My MIL recently told my mom that I "like to make babies but not take care of them". I don't know where she pulled that from because I'm obviously married to her son, and we're having our 3rd baby and are financially stable since he's a soldier. Apparently I also amazingly make babies by myself. After hearing that, I told her not to bother coming to my 2nd daughter's 1st birthday coming up. I don't want that bitch there if that's how she feels about me and how I raise them. Unfortunately before this happened I ordered a buttload of pro XMAS pics of the kids and was planning to send her some. But now I'm so pissed I don't know. I have a ton extra though, I might as well, even though I'm not speaking or planning to ever speak to that woman again. What would you do?

She sounds awful, and stupid foolish. It will be extremely difficult, but you should continue to include her in your childrens' lives, including birthdays and pictures. She is their grandmother. To exclude her would give her more ammunition against you- undeserved though it is. Treat her with respect, even though she seems to me to have forfeited this, but do it anyway, so your children might see how a parent should be treated, so that you prove to yourself that you are the more civilized person, and in the hope that perhaps eventually she'll treat you as she should. It won't be easy, but it is better than letting the tension and bad feelings continue to grow and grow- the children will be thes one to suffer most. I am sorry that you are going through this. It really is wrong of her.
