Now that mil had made up with ther daughter after a long spat, she repeats everything I tell her to her daughter! The daughter will see me and after saying hello will repeat word for word all the info I told mil. Then she will also have her daughter ask me if I am going back to help my mom with careegiving instead of mil asking me. I am so sick of her bs. We do not talk much on the phone anymore and I do not miss it, because sure enough whatever youtell her even if it is about her gay niece she will have her daughter asking me like I am on the stand on trial. What should I do?

Learned long ago to watch what we tell her very carefully. Even more so now that she is starting to show early signs of dementia, even what you do say to her often comes out like something from that old Telephone game.
My MIL talks to her daughters multiple times a day, the only contact we have with her is when DH calls her once a week. It is just the way things are, she is very close with her daughters and I for one am glad, means we do not have to be involved (their choice not ours) as things start to decline with my In-laws.
