long story short, my parents are buying themselves a new house and sorting "renting to own" to us in their old house. we will pay them the monthly mortgage and they'll kind of be like our landlords, although as soon as its paid off which wont be that many more years it will be our house. i love their house, it's a 2 story, our own yard, plenty of space for us and our 3 kids, excellent neighborhood with plenty of side-walks and playgrounds. community pool/playground/recreation area. its not "ritzy" but its a few steps up from the not so grand apartment we've been living in.
the problem is, im so holding off on telling my mother in law about this. and it's a sure thing, they've got the closing date and everything. hubby keeps wanting to tell her and i keep telling him to wait. she's got such a shitty attitude, i know she's going to say something like "her parents hand her everything on a silver platter". "spoiled brat" stuff like that.
what she will fail to realize is this is a light at the end of the tunnel for us. even though we're moving out of the city and into the country, it's much more developed and there's tons more job opportunites out there than here. not to mention, the daycares aren't as pricey so when our youngest turns 1, i may be able to afford putting our 2 and 1 year old in daycare when our 4 year old starts headstart in the upcoming fall. and even better, my parents will be in the same development, only 5 minutes away if that. they have helped us far more than she has, and we live 5 minutes from her now and she's basically useless. she never wants to visit or anything. so i see absolutely no cons about this, and we won't be far from her, about 25 minutes.
i just dont want to start a fight with her, or hear her nasty comments. i know i should not give a shit, but in the back of my mind i do. i hate being judged by her. her mind is so one-sided and she won't see all of the good coming out of this. hubby is excited and wants to tell her. he doesn't think she'll flip out.. but i know she will. how would you prepare for the shit to hit the fan?
