MIL wants to marry her son . . . YUCK!!

MIL is at it again!!  I'm starting to think that she is in love with her son.  She behaves towards him in a way that is disturbing.  One weekend they took the babies for a few hours.  She asked me what we were doing that night.  I told her that it was a date night.  She said, "Oh, I remember when DH and I used to go on dates."  EWWW!!  When he was younger, they went to the park, museums, shopping, etc.  You know, mother-son bonding.  Well, she calls it "dates".  DH hates it when she calls it that, but she still says it.  Also, one time DH and I were in her kitchen getting something to drink and he kissed me.  She came around the corner and said, "Stop it, you're making me jealous."  Yuck!  Every time we are holding hands, kissing, or being sweet to each other she has to say something that is very disturbing.  It gets on my nerves.  Whenever we are close and talking to each other, she leans in and asks what we are saying!  She also loves to stare at DH all the time, especially when we are together.  Then, when she is around him, she always tries to hold his hand and act like I do with him.  I feel like she is competing with me for DH's attention.  It's so sad when mothers cannot let go of their children and realize that they are not married to their DS!!!

MIL is so crazy!!  One night she called DH and me at 4 am because she had a dream that I was mistreating my children, and she grilled DH about it.  She kept him on the phone for an hour, asking him about my parental skills.  Who calls at 4 am????  I'm a great mother, BTW.  What is her problem??

MIL had the nerve to tell me, on the day that I gave birth to my twins (boy/girl), that I should get used to the fact that my DD will become pregnant at a young age and cause me nothing but trouble, and my son will get married and forget about me.  The nerve!  Her DD got pregnant at 17 and ran off to be with the father of the baby.  She came back home a few years ago, when her BF left her and she was pregnant again.  And she swears that DH has abandoned her in some way.  We live close to them and he sees and talks to them all the time.  She was lucky that I was out of it due to the meds, because I would have ripped her a new one!

My MIL is a pain in my @ss and SIL is no different.  She copies everything that I do!!  At first I thought it was flattering, but now it's creepy.  Here are a few things that she has done to look and be like me.  I have always dyed my hair red.  Well, she went and dyed her hair red.  She even asked me what color I used!  I didn't tell her and she bought the one that she thought I chose.  She asks me what mousse I use in my hair because she wants hair like mine.  It was ok at first, but now it's annoying being asked over and over about my hair.  Every time I do something to it, she goes and does it.  I got really cute slippers that look like sandals, and the next day she went and bought some and kept telling me about it, and how much better hers are.  We were shopping together and I saw a jacket that I loved and wanted.  She wanted the same jacket.  Even though, earlier, she saw the jacket and said that she did not like it.  So annoying.  She only likes clothes if I like them.  I love pink and have a lot of pink things.  She hated pink, but, you guessed it, now she says she loves it.  She buys everything pink, like me.  I have always wanted a particular type of dog, and now she says that she wants one!  I am a purse freak and now so is she.  She never even owned a purse until she knew that I love purses.  I know these things seem trivial, but imagine it in your face EVERY DAY!!  Imagine everything you do being copied.  I like my individual style and being me.  I don't like it when someone tries to copy that and become me.  Thank you for letting me vent!!

My MIL is starting to get very controlling about my children.  Today she said that I am not to have any more children.  Two is enough.  She said that she does not know if she can love another baby as much as she loves my twins.  Uh, excuse me??  Isn't it DH's and my choice to have as many children as we want??  She asked me if DH and I were going to have any more children, and I said that we have not decided yet.  The nerve to tell me that I cannot have any more children.  I told her I may have one or two more, and she said that she will talk to DH about "correcting" that.  She gets on my nerves sometimes!!  I feel like having another just to piss her off.  Haha!!

MIL told me that I should feed my children cereal in their formula.  That would not be a problem, except they are 2 months old!  They were born prematurely, as well.  So we are not going to even consider cereal until at least 4 months.  But, she was so insistent on them having cereal.  She even demanded it!  She knew that we were against it, so she dropped it.  A few days ago I found out that she has been feeding them cereal!!!  What a witch!!  She said that our doctor does not know what he is saying, and since she fed her daughter formula at 2 months, my kids should, too.  First off, her DD was a full term baby and weighed 10 lbs.  She told me that she wants big grandbabies, like her DD.  By the way, SIL weighs nearly 400 lbs.  Ummm, I don't think so!!!  So, now I am very angry at her and DH will talk to her about it.  She does not seem to listen to me when I talk to her, especially when I tell her . . .

        Signed - No Cereal Please!!

After meeting me for the first time, DH asked his DM what she thought of me.  She told him that once he's done slumming, he should let her know because she has a girl who is perfect for him.  I'm glad I wasn't there, because I think I would have decked her!!

        Signed - According to MIL, DH is "slumming"
