what would you tell your mother inlaw if she would tell you her son must be blind to be with you?

she didnt tell me to my face she just lefted recorded on my answering machine, and I texted her back and told her off! since I opened my hubby's eyes in making him realize how much of a bitch she is with my son and that a whole year can go by and she wont even bother to call how any of us are doing, and she always tries blaming us that we dont take my son, but I think she should call and ask for him or pick him up atleast once. she goes to visit her other son 4 hours away from the city and us that we leave here local just 15 minutes away she never comes at all which i'm glad because I dont want her here but i'm mean atleast to pick up her one and only grandson so she can stop telling all her family its us that dont let her see him.

  • Sounds like you did all you can do. Just leave her alone. You're happy. You're husbands happy. You're kids are happy. I wouldnt disturb that.

  • You need to be the bigger person. Stooping to her level and 'telling her off' is the reaction she's most likely looking for. It provides leverage for her, and now she's got it in writing. Next time she does something stupid like that, call (not text) and let her know that it was hurtful and you would appreciate it if she wouldn't do things like that, and by the way, how was your day today? Grit your teeth, be an adult, and be pleasant. Then she won't have anything to throw at you and she will either warm up to you or completely ignore you because you aren't giving her what she wants. :) Good Luck!

  • That sounds like something my mother in law would do.

  • I wouldn't tell my MIL anything. If she did that she'd be out of our lives. My husband would not tolerate that and neither would I, but we wouldn't need to create further drama. Just a neat, tidy removal from our lives.

  • What would I tell her? Goodbye, probably.

  • I would come back with a witty answer that's kind of telling her off, but not really. Something like, "I'm sorry you have that low of an opinion of your son" and then just walk away. That's kinda like saying f-you in a nice way ;) LOL It's still a dig at her, but a polite one... LOL

  • Sounds a lot like my fiance's mom. She called & left a voice mail on my Moms phone saying I was immature & that i'll be an adult someday because we don't allow her to see our son since they had pot growing on their back porch while we were living there. I didn't say anything to her but when she called my fiance he told her that it was wrong & that he was going to let her see our son but now that she said those things to me she screwed herself. I just wanted to punch her ugly ass in the face & tell her to grow up & stop spending money she has saved up for bills on weed.

    but the bigger person, you will out live her. lol
