My husband and I are about to go on vacation for a week. Its our first vacation alone since our son was born, he'll be staying with friends of the family. My INSANE MIL has decided that this is not appropriate and she needs to put a stop to it. Might I also mention that my MIL lives across the country and dumped my son with his grandfather when he was 4 because she wanted to run away with her bf...and my hubby's half brother? Instead of doing the mature, sensible thing like explaining to us that she's uncomfortable with us leaving her grandson (who she never calls to ask about unless its to bitch at me for something she heard from my FIL-hubby's grandfather that raised him) with an 18 year old and her family (I've known them for years) she's trying to put an end to the trip by causing a rift between my husband and I! She's trying to plant in hs mind that our son isn't his! WTF! Hubby's not going for it, but wtf do I do?

Actually there are times when it is appropriate to go away as a couple, and if MIL was sane and didn't like the family friend watching the grandson, she would offer to fly out and watch him herself. That's what I would do if one of my kids needed a babysitter so they could get away. Of course with this woman's track record of dumping babies and running off I don't know that I would want her watching my kid. MIL is obviously projecting her own problems. If I was your hubby i might want to get DNA tested along with the person he thinks is his father. MIL could be projecting a long buried secret about herself. I would highly recommend that when your MIL calls you either hand the phone to your DH or tell her he isn't home and hang up on her. He should be dealing with her. The two of you have never met. It is not your job to take her crap.
