My step MIL is Mexican American. She wants my kids to call her Ama. I do not know spanish but when I look it up, it says it is english for Mom. I know the spanish name for grandma is Abuela (sp?) but also Ama sounds like Mama which is what I am called. I don't even consider her to be a grand mother to my kids. I do not like this woman. No one does but my FIL. She is a "know it all" "I am right" "I know best" kind of person. what would you say to her and how do you deal with a person like that?
Also, when we go to visit, she never child proofs the house and then gets upset if the kids touch her stuff.. She also took down all the pics of my hubby and two sisters and put up pics of her family and daughter. What do you ladies think of this situation??? I am at a lose. I am confused and frustrated. I am posting Anon because I have family on here who know her. sorry. I can't move further away and my kids are 3yrs and 18 months
