I think my MIL is a fantasic grandma and she watches my kids and we pay her. It makes me feel safe and I know they are well cared for. But aside from that I just dont want to be around them. I am not to fond of any of them because of all that has gone on in the past. They lie, talk crap about each other and still try to act like a giddy family, and I just cant do that. My BF will agree to go to bbq's and different beach things and I am just miserable at them. Some of them annoy me all day there just loud, cause playing, talk crap to each other, and get drunk. I just dont know what to tell him about me not wanting to hang out all the time with them. Hes not that close to them either and has had many problems too. it is just like normal in there fam and I hate it!Answer Question

When your SO agrees to go to family events, let him, but don't go with him. I can't stand my MIL, she's controlling, nosy and a huge gossip. I've stopped answering the phone when she calls (thank goodness for caller ID!) and don't with hubby very often when he goes to visit (only when he specifically asks and then I try not to have direct conversation with her). I do have to ask why in the world your MIL is expecting payment for spending time with her grand kids, that seems a little extreme to me.

What do you know about delayed cord cutting? Did you do it? Why?
