Quoting KBhooper:" Yea my MIL is a piece of work seriously!!! You would have to know this woman to understand how bad it ... [snip!] ... I.just don't know the right way to tell them without hurting there feelings I think its not going to be a "light" subject"
My MIL isn't really the issue, it's my FIL who is my biggest problem. They ended up not coming to visit at all (I gave birth in VA and they lived in TX), but came a few weeks after LO was born. My FIL have been through a lot of crap and it's been hard because I truly want nothing to do with him, but I've sucked it up for DH because I know he loves his father dearly. I've slowly been standing my ground over the past 3 years, but recently just said screw it. At some point you'll just have to realize what works best for you and your family (DH, soon to be LO, and yourself) and not worry about all of the outsiders. Best of luck to you!
