Wowwwww my MIL is too smart for her own good!

Posted by   + Show Post
MIL babysits for a few hours on Sunday nights so that my husband and I can go on a date night.
Dinner and a movie.

Dd is 9 months old.
She's bf and cosleeping.

Here's the thing...... my husband and I DON'T MIND cosleeping.
We enjoy it. And as soon as she is weened, around 1 and a half likely, she'll be in her toddler bed. The bed we are buying is for 15+ mos.

Well RIGHT when I walk through the fuuuucccckkkiinngg door to get my daughter, I get insulted.
RIGHT off the bat.
Always. Always always always.

I'm in a great mood. Had a great date. I'm happy.
I've worked my ass off all week being a good wife and Mom and doing everything I can to have a happy family.
And I'm always insulted by her.
Every time I see her, something I do isn't good enough.

She immediately starts in on me about how cosleeping is bad for my daughter because blah blah blah.

The thing is, I don't think sleeping separately is bad! I just don't do it.
I don't think formula is bad! Just don't do it.
I don't think other parents are bad for their decisions, I just don't do them!

Everyone is different. Why is her way always better.

She's always saying, "Well I never did anything weird like that....."
and then insulting me.

She has insulted my clothing.
She insults my relationship with her son.
She insults pumping/bfing.
She insults the food I feed my dd. I make her babyfood homemade, and my MIL says it isn't enough for her and the jarred food is healthier.
She insults me on everything.

Why can't I have a relationship where we get along and she appreciates what I do and doesn't want to undermine me?

I always wanted a MIL that I could hang out with and watch movies and shop with.
Will you ladies adopt me as your DIL? Haha.

Now make me laugh. ):
