All I can say is that I'm not her favorite person. Yet, there was a time when we had a close relationship but them it seemed to turned sour due to him always telling her about every fight and disagreement that we had, therefore I was mad out to be the bad person by him in her eyes. MY Mother does not have a really close relationship with her Mother in Law, and my mom always told me to keep a close distance. Whats your story?

I hate her. She is a crack whore, no kidding...she sells her body for crack. She was never in my bf's life. The only time she was in his life is when his parent's were actually married.They both did and still do crack. I hate them both and so does my bf. His dad has only seen our daughter once and his mother didn't even know I was pregnant. She found out I had her when she was a month old. She called once and I haven't heard from here since, not like I reallyc are to ehar from her though.

My daughter's father has never done anything positive for my daughter...just gone to jail numerous times for drugs and so therefore been in and out of her life, never helped financially but always wanted to be physically in her life (when he wasn't in jail) and I've tried to be the "nice" guy and not shut him out and go on the basis that I'm raising my daughter with good morals and good sense that she will be able to make her own decision about her father when she gets older, but his mom has never really liked or disliked me. We've only met a few times. She lives in Maryland and we've always lived in GA. My DD's dad and his mom were semi-close but they are not the best family to begin with so they don't see each other all that often, but she sends my daughter presents on her birthday and Christmas and cards for EVERY occasion and I send her pictures as often as I take them. I feel like she is just as much her granddaughter as she is my parent's granddaughter, you know?

My son's father doesn't have a very good relationship with his mother at all. We live in Iowa, she lives in Washington, she only comes back once a year. He doesn't really talk to her at all. I thought she was nice but I know his reasons why he doesn't like her and I understand. She hurt him a lot when she left his father and then up and moved to WA.

WOW, I am sorry to hear that.  I had a shaky relationship at first because she had the nerve to ask me how can she be sure Jalen is her grandson?  I was like listen, "We are gonna have this convo one time only as you are not the person I laid down with!  I am not some street chick, sleeping with any and everybody.  Your son knows this is his child and I know.  If someone wants to waste money for a DNA test, that's fine because I LOVE making people look like complete asses!"  After that she acted correct!  We have a great relationship now.  I think she was thinking about other things going on in her life at the time, like one daughter just had to have an abortion because she was being a little promiscuous.  Now we are one big happy family, me and my sons father just arent together but we are still close (no sex!!!!) LOL!!!

Leave me or Jalen a gift under our tree!!!

My X's family and I were close.  My X's grandmother especially and my X SIL. My XMIL were cool. After the divorce and going thru so much drama I found out that my XMIL was encouraging my X to divorce me and leave me alone because I was a headache...HE CHEATED ON ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Anyway,I lost repsect for her because I realized she obviously never instilled morals and respecting women in her sons when she was raising them. I found out she was talking a lot about me behind my back and very 2faced. My XSIL the same thing. Good thing she has a big mouth though because thats how I found out about my X cheating so many times...she told me!! HA! Now I dont talk to any of them. MY XSIL sometimes texts me, but thats it.


From my family to

yours.

If I never see the old harridan again, it will be too damn soon.

I was never good enough for her darling boy, who himself never felt appreciated by her. I was doing everything wrong, whatever I did. When I pandered to his needs/wants I should have challenged him, and when I challenged him I should have been pandering....

I just couldn't bloody win, and now she's lost her grandson because she wouldn't accept me.

Tough titty I say. He's my boy and I won't have him poisoned against me that way.

I don't have much of a relationship with her or anyone else in that family. I've sent pictures of my daughter, I've called, and I invited the family to her 1st birthday party. It's not that we don't get along, it's just that I don't think she (or the rest of them) are that concerned about my daughter.

I have not heard "Tough Titty" in like 15 years, lol!

Well, my relationship (as well as my son's) is non existent with his paternal "grandmother".  She had nine children and then her husband left after twenty years and the majority of her kids have a shi*load of kids so she acts as if that is the fault of  the grandchildren.  From my baby shower to my son's first bday, she was invited to everything and received every picture.  No response, not a phone call.  So I said Screw her....

There is no relationship with my son's paternal grandmother...she is not involved in his life.

My daughter's paternal grandmother visits occasionally and sends gifts.  I don't feel one way or the other about her.  I think she could do more (in terms of physical involvement) but that's just me.  She and I really have no relationship.
