I don't think you were wrong.

I do think you need to use spell check though.

This is a mess. It is sad you could not just write sentences.  I do not blame you for being upset with your mother.

Mostly you are correct, her over use of the ellipsis to separate her subject is, to me anyways, even more annoying.  


Now OP, I see your point, painfully after much mental translation, I am assuming you have had issues with your mother in the past.  To me this sounds as if your mother is extremely arachnophobic, and insanely controlling.  I would wager you did the right thing, my suggestion is to have your husband double and triple check local laws and regulations on keeping exotic pets (yes, some spiders DO qualify as exotic pets).  Also having a handlers license might help if some are poisonous and/or venomous.

CPS won't take your kid from you for getting a legal pet from a pet store and keeping it in a proper habitat, so your mother is a moron to begin with. Anyone who threatens to call CPS or try to take your kids from you has no business being in your life, so cutting ties is probably the smartest choice you could make in that situation.

Calling CPS over spiders?  *headdesk*

I could see calling CPS if your house was infested with black widows or something, but spiders and scorpions that are properly contained?  Your mom sounds like a nutbar.
