In the beginning my mother in law seemed so great but it changed so quickly and has been like walking on eggshells since. I had a child from a previous relationship and once I was pregnant she would constantly say how it's so much more special when it's the first grandchild on both sides. She is so opinionated, everything is about her and she loves to be waited on. She still babies her middle aged child. Ten years ago she marked an Oprah magazine article about a crazy daughter in law and said it reminded her of me. I was so angry reading that considering our entire relationship I've bent over backwards for this woman. She's said she wonders when I'm going to start looking older, always telling me I look tired, throwing a fit when things don't go her way. I deeply regret naming my child after this woman. We go to her home and we all sit there while she talks about herself the entire time. I don't care. It's gotten to the point I don't even talk anymore. There is no point, she's not listening but just waiting to talk. When my husband is away for work she will call just to ask how her son is. She isn't a very active grandmother and it's sad she never keeps her word when she tells them she's going to take them to do things. She's very flashy, very old but loves to show off materialistic things she owns. I absolutely dread going over there, my anxiety goes through the roof. I would never tell my husband not to speak or see her but I feel like every holiday for nearly twenty years it's been about her and her family. I have no idea where she gets this sense of entitlement either it makes me sick.
