    My Granddaughter....

    My son married his wife a year and a half ago, and they recently became parents to my first grandchild, a girl! (which is very cool since I am only the mother of boys). To top it off, my new granddaughter was born on my birthday! We drove the next day to meet the next baby, and...

    Why Is It Always The Mother-in-law's Fault?

    Everywhere I search on the web, I see sites where MIL's can vent, but always a DIL has to interject her nasty comments. I am just looking for a site where I can explain my DIL's narcissistic and controling behaviors and to seek some type of understanding and commiseration from...

    And This Is Just The Beginning!

    I knew I was in trouble when my future daughter in law bought me my dress for her wedding. She paid 50 bucks for it on Amazon. It was a size 14 (Im a size 8) and looked like something a nun would wear in the 1940's. She would be wearing a $10,000.00 Vera Wang, her mother, an $800...

    I Win The Daughter-in-law-from-hell Award.

    My DIL has actually said these words to me: "You are selfish, inflexible, and you do not consider other people's feelings." "I know you had a difficult childhood, so I would have thought that you would have made a better effort". "Yeah, lets talk about your other kids..." She...

    I sincerely do not feel

    that the “blame” should be placed on the DIL, or any “blame” towards not one person. Look, life happens, family happens. As a mother of three, I have found that YOU cannot choose who your children fall into love with. More importantly, it is not a reflection of your...

    My other children have given up trying to have a relationship with my son, primarily because of the DIL. They do blame my son for the actions of his wife. They hate how he allows her to treat me. The trouble is, I'm the only one who tries to address these problems. I cannot say...

    Estranged From Son & Dil

    Every since my son met his now wife she has not tried to become part of our family. It appears it's been her goal to create "their" family to the exclusion of us. That would be fine if she did the same with HER parents and family. But NO - they are great and we're nothing...
