1 Bump

Why do MIL's think they know everything?

I feel like she thinks her way is better. And it's driving me crazy. I'm trying to be patient.

  • Yeah but think about when u will be a mil and unless she is a psycho like my ex mil, try to cut her some slack.

  • Use the ideas from her that you like and ignore the rest. Most of us do think our way is best!

  • It's always worse when you have thier grandchild. When my hubby and I had our first together (my 2nd) My MIL thought as if i was a new mom with no experience at all. I put up with it for a while but finally i just said "Hey.. this ain't my first rodeo yah know... I know how to do this. Just chill and let me worry about this stuff"
    SHe relaxed after that. She's still a nosey B*tch and a total pain in my ass... but not as bad as before.
