Well first of all, my husband's mother (parents) not just mother. But his mother has control over both his parents. ~ so most times they are both at fault.
I always knew his mother was used to having control over her kids. My husband only has one sister.
When we bought our first home, she stayed with us for one month. Typically she told us how to live in it, how to clean it etc. So that was WWI. Cuase I just went off and told her what to do with her opinions.
Then she is ALWAYS getting on their cases for not phoning all the time. Hey! We're busy people we dont have time to be phoning them all the time. (They live in another province) as us and as his sister.
Then, his mom's birthday was on Dec 9. We sent her a beautiful card and two really nice Xmas broaches. She called him to say that she didnt like it and the next time to send money! my husband was almost in tears becuase she just slapped that in his face. I got so upset!
And now, we are expecting our first child. Just to add to the background history here, his Dad used to stay with us for about 6 months to work then he travels back home and lives home (with his wife). So now, its that time of year for him to return to work and his Dad asked if him and his mom could stay with us for the summer! You are kidding me!!! So of course, my husband explained to them that we are starting to raise our family and we wanted to be alone this year. But they dont understand at all. They are being such pigs about it. His mother is making him feel bad saying he doesnt want them around and they cant beleive that their son would say such a thing...bla bla bla.
They are very selfish people who think they have a right!
I am so mad!!!!
