The Joy of Mother-IN-LAWS

Posted by Angiefairbanks at 2:33 PM 2 comments
Recently I had my sons birthday party, he turned 3. We were doing a fishing theme so she told me she wanted to buy him a fish for his birthday. I told her "NO!" Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against fish, but it was for my son. Let me says this again, he was turning 3! I knew that if she bought him a fish the fish would very quickly become my fish. I am past the time of my life that I want a fish as a pet. I have two kids and a husband, if I wanted to take care of something I would get a cat or a dog or something that at least would be a little bit more fun than a fish. She really was adamant that she get him a fish and finally I said yes only if she would come and clean the bowl once a week.

Sure enough at the party last night she brough my 3 YEAR OLD a present that I was sure was a fish. We took it out of the gift bag and sure enough, not one but 2 fish. There was also a snail which I was told would help keep the tank clean (we'll see). I later found out that one of the fishes was PREGNANT!

I thought to my self, I give you an inch you take a mile! I know its just fish it is just irritating. She knows I wasn't happy about the idea but she did it anyways. Now my son "loves the fish" and says "they are my best friend." What can I do now.

What is it about mother-in-laws that drive us as women crazy. I know there are a few of you out there that have great mother-in-laws and I guess this posting doesn't apply. I just don't get it I have no idea why it is always like this. Mother-in-laws have an uncanny ability to drive us CRAZY!

I needed to rant. Post a comment or send me an email about your mother-in-law!
