  • Yup, I do.
    She ignores us and we ignore her.
    It's a great relationship. :)

  • Yes but thats because she passed away 11 yrs ago before I even knew her son.

    I wish I could know her...good, bad, or indifferent. It makes me sad that I wont get that chance.

  • I get along with mine just fine. We see her a few times a year, and she's a wonderful woman!

  • Mine is a very nice woman. We don't always get along, but who does. When DH and I got married she loaned me her only pearl earrings, and when I tried to give them back she wouldn't take them. She said I was another one of her daughters. 15 yrs later I invited her into my home to live when FIL died. She declined but knows she has a place if she needs it.

  • I get along fine with her. I quite like her actually. She once brought her dogs over and they drove me nuts. So she put them in their kennel in the garage where they didn't climb all over my furniture and bite my dogs any more. She knows hers are horribly behaved.

    Otherwise, I've never once had a disagreement with her.

  • Not at all. My mil is an alcoholic but won't seek treatment. I have very little respect for her because of things she's said and done to my husband, some of which were in front of our daughter.

  • Not really since I "stole her baby boy" from her. LOL. She loves that we have kids of course. She recently came to my house and got my older boys because I was so sick I could barely move, let alone pick up my 6 month old. But instead of getting him, or all three, she took my older boys because "he might cry". Never mind that she has three kids of her own that cried! I could have used my older boys help had I known she was just going to take them! She's mostly ridiculous, saying and doing the dumbest things. I try to avoid her because she doesn't listen to a thing anyone says unless SHE is talking. Then its super important. I am trying to be nice now because DH is in Iraq and she is upset, as am I.
