My mil has been living with us for 6 months. She has been miserable the entire time she has been here. She hates everything! She makes our dd cry just because she thinks she is doing something wrong to make her grandma unhappy! Needless to say me and dh have gone the rounds a time or two about his mother! The latest reason he has given me for allowing her to remain here for so long is this...she took care of me and did so much for me I just owe her to take care of her. Well, this is completely a different tune he is singing now! She only worked when she wanted something for herself. My dh went to work really young, he gave his money to pitch in for the household needs. He even worked to help pay for his younger brothers college education. He bought his mothers clothes, he even bought the diamond ring she wore as her wedding ring. Which she has since lost, I think pawned! They lived in a tiny shack in a gang infested area. They would get woke up by the police letting them know a murder had taken place in their backyard. This was still the case until he moved out at 27 yrs. old when we got married. Maybe I am just being crabby but really, a parents responsibility is to take care of the kids not put them to work as soon as they can! I think my dh is enabling her and her entitled attitude! Especially now that he wants to buy her a place to live! I do not mind helping others when they are willing to put forth the effort to help themselves.
I seriously can not wait for this chapter to be over? When the day comes that mil is on a plane back to Cali I am throwing a PARTY!
