I know I've posted this before about favoritism but today I've just had it. She called me again to brag about my niece and how she was babysitting. I'm at work and my phone was cutting out and I don't have gold service so I just hung up. I debated for a bit and then sent this message


And I don't know what the deal is with favoritism but you don't have to call me daily to brag about aspen or tell me how you babysit everyday and how awesome that is when you can't even be bothered to watch ours one day for our babysitter to go to the doctor. I don't mean that rude but it kinda hurts their feelings that they are always left out and I'm tired of hearing about it.

Personally I wouldn't have done it.  I'd just slowly back away from her and not even bother trying to push the kids on her.  She doesn't want to watch them or be around them, then let it go.  It's only stressing you out.  Consider her not an option anymore.

Good luck, I wish I had advice for you but I'm knee deep in some horrible in law troubles myself.

My mil is the same way. I can't stand her so we limit the times we see her to 2 time a year.

Favortisim sucks but you can't change them. My husbands parents favor their daughter out of their 3 children. It's always been like that and my husband and his brother just don't even try to compete with her anymore

Eh, it's better than holding those feelings in. She probably would have started a shit storm of drama no matter how you worded it, that doesn't mean her behavior didn't mean to be addressed. I bet she won't call you bragging any more ;)

It's funny I posted the problem last week and everyone said I should say something.
