StepMIL Vent. Ugh. *edit*

 So, my SMIL is an attention whore. She has babies for the hell of it. (Or so it seems) Anyway, that is a different post. This is just the most recent occurance of her attention-whoring.

     Memorial Day came along and I noticed just a few days before that her profile picture on Facebook was a coffee mug that said "Army Mom and Proud of it." Me, being a smartass asked "Is (oldest son) joining?" She responded that she got it when my Dh graduated basic training. Wtf. This lady is the same age as Dh's oldest sister. lol

     I mean, good for his dad (I guess) but in no way does Dh see her as the mother figure she tries to portray. It's fricken annoying.

Anyone else have an issue like this?

 

Oh, and btw, he graduated basic 8 years ago... lmao

 That's the thing though. She isn't proud of him. She put it up close to Memorial Day so people would know that she deserves some attention.
