Has anyone else been in the situation where your MIL. Looks after you child to enable you to work but wont do anything you ask for example your 2 year old is still on the bottle all day long, when you got them on to proper foods like you eat she has put them back onto those horrible jars then tells you its your fault and keeps putting your 2 year old into a play pen ( i continously call it the cage) grr this gets to me every day ive been back at work which has been since my DD was 7months old! Im now currently pregnant again and am literally counting down the days til i leave due to fact i WILL NOT be going back to work to ensure this dosent happen again but im worried my DH will still get her involved in every little thing.... for example im looking into getting my daughter into pre school when she turns 3 for a couple hours a week but because his mummy has said not to other wise she wont ever look after the children (which suits me fine) he says im being lazy and wanting to dump her onto someone else so that i dont have to look after two children. Huh if i didnt want to look after 2 children would i be pregnant again... umm hell no!!!

She sounds like the control freak my MIL was.. Ok, so MIL wont babysit if you put the child in pre kindergarten? Is this happening before or after you have the baby? if its after and your going to become a SAHM.. then who cares, do it anyway.. Actually it is better for your DD to go to pre kindergarten, she learn social skills and gets a head up on schooling.. The child is in school just a couple of hours a week?  It doesn't sound like anyone realize it  really more work on you.. You have to get both kids dressed, get both in the car, if you have to walk DD to class, get both children out of the car.. turn around and do it all over again..  Once the baby is here and about six weeks old.. Leave them both with dad for a DAY  with a honey do list and see if he don't change his mind on the subject..

I just got to the point with my DH's family  when giving unwated advice, 'I will take it under advisement" translation, I am NOT listening..

She should have NO say in how you raise your child.  If you think pre-school is best, her opinion doesn't matter at all.

i HATE my MIL with a passion. that bitch can rot in hell before she ever sees me kids again!! she lied about my daughter's dr office saying they were going to call social services on me since she wasn't gaining weight (said a nurse told her this) she has NO access to their records!!! DH believed it, kept it from me for several days, we finally get into an argument and he threw it in my face. i called his mother, bitched her out, immediately scheduled an appt with the dr who owned the practice and about killed DH for that. told MIL to go to hell and DH if she ever stepped foot near my kids again i would call the cops on her and beat him with a baseball bat until he was out of my house! she's very vindictive and spiteful as is he. he got it honest.

 If she wasn't trying to control things with your kids it would be something else.after 16 years I can now tolerate my mil she tried so hard to stop my relationship with her son ( they are greek and wanted a greek dil) trying to marry him off to other women and even going to Greece and refusing t come back, she tought this woul stop us from getting married well we just went and did it anyway. Thankfully my husband stand up to her.

I've been married twice and have never had a mother in law. So I have no clue how I would react or handle that.
