Is it wrong of me trying to think of things to do outside of the apartment on Saturday when I know that my MIL is thinking about coming out? I love the woman but she is completely different when she gets around her grandkids. She'll take the child right from your arms with the comment that 'you get to hold him/her all the time.' I've tried talking to her but it goes in one ear and out the other. I was not raised that way. I was raised that you ask to hold the babe or wait for an invite plus what the mom says is the law no matter who you are. I have told her that I don't give a lot of candy to my 15 month old because I want the kid to ask for fruit and veggies but MIL does NOT listen. She'll give candy and say 'I'll give you this little bit because your mom doesn't want you to have any.' I could beat the woman. I'm so ready for my sister-in-law to have kids to get MIL off of my back and focus on someone else.
