  • my mom! I lived with her for the first year and a half of my son's life so it seemed like I could do nothing right as a mother. When it comes to kids and stuff, my mother in law, was in the same boat I am so she's always super supportive and is always telling me how great of a job I'm doing.

  • My mom...she is the biggest buttinginer I have ever met. (Like my new word that I made up?) She tries, but I have laid down the law and told her to butt out enough that she doesn't do it as much anymore.

  • My mother in law. I can tell her a billion times to get out of our business, but that just makes me the "bad guy" since DH rarely backs me up.

  • I never met my MIL (she died like 7 years before I met DH), so between those, my mother. But, FIL tries to butt in more...through MY mom. It's weird.
