Re: Vent about MIL

I agree with the pp's who said that #1 she is probably just trying to get your dd to herself for awhile and #2 she criticizes things she doesnt understand or didn't get a chance to do b/c it makes her feel better about herself.
I have tons of issues with my MIL. She was always asking when I was going to wean. Now she wants to know when I am going to cut dd's hair!
My dh is the youngest of her 4 boys, and I seriously think that mothers who have only sons freak out when the sons get married because they feel they've lost them. (And in some senses, maybe that feeling is justified...I know I have a much closer relationship to my mom than dh ever will.) She needs to get over it, though,and get a new hobby!
