Re: mother in law GRRRR
I don't think you are over reacting at all. I think that her not telling you and esp expecting you to pay for it shows a lack of respect on her part. The only thing i mind wonder is if she didn't tell you because of the reaction she may get? i don't know what kind of relationship you guys have together, but maybe she was avoiding a fight? As far as everything else, it's hard, you don't want to fight, but yet you don't want her walking all over you, especially as a mother. Try to sit down with her and talk to her and let her know that there are certin things you like done your way when it comes to the baby. If she's like my mother in law she'll either ignore you or comment on it every chance she gets (my sil doesn't let her smoke around her baby, which she shouldn't and should know better, but still she has to be reminded and constantly makes comments like i can't smoke cause the baby is so pure etc...she basicly makes fun of the fact that my sil doens't want her baby smoked around). All i can suggest is get out of her house asap...there isn't much you can do while living with her, you can't fight too much over it because it'll just create stress for everybody, try to make the most out of it and if possible avoid her at all costs. This is assuming she isn't willing to talk to you to try and improve your relationship. Also, what does your husband do? does he stand up for you? would he be willing to talk to his mother on your behalf? Summer is here, just spend a lot of time walking, going to the park, to the beach, or wherever, focus on your baby and all the good things in your life right now.
