Couldn't help but use that title.
Have any of your family members ever told you something they said or thought about you that was negative that maybe they should not have shared with you?
My MIL is not the most coherrent person. She rambles and nods off while talking to you, so most times I don't pay attention to the stuff she says. HOWEVER!!
While just hanging out at our place one day she turned to me in tears and said, " I apologize. I have to apologize. I know I was wrong. I called you a n*gger. Your not a n*gger n*gger. Not like those other ones you know? I told them I don't why he would be with a n*gger, but I didn't know you. I'm so sorry."
Wthell lol. Mind you this isn't when we first met or anything, but this point dh and I are 10 years and 4 kids in.. where the heck did that confession come from?
I didn't bother me, I found it pretty funny. I mean the heck is a "n*gger n*gger"?? Dh and my FIL were mortified.
Turns out she was talking to her mom about me and her mom is quite the racist and will tell you what she thinks about you to your face. Needless to say the only time she has seen my babies has been through pics people show her because she can keep that craziness over there with her and far away from my little ones.
ANYWAY, any revelations you think maybe that person should have kept to themselves?
