How's your relationship with your childs father's Mother?

Posted by   + Show Post
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?

Quoting WiksWife:

The first thing Michelle (Travis' fathers mom) ever said to me was "I dont want you dating my son." How terrible is that????? I was the only one who went on her bizarre exscursions with her (not her kids or hubby) When Trav was about 6 months old, I was feeding him his lunch and she looked at him, and then looked at me and said "You're a horrible mother, you should have had an abortion!" WHO SAYS THAT WHILE LOOKIN AT THEIR GRANDCHILD?!!! Then, when trav was 3 months old, Jeff and I broke up. When he was 15 months old I told that family they couldnt see him anymore. When I went to pick him up from their house, he looked like he was drugged!! Non-resonsive and emotionless. She told me I was going to kill him if I gave him gripe water (fennel seed and ginger in a liquid form) The women was crazy. SO, after I told them theye couldnt see Trav, she wrote me a 3 pg letter about how i was a lying decietful little whore and I wanted them for their money (THEY WERE GOING THRU BANKRUPTCY) then she stated that b/c i was such a whore she didnt even think that Trav was his!! The very last paragraph she BEGGED me to let her see Travis!!! CRAZY!! I  found out in May that she had pancreatic cancer. That was when his father decided to walk out on Travis for good. I decided that if Michelle was ever on her death bed, she could see him onelast time. Karen, Jeff's sister e-mailed me on Nov. 3rd askin me to let Michelle see him. I didn't know untill 2 weeks later. Michelle died Nov. 7th. She never got to see him, since he was 15 month old. I feel bad.....But if she wasn't so crazy, she wouldnt have lost him in the first place. Now Jeff thinks I knew about Karen's email before hand, and I was being a b**** and just ignored it, I swore to them I would have let her see him.

Now thats just wrong, When she told you that about your son, the abortion what did you say to her.

I've only met my ex-MIL (son's grandma) a couple times and I have spoken to her once since Ex and I divorced over 5 years ago....although she did just OUT OF THE BLUE send my son a Christmas gift today!

I am pretty close with my daughter's grandparents....they help out with watching my daughter sometimes and have always been super nice and accepting of me.  My daughter's grandma even goes on and on about what a moran she thinks her son is on a regular basis!  They have been way more helpful and involved then my daughter's dad yeah I really appreciate them!

My daughter's "Grandmother" and I do not talk.  I have not spoken with anyone in his family since I left him for good a week before I had my daughter.  I haven't liked his mother pretty much from day one.  She always put my ex down and it was unnecessary (he's not a good guy, but to be cut down by your own mother is horrible no matter who you are).  She didn't like me either, but that was because I wouldn't kiss her ass and act like she was my own mother.  I'm sorry, but I have a mother who I have a great relationship with, I don't need a second one who cuts down the person I love (at the time anyway).  After I left him she sent me an email saying not to communicate with her at all unless I'm going to provide her pictures of her grandbaby and willing to "claim" her as the same.  I'm sorry, I don't want my daughter around her.  My ex beat me up when I was 5 months pregnant and she was downstairs from our apartment and he was throwing me down on the ground and a tv fell to the floor, a microwave was thrown across the kitchen and she claimed that she didn't hear anything.  BULL SH_T!!!!  The day after I went to get my things from the apartment, while he was in jail and she tried to make me feel guilty that I went to the hospital and in turn the cops got involved and eventually he was arrested for domestic abuse, because she wouldn't have anyone to rent the apartment and she would have to sell her house, wah wah wah.  Sorry, just thinking about it makes me flume!  So, no I have no relationship with my daughter's father's mother and I never plan on it.  My daughter has one set of grandparents and three sets of great grandparents on my side, so she gets more than enough love!

We are very close she really likes me. Sometimes to the annoying point. She talks bad about him and tells me she wants me to do better. I am not sure i like being so close to her though it is weird and i feel stuck in the middle and like i have 2 mom's. She does a lot for her grandson she spent a lot of money on him for Christmas and bought me some gifts from my son. If he complains about me she sides with me. Her daughter so his sister i am not as close to i think she doesn't like me talking to her as much as i do. She tells me everything and some i don't want to know. I told him this morning this is his family and he needs to be around them to cause i always get stuck visiting with her cause my son is small. He is real jack*** so i don't know why i am talking to his family.

Ugh!  Do we have to go there?  ;P
She has never liked me and never missed a chane to tell me so.  Now I think she's afraid I won't bring the kids (particualrly our youngest - his biological) around.  Like I would rob them of that.  I would only ever take the kids away if his family posed a threat, which they do not.

Katie's Grandparents as well as ALL of the other  family members from his side decided the minute they found out that I was pregnant that they wanted nothing to do with him anymore as well as our child, his father coming down to say "you can mess around with someone thats white but to have a child with her is a different story" So there Not only did he loose his family the day he told them I was pregnant but he lost his baby's mother and his little girl. He doesnt want anything to do with us. and let me tell you having a "High-risk pregnancy" and wanting help from him even though I don't want him.... its Hard to be a single mom but I will do anything for our Daughter. Just not be with him.

I have the best relationship with my baby's dad's mother.  I've never met her and I doubt I ever will.  Neither her or her son have decided to be in my child's life and I'm actually pretty grateful for that.
