Ultimate Monster-in-law

Its no secret I have a monster-in-law. I doubt there's anyone who hasn't heard me complain about her. Picking up my son at daycare without asking me first . . . or asking me a question and not getting the answer she liked, so calls my husband on his cell to ask him as if she didn't talk to me . . . I could go on and on. Well, today hit a new high (or low, however you look at it).

My SIL and mom wanted to throw me a baby shower. I didn't have one before J*was born, b/c I was worried it would jinx the adoption. I didn't have a wedding shower either. I didn't love the idea of a baby shower this time, but it grew on me, and I just want my friends and family to share this wonderful time with me . . .

My mom called MIL to discuss it with her (because its the RIGHT thing to do . . . that's my Mom), and my MIL said no, that I didn't need a shower b/c we have everything we need. Umm NO! We borrowed most everything b/c we were broke from adoption expenses, and gave it all back, She also said that if she invited her family and friends to a shower for, they would end up feeling like they had to give two gifts, because they'd give a gift when the baby was born. Whatever, like people don't have minds of their own?

Of course she said this as SHE IS PLANNING a baby shower for HER NIECE who is due 3 weeks after me. Can you believe that! Excuse me? What's the difference?? And of course she has given countless baby showers for her other nieces or nephew's wives. Makes me feel really loved. Please insert 4-letter C word here.

My mom will have it anyway, and my MIL is not invited. I'm thinking all sorts of four-letter words about her, but the "c" word is summing her up quite nicely today. Who needs her?

Sorry for the vent. I'm still crying a bit. And just to warn you, this is officially war.

I'm so sorry that the Monster is at it again! Screw her, who does she think she is telling your Mom that you don't need a shower. Definitely don't invite her, she'd be lucky if I even let her see the baby. Ugh! ((HUG)) Sorry hun.

OMG. I am so sorry sweetie. That is just...well...just a four letter C word for you!

Screw her. She doesn't need to be at your shower. You and your loved ones have a great time celebrating Baby Doo Doo.

I just want to give you a hug. And give your MIL a kick in her freaken ass!
