I am starting to think MIL..

Only cares about her children when they are babies. She has them, dotes on them for a year or two, and then gets bored with them.
She is almost 50 with 9 children. She was complaining about her empty nest. She still has 3 children under 18. The youngest is only 4. She went through 6 miscarriages to conceive the baby she is currently pregnant with.
I thought something was really off when she criticized me for not EBF, but then started snaking her 3-year-old around for acting like a 3-year-pld.
After they reach a certain age she just uses the kids for child care.
Df had 11 step dads, and she stayed with a lot of them knowing they were abusive to her older kids. She would drive around drunk with them in the car to visit her boyfriends. She doesn't do that anymore, luckily.
It's like she has to have a baby. Is this a thing?

Almost 50 and pregnant? Wow.

I guess it probably is a thing. I feel bad for the older kids. What is she going to do when she can't have any more?

Sounds like some type of disorder.
That's terrible for those children :(

If my mil could she would be having babies just for the "fun" of it. And that's scary because she is/was a horrible mother.
