Why do people always have to give an opinion????

I feel like I cant tell my mom or mother inlaw anything?? They always have to say feed her that??? or shes going to be a pig for halloween...I feel like if they don't like it they can fork over the dough for a better costume.....I live really far and i want to stop talking to them.....what would you do??? They really piss me off!

  • Make no point to call. Give yourself some space and make your time limitied.

  • Girl, this is why people move away from family. They can be a real pain in the ass. Don't offer up info and keep conversations to a minimum. Don't let them get to you. And just be happy you don't live next door. I think the pig costume is adorable too!

  • Your mom and MIL, feel like they know best, but even with all their experience, it is still only thier opinion. Just say, "Well thx for your input." or something to that effect. Like you appreciate their opinion, but you don't have to take their advice. I would say to stop talking to them. Maybe they don't even realize how rude they are being, you could try explaining it to them, but I seriously doubt they'd "get" it. So just take it with a grain of salt, even just agree with them, since they don't live near you, and go ahead and do things your way. YOU are the mother. Sometimes grandmas have a hard time respecting the parent, and feel they know best. I am a grandma, and I make it a point to respect their mom's, they make all decisions concerning their children. I totally support their decisions. But not all mom's just let it roll off, just say "Oh yeah, you may have a point." Then in your mind say "WHATEVER!!" LOL
