My Daughter In Law Is a Manipulating Mental Case
I hate my daughter in law. And so does my son. I don't know why he married her in the first place and neither does he, but they have a 4 year old and twin boys 1 1/2 years old now and he won't leave them with her because he doesn't want anyone else to raise his boys. Personally, i don't think there is anyone out there that would buy into her after they spoke to her for 5 minutes, but he has concerns.
She is an executive in publishing and barely spends any time with the children. Her mother lives in the house with them and is the full time babysitter. she meddles in their lives on a daily basis and between the three adults in that house, none of them get along.
My daughter in law micro manages everyone in the family. If we come for a visit, we have duties to perform. It's never a nice trip, we live out of state and dread coming to their house because she insists that we stay with them and that is a problem. it's like being a servant because she is so "overwhelmed" with her children and job that everyone else has to pick up the slack. My son also works, cleans the house, cooks dinner, picks her up at the station, drives her to the station in the morning before he goes to work and is totally in charge of their 4 year old that already has problems.
Her mother, is in charge of the twins and for 2 cents, I'd call CPS on her.
My daughter in law is the kind of person, that manipulates people and she isn't good at it. You kind of feel sorry for her efforts, but I tend to go along with her for my son's sake. She will call me up and ask my opinion about her oldest boy and the problems that he has in and out of school. I worked 20 years as a social worker for a special ed program so she asks me what i think about certain issues, and when I tell her my opinions, she gets bent out of shape, looks up something on google or asks someone else and them tells me i don't know what I am talking about. That is the least of it. She's a bully, and she makes comments to my daughter about how to raise her little boy that are uncalled for and obnoxious.
the list is a mile long, and we have had our differences and did not talk for a while several times, but this weekend, I came up to be there for her 4 year old's birthday party with my daughter and her little boy, I might add, she has never come to see us in Florida with the kids, not once, so we always have to travel there to see them.. This time, we swayed from the plans that she made for us, came to the party and was snubbed by her, she ignored us like we werent there and we left after several hours of no response from her with pleasant conversation. I called my son to invite him to bring the boys to the hotel we were at for a swim and he returned the call with venom and lies that she claimed we had done to her and ruined the party. I finally said to him after explaining there was a misunderstanding of her needs, he wasn't hearing anything, that I said to him so I responded with, and I quote.." I will never speak to that #$%^ as long as I live and there is nothing that she could possibly say to me to make it right. she's a bully and a maniuplator and I am done with her and don't call me the next time you want a divorce and want to vent cause I'm not hearing you" I called her several other things and hung up. Flew back this morning and have no intention of speaking to her anymore. I'm done.
I feel badly that my son was put in a position that he felt the need to speak to me like that, my daughter is beside herself because I opened a big mouth and i would have said it directly to her, but she didn't have the guts to get on the phone and probably enjoyed the argument that we had. It's too bad she didn't hear what I was saying about her directly, that's the only thing that bother's me.
Just a few other lovely comments from her mouth that casually fell out..
When your mother dies, we'll sell the house and get a vacation home that we all can enjoy.
Thanks for the offer to buy the baby furniture. I found this great crib for $3000.00 I'm sending a pic for you to look at it.
I need some clothes for the twins, just for the spring season so could you get some stuff for me, oh and send the receipt so I can return what I don't like.
You know that necklace you got me? I lost it, so I need another one, do you mind?
This is our Christmas list. Blah Blah Blah
