into the kitchen by herself.  She didn't even let FIL or GMIL see her.  I walked into the kitchen, but she didn't see me, and I heard her whispering to my DD how much grandma loves her, and how she wished that she could see her every day, blah, blah.  What a freak!  Well, I snatched my DD, who, by the way, is only 1 year old, and I walked out of that stinky, smoke infested house.
