So we had a very nice 6-7 month break from mil.



Long story short.. She chucked a huge fit about us grounding tash on Christmas Eve because she was acting out and despite many warning she didn't care, so she got grounded. Mil hated that. Told us we shouldn't have done that. How horrible. Blah blah blah. Ignore us for a long while.. Mother's Day rolled by and hubs wanted to get her flowers. So he did and stopped by to drop them off and the kids and I stayed in the car. She burst into years and said she didn't care anymore and just to tell everyone to come on inside.



Well since then it's been quiet and they've stopped by a couple times just to visit. We gave them a whole bunch of stuff from the garage that they e been wanting like the fridge and old washing machine, old sink basin and a bunch of baby clothes and toys for when they get a visit from the family friends baby girl whose mother passed away during childbirth, (very sad but she's such a cutie). Anyway...



Hubs has invited them over every day for the past couple weeks for dinner. So I've been having to dip into our food storage to double up for enough food for these meals. :x.



And they are coming over for dinner yet again tonight, so I had to take out 2 lots of chicken instead of just one.



Ugh.. We spent soo much money on meat and food for the month because we didn't know when we'd have the money again so we bought a lot of food to last. And I've planned out everything to last us for a fair while...



Not going to last long at this rate :? Doied everything for 2 weeks now, no left overs and us dessert.



I'm frustrated, annoyed. And wish he never dropped off flowers on Mother's Day. We wouldn't be going through this..




End rant.

Maybe ask if they can bring some food to contribute or just ask your husband not to invite them over as much?!

Maybe he could just start inviting them over during the day or sometime other than dinner time? Or go somewhere like the park and hang out.



But wishing he didn't drop off the flowers and make up with his mother sounds awful. I would be elated if my fiance was in that situation and made up with his mom.

She's not his mother.. His foster mother. And she's a b***h.

He wanted to give her flowers and invites her over. Sounds like he cares about her to me. I just think its pretty sad to wish he didn't patch things up.

I would be so flipping mad if DH made up with his mom. But she is a disgrace! When FIL died she flipped out saying how selfish everyone is! She called my DS stupid, and basically called my mom a wh**e! I seriously hate that stupid broad!

Stop making full ''dinners'' till dh stops inviting extra people......grilled cheese sandwhiches & tomatoe soup, hot dogs & mac-n-cheese, beans & rice casserole....find cheap meal that spread far :) when dh gets tired of it and wants a ''homecooked'' meal he will stop inviting them over.

He kind hearted, yes. He hates my sister, but still gives her flowers on her birthday. Just a kind gesture. He enjoyed the peace and quiet. But is kind of glad we have our babysitter back. I think that's why he's inviting them over so much, he wants us to go out without the kids. It's just annoying right now.

Still his mother in his eyes, obviously. He's bringing her flowers for Mother's Day. I was with you until you said that evil shit at the end.

For all the money you're spending on food, you can just hire a babysitter. No point in using someone to watch your kids if you genuinely don't like them.



I think he does like spending time with her and tells you he doesn't because he knows YOU don't like her.

Exactly, if he didn't, he wouldn't invite her over as much!

Lol this woman is a piece of work too. Said he should've married her daughter instead of me. I'm American trash. Using him for my visa and his money. I should've given up the kids and had an abortion with Marcus. I deserved my miscarriage. I'm a horrible parent. A horrible housewife. I don't deserve anything new because I wouldn't know how to treat it. And that was all before she had a death scare... Then suddenly when she's out of hospital she wants to be best friends. Yeah I can't forgive Nd forget how she treated me before that and it's pretty bad for her to suddenly want to be best friends and forget everything she has ever said to me and treated me because she almost died. Second chances don't come that easy darlin. Not with me.

No he tolerates her.



I understand your point of view being an outsider...

No he does it for the kids mainly and to keep us in her "good graces" ..



So we could get help around the house from fil and so she'll watch the kids for us if we want to have a night alone or if we need to do something.
