Mother-in-laws!! What you gonna do?

So dh took the kids to see his parents today and I stayed home to have some down time. Tonight his mom calls to talk to me. She says my 4 year old and my 2 year old are too little. I need to start feeding them better. The 4 year old is 48lbs and 2 year old is 26lbs. They are both on the tall side for their age. Dh has a very slim muscular build and they both are clearly going to take after him. All I could tell her was okay! Why do mils do things like this?

  • You did good by just saying ok even though you wanted to tell her off like mind your own business lady bc you know your babies eat and that's all that matters. Next time just make even shorter if you short and sweet even though you know otherwise. Agree with her just to get her off your back.

  • Beause some are meddling ole bitches who just think they are the only ones who ever raised children, and they know IT ALL. I use to just listen say yes and hang up or shut the door after she left and do what ever the hell I wanted with MY KIDS. Maybe try doing the same with yours. Good Luck.

  • This is second question I have seen so far about MILS! My MIL would never say or do anything like that! She is one of the most amazing women I have ever met...I feel so bad when I hear about how other ppl's MILS are! Makes me very glad I married into the right family.

  • What makes it so bad is that these 2 never stop eating! They are always asking for something.

  • I would've told her to mind her own business and that the kids dr thinks they are perfect :) , so until she has a degree to back that up you will not be taking her advice..
