See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
She is wicked, evil, self-centered, conniving and deceitful. She is my mother in law and she hates me and my kids. I have been ignored, disrespected, and treated like shit by my mother in law for years and I'm sick of it! My MIL is a widow and my husband is an only child. My MIL is OBSESSED with her son. She wants nothing to do with me and the kids, only with her son and it's always been like that. She will call our house, I'll answer the phone and she will immediately ask to speak with her son. She never asks how me or the kids are doing. She will show up at our house and only want to talk and see her son. She will call our house only when my husband is home from work, never during the day when He's at work and I'm the only one home. She will call him on his cell phone when he's at work and she knows damn well that he is not supposed to get calls when he's working unless it's an emergency. Every chance she gets, she wants to keep my husband to herself. If he goes to her house to fix something for her, she will seriously "keep" him there for hours! If we try to help her and be there for her, it's all about her son and me and the kids are disregarded. She has never been a grandma to our kids. She never spends time with them, they never receive birthday presents or Christmas presents from her. It's like they don't even have a grandma. It's really sad. Whenever we're with her, she always wants to be the center of attention. She will dictate how long we stay at her house and how long my husband stays on the phone with her which is usually a couple of hours everytime she calls. If we don't answer the phone when she calls, she will leave mean and vulgar messages on our voice mail. When we go to her house, she will take my husband to the back of the house and want to talk to him in private. It pisses me off! She puts guilt trips on him because she lives alone. She wants to move in with us but I don't want her controlling ass living with us! I have done everything I could to keep the piece throughout the years. I have bit my tongue for too long. I have tried to treat her with respect because she's my Husband's mom and I don't want to cause friction or get between their relationship. I have been dealing with her shit for way too long! I don't know what to do anymore. My husband has absolutely no backbone and he doesn't stick up for me. My husband has said that he loves his mother, but he also HATES her.
