Ok, my MIL and I do NOT have the best of relationships but are civil to each other. Well today she came over to babysit my 2 kids so I could get some errands done without them. Well, before I left there was a new message on my answering machine. When I came home the message was erased and she didn't tell me what it was...I mean I knew what it was because I heard it being left, but come on! This isn't HER house! She shouldn't have listened to it! AND She let my DD GLUE magazine clippings to my WALL!!! And when I said "Andi you know we only put things on paper and NOT Mommy's walls" My MIL said and I quote "Well I told her to do it and it was OK as long as we removed it before you came home"
SOOO...she is teaching my 3 year old DD to not only glue things to my walls, she is teaching her that it is OK to do things behind my back as long as she doesn't get caught!
What would you do?

I have this type of problem but with my mom. I don't let her come to my house and be here without me here. She goes through the cabinets, our drawers, reads our mail and would under mind us to our children. She says she "has the right" to do all of this because she is my mom and my things are her things. We have never been able to make her understand that she is - well - crazy! I've been married 30 years and she still tries to under mind me to my 14 yo. I haven't found a solution. If you do, let me know. I'll try it on my mom.
