My DH and I have decided that when our girls are born, we don't want any pictures posted on FB or any other social networking website.. I have made it clear to MY family and they understand just fine.. He just 'broke the news' to his mom and she's having a freaking bird about it saying "well why not? I should be able to do what I want..afterall, they are my granddaughters..blah blah blah." He didn't come off as an a-hole, he just said "look mom, this is what we've decided and would appreciate it if you could understand..we want to be more traditional and send out birth announcements instead of blasting it all over the internet."
I think that's pretty fair if you ask me. They're OUR kids and this is what WE want as PARENTS..
I'm so frustrated and fed up with her antics and how everything has to be about her and now is saying that she won't be here when our girls are born because she doesn't feel that it's right... Ugh.. What did I get myself into
Anyone else have issues similar with their MIL ?? Or a MIL who just won't back off ??
Welp, it's official. My MIL is out to make both DH and my life miserable. While DH was having a snooze earlier, she called..so of course, not wanting to wake him, I answered..
Now, before I go into any details, here's a question: when someone calls your house, how do they react when you answer the phone? Do they start with a "Hi. Hello. How are you?" or are they rude and demand to put "so & so" on the phone??
The 5 seconds I was on the phone with her went exactly like this:
MIL: Yeah..hi..is uh..MY son there..?
Sorry. That shit doesn't fly with me. Just because we had a spat, does NOT give her the right to call MY house and pretend like she doesn't know who in God's name I am :@
I. Am. Furious. Plain and simple.
Told DH, after I had to wake the poor guy up, he was just as mad.
Ok. The whole reason I started ranting..again.. wasn't just because of the way she talked to me, but because of what she said to DH. All because she STILL can't get her head out of her ass, she decided to take it out on him and tell him that she will not be present for the birth of our twins in 2 weeks because she "does not want to deal with my family." Uh.. What the hell ? Needless to say, stress and drama seem to follow me no matter where I go. Still unsure what to do..or if I should even bother with Elvira from here on out
