My MIL is a control freak. She has never liked me bc I don't need her (as in her money or her help). She has told people my oldest child isn't her sons. She has called my youngest "retarded". Yesterday we got into it when she called me a horrible cruel mother. Mind you I have never abused my children physicially, mentally, or emotionally. I have had case managers in my home bc of my youngest I think if I was so horrible I wouldn't even have my children. Well, I went off about everything she has been saying when she called me a "nigger" lover and informed me all I *ucked in highschool was "niggers". This coming from a woman who asked her children when they were young what they thought of **** being their new daddy (he was her sisters husband). Yes, the woman who wants to throw stones at my sex life (which her accusations are lies but to me thats not important my sex life is none of her business) had an affair and planned to divorce her childrens father (she didn't bc both parties of the other couple died-and shes still married to the father of her children and yes he knows all this) and marry her sisters husband. Well, when I laughed at her for her accusations and told her that was funny coming from the woman who *ucked her sisters husband she came at me with her hand raised. My husband pushed her away before she got to me. I wanted her to smack me, I knew what she was going to do but it would have been the worst mistake of her life. I came home and DH and I were talking about it all when a family member showed up and told us that she's been telling people I'm sleeping with "niggers" and have been sense before DH and I got married (and she's been telling the family this sense before DH and I got married).
I thought a lot of my MIL and my boys love her very much. I have no idea how I should handle this and am wondering if the best thing for my kids is to keep her away from them. My youngest's case manager suggested I do that bc with her telling people all of these things she worries what she may say in front of them when I am not around. What would you do??
