Hiya please can I have a private post?
Not sure what I’m expecting from this, I half need to rant and half need some advice on how to deal with it.
So my mother in law has been on the phone to my husband complaining about how I haven’t arranged to meet her this week (I try to see all family members once a week so they can see my daughter) but I’ve been busy and also figured if she hadn’t called me then she was busy too. But she was complaining that she was in all week and that she hasn’t heard from me. She asked what I’m doing tomorrow to which my husband replied that I’m going for a run with my dad so my Mum is looking after our daughter while we go. His mum then seemed to have a problem with this because I went for a run with my dad (therefore saw my parents) on Tuesday. So it now seems she is keeping track of when I see my parents!
She also thought I’d be going to see my husbands nan today seeing as she got back from holiday yesterday. I feel like they all expect me to run around seeing them, my mil always seems to have a problem when I’m busy and it’s stressing me out. I feel like all I do is schedule in who I’m visiting and when and it’s exhausting, and I love seeing my parents and being made to feel guilty for being closer to them than my in-laws.
Do I confront my mil? (I don’t like confrontation) or do I just ignore it ? My husband says it’s not his problem but I just feel like I could scream at her especially as it now seems she’s keeping track of when I see my family. Gaaah!
