  • Well I would replace the pot, tell hubby to ask her to stay out of your business, and would not refriend her on Facebook,,I would just be distant for a bit after you give her the new pot,,, next time don't fight in front of her,,,count to 10 mamma!

  • I agree with admckenzie- replace the pot and say I'm sorry. I also think your hubs needs to tell her " enough bitching about my wife, I really don't care to hear it anymore. It is over and done with lets put it behind us and move on with our life."

  • Replace the pot and tell her you are sorry

  • Buy her a new pot and if she still doesn't shut up about it just let her be.

  • My MIL battled over quite a bit of things, sounds to me like this is over more than a pot. Have you gotten along in the past or is this just the latest in the family drama? Get her a new pot, maybe a gift certificate to some place she likes or offer to take her shopping for a new pot (if you can stand to be around her for this long). Apologize in person, then drop it. If she brings it up again change the subject.

  • I agree, buy her a new pot and apologize again. And I agree with vnw1405, if she still goes on about it, let it go, there isn't much more you can do.

  • I think you need to replace the pot, apologize and just get over it. It sounds like both of you are a little immature.

  • ANYTHING can be solved with kind words, understanding & good communication. Go to her, but don't put up a guard. Be open & honest with her. Make an effort.

    Buying her a new pot would be a great idea.

  • i have afford to replace the pot but it like she doesnt even care but thanks all of u for ur opion and they only reason she got involved is cause we were going home from his work and she lives upstairs and i guess heard us but anyways it is just sad that it even had to go this way

  • I think you already know to keep her out of you and your husbands disputes by now.but what done is done.all you can do is apologize and give it time to pass over.
