  • I lived with my first MIL for 2 years while I was pregnant and up until my daughter's first birthday. It was fine during the pregnancy - she was very pleasant. After I gave birth, though, I was just a piece of dirt and she acted like she wanted to be the mother of my child. I know I was a new mother, but she just HAD to be the first with everything that happened with my daughter. The first to hold her, the first to give her a bath, the first to feed her solid foods, she even tore off her umbilical stump so she could be that special person it happened to! My poor baby bled for days, thankfully not a lot, but I had to keep it covered and cleaned. I was so happy when I moved out of there.

  • I am living with my mother in law right now. I have lived with her for about 4 years now... Somedays we fight boy do we fight... but at the end of the day i see her as my mom and she see me as her daughter. We moved from Alabama to Georgia when she left her husbend when i found out i was preg. I of courese had twins i need her help as much as she needs mine. Of course i wish i had my own house from time to time but we save so much money this way from both familys. besides she has her own little place up stairs it was rentavated into a motherinlaws suite.

  • I have never lived with my MIL. I think at first we would get along, but as time wore on we wouldn't. They go to bed at 8 pm and I don't. I mean my kids do and that is my down time, I can't imagine going to bed that early who does that?
