  • When my hub was first deployed, some nosey bitch turned me in to whatever CPS is called around here saying I was abusing the kids. (Only thing I can think of is I had gone to a party, kids were acting up, and I made them sit down.) My MIL went off on my husband, saying how I was a horrible mother for having CPS called on me, and that he should divorce me.

    Then, somewhere down the line during ANOTHER deployment, she got it in her head how I was a terrible mother, that I only married him for his money, and that, again, he should divorce me. That's when hub put his foot down and told her straight out "If you EVER speak like that again about MY WIFE, you will NEVER see your grandkids again!"

    She's been sweet as pie to me ever since.

  • Nope but she has implied it. She would say that I don't feed my kid and that he would always be dirty because he wouldn't be clean. She hated me so there's alot more things she called me other than a bad mom.

  • She hasn't used the exact wording but she once bought me an entire set of parenting books. She also made some uncalled for comments when I had to take one of the kids to the ER for an injury. Something along the lines of I had better watch it because that kind of thing could be reported. She is rarely at our place but when she is, I don't care how clean the house may be, she will comment on what isn't done. I don't let it get to me though. IMO every child she raised could use some counseling, I guess she should have invested in a good set of parenting books for herself.

  • I'm a bad mom according to my MIL...
    let me list some of the reasons...

    1) I don't want to be a SAHM
    2) I say things like "if you do that again, I'll rip your arms off and beat you with them".
    3) because I'm not her.

  • Oh, I'm a bad mom because I AM a SAHM! My MIL thought I should have gotten a job when hub and I was first married. Yeah, like anyone would want to hire a woman who was sick 24/7? Right.

  • My MIL is my angle!!!

    My mother on the other hand,doesn't always think before she speaks and we have both said very hurtful things to each other.
