  • I do actually like my MIL - sometimes she can drive me crazy but hey she loves our kids and would do anything for us or them...... :o) My SIL's well that's a whole other conversation!

  • eh..fond is a strong word, with emotion attached. not that i don't like her..i love her, as i do all creatures. she's just rather absent with our family (really into her daughter's family!), and i just don't give a dang anymore.

  • Yes I am!!! I didn't used to be though. When my kids were babies, we butted heads a lot, but we get along a lot better now.

  • I honestly can't say if I like my MIL or not.

    I've never met the woman in person. And I only speak to her maybe 2 times (3 at the most) a year. And that's only for a few minutes.

  • Fond, not so much.... But I do Love and Respect her. Now I can say she doesn't respect others much, but she at least it does me and I couldn't be more happy about that. Me and her also know what it's like to suffer a long-term illness, so that has brought us closer because of it.

  • Yes, very much. I love her like a real mother instead of someone I just married into.
    She's great. We talk a lot, go shopping sometimes, went and played bingo a few times :-)
    She's not like the usual pushy, bitchy, "you're not good enough for my son" type of mother in laws.
    I got very lucky. :-)

  • Not really. But I try to be nice since she created such a wonderful man, my husband. She is a stinker.

  • I am. She is great and treats me very well and is very loving toward the kiddos. She's a great grandma.
