Dont get me wrong my MIL is good sometimes. We do also see her and cook her a 3 course dinner at least every other week, and were over loads to help her when she broke her wrist before xmas.
Hubby has also just fixed her computer which she had wrecked,
I actually see far more of my MIL than I get to see of my own mother as my MIL is closer in distance to me
She does give us the challenge of feeding our kids copious amounts of chocolate which we disagree with (we have requested she doesnt) , and even the boys agree they would prefer a penny for their money box, as they are brought up by both us and preschool with the knowledge that certain things are not healthy for you in large amounts. I have to say preschool hammer this but I dont think its a bad thing.
I have also been told in an hour of need (my car back window smashed in day before holiday) that no she cant help and I should no way phone hubby. I disagreed on this one and thought he would at least like to know that "houston we have a problem"
when she is good she can be very good but when she is bad she is horrid, and whiny and persistent and all woe is me.
thankfully we managed to have a nice candle lit dinner for two in peace tonight, and hubby was well impressed with his wifes abilities at recreating Heston Bluementhal recipies.
Oh and she is coming to dinner on friday and I have made enough of the starter and the dessert so that she can sample some of the menu we had too.
Sometimes us daughter in laws do like a little break from our mother in laws to nurture our relationships with the husbands that they created
