Updated - in last post...MIL wants to baptize Katie now...OMG Thought I solved the MIL slobbering all over Katie but...nope sure didn't

My inlaws house today was a nightmare. DH's Mom is such an u-know-what. First I thought I took care of the slobbering all over Katie and kissing all over her -but I was wrong. She did it the whole time even though we both kept asking her not to. And our neice was following right along slobbering.

The MIL was making comments like "Oh the honeymoon is over" about my marriage and was whispering to my SIL about ME while I was right there!!! -DH and I both heard her so I wasnt imagining it.

She is all mad that we take Katie on the boat and has called both SILs and BIL to complain about that. She is all mad that we wont baptize Katie catholic - even though SHE doesnt even go to that church. When we got there Katie was sleeping and then she woke about 20 mins later and I had to feed her. I'm half way through the bottle and she says nastily to DH "am I EVER going to get to hold her?" I'm so disgusted. ANyway just wanted to complain (since I cant complain to DH)!!!

OMG I'm sorry - this is a long post...I just needed to vent about the

It sounds like we have ourselves another monster-in-law here.

When you told her about the saliva and the rash, what did she say??

Did you tell the niece too?

I think you seriously need to have a talk with this woman...either you or your husband...or both of you would be even better. She needs to be set straight.

Why is it when a baby is born, all these MIL's become nasty and think they know everything?

OH yeah we told them both a bunch of times...no kissing, she is breaking out from the oils and saliva, etc etc. Didn't work. I'm so annoyed. My SIL keeps coming in and trying to bite the baby's butt when I change her - seriously...dont bite my baby's butt (I know its a "cute" thing but NO you cant put your mouth on my baby). My BIL wants to nibble her toes...I mean come on. Keep your mouth off my baby.

She's always been a Chat Icon but now I wont tollerate it when it comes to my baby.

I can only imagine what she's saying about me now that we're gone. Chat Icon

I think it's time to get in touch with your inner B!tch DIL in you - and handle it. "No - you can't hold her because you wont' listen to us when we tell you not to kiss her like that."

As for the honeymoon comment, you're going to love your DH on a whole new level.

Chat Icon Chat Icon Chat Icon I know EXACTLY Where you are coming from! MIL is a SMOKER and doesn't wash her hands when she holds the baby!! GRRR....and then she kisses her!!!Chat Icon

I hate it....then one SIL is already trying to teach her NO NO NO and giving her tastes of things she shouldn't be having (ice cream...we're not sure if she is lactose intolerant!)

I am SO not looking forward to staying there during our visit to NY.

Continue to stand your ground....get mad and then when she tries to "whisper" a comment about you....say something about it. Like the honeymoon comment....you could have returned it with "The honeymoon never ended....that's why you have a granddaughter!"

What's her deal? Does she want your DH to go over with Katie and leave you home?

Lucky for me DH will always side with me!

I Have to say it looks like I am very Lucky. I Have a wonderful mother-in-law she has watched my Daughter since she was 3 months as I went back to work full time. At times it was rough but Honestly I needed to get over the fact that not everyone will do things exactly how I do them. It was sooo Hard but I'll tell you one thing now that my daughter is 1 1/2 and all over the freaking place ANYONE that can occupy her and keep her busy and happy I kiss the ground they walk on. HaHa!!

good for you for sticking up to her. I promise it does get better. Well they still do annoying things but as they get older it seems they can do less harm.

When Ryan was a few weeks old we got a call from BIL that my MIL had loicked herself in the bathroom for an hour crying because I wouldnt let the baby sleep with a blanket. Then whenever she would come over she would sneak in and put a blanket on him. Since she doesnt speak english well I could chew her out myself so that made it worse.

Now she just does things like bring whole milk over when she watches Ryan on Fridays. She thinks its terrible that we give him 1%. Since its one meal a week I dont care and its not worth a fight.

Re: Thought I solved the MIL slobbering all over Katie but...nope sure didn't

I know how you feel my mil questions me everytime I ask her to wash her hands.. Why is that such a ridiculous thing to ask?
What we have to learn is that our In laws are not our parents and our parents can get away with alot more then they can. (at least with me) It's hard I am having a hard time with it too

That is completely disrespectful to your beliefs. I know how I'd handle it if it were my MIL - it wouldn't be pretty.

I baptized both of my kids. My sister didn't baptize her children. Her MIL was upset about it. Sister & BIL held a pseudo-ceremony that they made up themselves with the four element, etc. They wanted to incorporate all religious beliefs. At one point, we had to go around the circle & say something profound Chat Icon. BIL's mom, stepped forward, made the sign of the cross on the baby's forehead & say "God Bless You."

No matter what she thinks she's not baptizing Katie. She's only blessing her if she puts holy water on her. The Catholic Church won't recognize it at all.

You know it's hard enough with a new baby - you don't need this cr@p.

O M G!!!! This woman is out of control. I feel if you don't say anything to this woman, she'll keep on with her bull$hit.

I would tell her that she will not be allowed to see the baby if she thinks she's baptizing her. I would also include that YOU'RE the mother and she needs to respect your decisions for your own child.

I also agree, but it should only be visible when you log in....like the relationship board.

OK that is so beyond wrong I don't even know what the word to describe it would be.
Honestly I would basically forbid her from seeing my DD until she learned to respect yours and DH wishes regarding everything.
My mom is quite christian but DH is agnostic and I don't practice any religion and even she hasn't given us grief about not baptizing.
You MIL needs to respect you and DH and your beliefs and how you choose to raise your children or she can hit the high road as far as I'm concerned.
