do you let how you feel about your MIL affect how/when she sees your child?

my friend said she could never keep her son from his gma no matter how she felt about her....call me a bitch but i have NO problem not letting her see my baby, ONLY when i am there will she be around my child. , not letting her in the delivery room, and not inviting her to the shower. thats just me though.

My boyfriends mother sees my son just about everyday. She watches him for us while we work.

my g-ma didn't find out I was preggo until 8 months! She wanted to be here when I had dd but I didn't know how I would take it so I said no, She called while I was in labor and my dh told ehr to come, she drove 4 hours to see us, she did miss the dilivery I gave birth at 12:30AM and she got in about 3AM I was totally pooped and she came by the next morning! It was really sweet and she is really happy for us! She raised me and my sister, so it means more to her than her other g-kids. But It was okay. I still love her from a distance and will call her occasionally. but it's okay, I would never let her hold her with out either me or dh there and she'll never watch my baby, though she lives in another state so it's really not an option, but I do love her from a distance!


I think it's personal dicision and you have the right to that.

My mother in law and I get along good and she watches our son for us whenever we need her too.

Both of our moms work pretty close to our house. My mom stops by everyday no matter what, most the time she even brings dinner and cooks. His mom NEVER comes over, ever! I will not go out of my way so she can she her grandchild or her son. If she really cared to see either one of them, she would drive her ass over here like my mom does.
