She can use Tools & what not & be A Fix it all! She's A Real Find. She's intelligent & if he was her choice we were going for it! He doesn't want kids 'cuz he has kids from his 1st marriage.

  • Well why don't you just stay the hell out of the drama and just be there for your DD. Drama loves drama.

  • Well if the new MIL is that old, you won't have to worry about her forever if you get my drift. Yes I know that sounds terrible, but it's true. I guess until that day, your daughter will just have to make the best of it, and try not to play into the MIL's games.
