I’m on mobile and this is my first time posting here so apologies in advance for any errors! Also, please don’t share outside of here.
I fully acknowledge that this specific rant is nowhere as bad as other JNMILs but I just really need to rant. I sadly have even worse stories about JNMIL but those can be posts for another time. For background, I’m very LC with her and my JNILs for my own peace of mind.
I’m currently 34 weeks pregnant and due around 6 weeks from now! My birthday is also 3 weeks from now and apparently JNMIL is thinking about a birthday present for me. She texted DH asking what size I am because she wants to buy me a maternity nightgown/robe. He politely responded saying that I don’t like nightgowns/robes and she sent a really rude and short text. I’m just appalled that a grown woman would give her own son an attitude just because he told her my preference. I wouldn’t even use the thing for long since my birthday is 3 weeks away from my due date! It’s just one of the many examples of how it’s like walking on eggshells around her and I’m just so over her.
Ironically, she preaches “be kind” to everyone and even has it all over her Facebook and car. She proudly wears a “be kind” shirt all the time but she can’t manage to actually be kind to her son. SIGH.
