My MIL 'acts' really sweet on the surface, even emailing "forwards" about friendship and puppies and things. She talks about love and wanting to be close and missing her grandkids. But whenever she comes to visit (she's out of state) she ends up being catty and even saying rude things. It's like she lacks a censor. Last visit she was here for mydaughter's birth and the 2nd day in the hospital when my daughter was having problems, she took her and said, "Your mommy is going to starve you! Your mommy just doesn't have enough milk to feed you does she?!" This wasn't the first time she made rude comments about my breastfeeding, or rude comments in general. My husband always takes up for her, takes her side, or makes excuses for her. If you have had problems too, how did you handle them without making your DH angry at you or taking her side?
