What do you think of this?

My MIL is a demon (to be blunt), her sister however is a sweet lady and very friendly, a mother and MIL herself. When we must visit the inlaws its this branch of my DH's family I prefer to visit.

So I told my "Aunt-in-law"?? that I'm adopting her as my new official MIL and my DH agreed that she was always more of a mom to him than his own mom was. Of course we aren't telling his real mom, but I thought it was cute if not a bit realistic, too.

  • Good plan! I wish I had that option, but most of my MIL's siblings are as dysfunctional and unpleasant as she is!
