  • YOU do not get it to stop with out looking like a bitch.

    He is a grown man... HE needs to talk to his parents and tell them that he is a husband and father and he has responsibilities at home. HE needs to do this and keep you 100% out of it.

  • Wow, that's a tough one. Sounds like they don't know word "boundaries". The only person that can make any changes to this is your husband. GL

  • Maybe try talking to your husband about it. I mean, he's a grown man, they shouldn't need him like that... that's insane.

  • Maybe you need to sit hubby down and set up a time for them to call if they need something one day a week when he will spend one hour helping or answering calls. Tell them this is family time and point to the day when they are to call set an hour for each parent and move on.

  • I know exactly how you feel. Dh had his first day off yesterday since Easter and his parents were here almost all day, then invited themselves over for dinner.... Your husband needs to learn the word no. My dh finally told his parents yesterday after dinner that we ( our kids and me and dh) were going out for ice cream, and that we would see them later. When his mom asked where we were going he told her, we are going to Maggie moos, but reiterated that is was just US. make sure you and dh are on the same page. Make sure he knows that it really bothers you, and you don't like that his parents take priority over your family. Good luck mama!!!

  • This is up to your dh, not you. You need to talk to him & tell him how it bothers you that you guys don't get to spend time together that much anymore. You shouldn't have to a say a word to your inlaws, its up to him. Honestly, why isn't it bothering him that he isn't spending that much time with you anymore ?? I'd be asking him that question as well. Good luck, hun.
