my mother, in fact, spoiled my kid.<br />
my mother-in-law was ridiculously strict about very stupid things.<br />
theyr'e both gone, and he turned out fine anyway ;)
My motherinlaw, awesome lady, forever, always. Love that woman.
Mothers-in-law don't make amends.. She is a grandparent and will demand her rights as one. She may be the one that ends up with your kids if you're out of the picture... Wicked ladies can stay too far at times...
Dont fight her. Use the kids for profit ?
I went through this with mine. The truth is, it took almost a week to remind my little girl that she didn't get everything she wanted when she wanted it when she returned home from an overnight with mamaws. Lol I would literally say it too, I would say, mamaws gives you what you want when you want it. But you're home now, and mommy doesn't do that. I always explained to mine why they could not have or could not do something though. I felt it was important to respect children, they're logical creatures for the most part, and when they weren't, they got a time out lol. <br />
While having mamaws spoil her rotten was a headache for me, I thought it was good for her to have variety and she looked forward to seeing her mamaws so much, it was worth it I think. That's kind of what grandparents do, make visiting them a real treat, especially since the normal day to day isn't like that for them. So in moderation I think it's ok ;)
