MIL!!!

So my parents in law are here visiting. It's day 5 and my MIL is driving me insane. She is cleaning everything in sight, making OUR bed, putting crap in OUR room away, coming in whenever she so feels like (because  I "might need her help")... On top of that Sebastian has a heat rash, because she apparently keeps covering him with a blanket even though I have specifically said not to do so about a hundred times. I'm pissed at DH, because he saw her doing it while I was at work yesterday and didn't do anything about it. On top of that he's been acting like his dad, expecting his mom to do anything and everything around the house and just sits there and watches TV when he gets home. Back to MIL, I had to tell her off about bathing the baby last night, because this is something that DH and I do together. She has been asking that we move Sebastian's bed to her room so we can rest. WTF??? Now, I am thankful that she is here to take care of DS for awhile and I don't know what we would have done if it wasn't so, but goddamn it,  I need my freaking space when I get home. I leave at 7am and get home at 5 pm, that should be enough baby time for her, right? I can't believe it's been less than a week and im going crazy already... What do I do?

I understand. My Mom cleaned my house for me when she watched the kids for dh and I on our date night and OMG I hate it when she cleans because she does it wrong. First of all she did all my DD1's chores that I told DD to do when I left.She unloaded the dirty dishes in the dishwasher and when she put the dishes in the sink in she didnt rinse them off. Then she over loads are washing machine stuffing it until you can't fit in anything else and uses 3x the soap you need to (I buy the ultra concentrated). I have to lock my bedroom door if I ever leave her in my house and I am not there because she has know problem going in there without an invitation and the last time she did that she put all my expensive lingerie that needs to be hand washed with wool light in the washer and dryer. And I think she found my "special drawer" in the bathroom, lol. 

So yes I understand, I hate people cleaning my house! Unfortunelty I don't have any advice because it feels so rude to say anything when you should "feel grateful". 

I would put my foot down about the baby though. Your the mother and you know whats best and are the only person who will speak for him.

How long are they staying with you?

I would start locking your bedroom door though when your gone. At least you will have that sanity.

LOL, I thought about leaving the special toys and lubes out on the bed, so hopefully she gets the message.  My FIL is leaving in less than a month, but she'll be here babysitting through June. Although if it gets too bad I have no problem buying her an early return ticket, even if she never speaks to me again. The sanity of my kids and my own are more important ;)

I would not be ok with her going in my room at all. Yep, go leave dildos, strap ons, and gay porn allover your bed. That would fix it.

LOL, I can also make sure it's male gay porn, so she can have a nice private conversation with DH...
