How to keep mother in laws at arms length ?

Mine gets in my DH ear then the next thing I know everything I thought we agreed on ....we don't

She tries to tell our DD'S what to wear if we go somewhere,drives me crazy!

We used to get along really well,then she got really rude,made nasty comments towards my family.So I stopped talking to her.She moved 4 hours away but it hasn't stopped her.HELP ANY ADVICE without me being rude back towards her.I don't want my DD'S to see me act the same way she does.They already see how she acts.I want to be better than that.

Sorry if I didnt space my words right,or if I have run on sentences .I just need advice.Thanks

I would just confront her and tell her how you feel and if she doesn't listen then she can't be around your kids.

Mine is a meth headed mooch that comes around once in a blue moon. She is the biggest idiot loser I've have ever met.

I have many times told her how I feel.She doesn't seem to listen or she is always right.When I first meet her I was 17.She didn't like me ,then my DH father dies and we became close.It seems like these last few years though have been awful,pure hell ! She would email saying she was so sorry my mom didnt raise me better.She says some really hurtful things.Then she thinks everything is ok the next day .I dont get over stuff like that so quickly it was mean.She is always in my DH ear saying god knows what.I know this because when he is home we are happy and on the same page about raising our kids.Then he goes and visits his mom comes back and all of his way of thinking has changed and we fight.

That is a difficult situation. Have you tried getting your DH to talk to her? If that doesn't work then I seriously think you all need to distance yourselves from her. DH included. If he doesn't want to then I would leave. Not necessarily permanently but until he realizes what he's losing.

I should also mention we have been married for almost 16 years.You would think enough is enough.
