  • In the begining I was insecure and took that out on them. but after some soul searching and healing I am much more happy with myself and my parenting skills. I actually love them. However I'm not to keen on the grandparent-in-laws. They are obnoxious I try to limit my time with them. DH is the one who takes the kids up there. Now with my MIL we acutally go shopping and have lunch on frequent occasions.

  • i'm one of the lucky ones too i guess. my inlaws have their faults but once u get past the smoking and drinking and letting my SILs (teenagers) walk all over them... they're pretty great :D i wouldn't want them raising MY kids, and the extended family in-laws have some problems but dont' we all? plus i know that no matter what they will be there for us and for our kids and that's all that matters!

  • I love my in laws. Unfortunately my MIL passed away 6 years ago, 1 year before we got married, but I am so blessed that I was able to meet her many times before she passed away. My FIL is just the sweetest person! My SIL and BIL are great as well! I'm very lucky!
