Me and SIL have been talking all day about how random MIL is. Me and H talk about it all of the time.
I could go on and on about how random/weird/bizaare she is but I would be here all day.
How do you find your MIL?

I've never met my MIL.
For that, I am thankful!

Haha yeah completely random, but loveable with it.

O god yes. I spent years being very stressed as she is a total nightmare and I used to worry about having to see her but I don't know when it happened but I seem to have mellowed and I now find her absolutely hilarious. She's terminally ill now and has been close to death 3 times but at the moment she's in good spirits. Despite her illness and being confused at times and weak, she still can put you down with just a few words! So we all went for Christmas dinner on Sunday (as a final meal for her type thing) and she berated each of us in turn. Complained repeatedly to the waitress, moaned about everything and at the end of the meal announced she had a fantastic time and a lovely meal and thoroughly enjoyed herself . She had brain surgery last year, a 10 hour op, poor FIL sat at the hospital all that time and they let him in to intensive care to see her very quickly, she opened her eyes, leaned over and told him he stank and really needed a shave (poor guy has sat there nearly 12 hours waiting to see if she survived surgery...a shave was the last if his worries ), she bought L a Christmas bauble saying 'luke' on it and was furious when I said his babe isn't luke!

O when the sonigrapher told her Isaac was a boy, she complained saying 'but I wanted a girl' the sonographer was like
I was in hospital having Lucas and she told h that her grandson wouldn't be able to come home till she had cleaned the house from top to bottom because its in desperate need for it! I was soooo upset at this but when I found out she spent 20 mins cleaning the kettle h and I had a chuckle

A fruit loop. Last time she was here, she went out and bought me toilet roll, even though she was with me when I picked some up in the supermarket that morning.

*for xmas we asked her to buy our dog a new bed. She bought a big red bed. whats weird i hear you say ? She told us they had them in red or black so she got a red one!
even though my dog is black and my living room is black and white?
*someone asked us recently whilst were TTC do we have twins in the family, so MIL piped up yes im a twin - nobody mentioned that hubby is adopted ? WTF???
*on my hen night i introduced her to my boss, who had her hair down, at the wedding she had her hair up and MIL told her "i didnt recognise you as you look so old with your hair up"
*she told me my wedding dress was vile
*she told the best man he looked porky
*when i first met hubby she told me he only eats homemade meals, so when we first moved out i cooked from scratch every single night, after about a month he asked if we could just have a chicken kiev or something? i was shocked so i said, but you dont like that sort of frozen food, he told me but thats what mum always cooked?
*we went round a friends house for lunch, and she kept telling their children off,infront of them!!!(i was mortified)
*she shooooooed a waitress away from our table (i know i got my food spat in after that)
*She picks imaginary dirt off of my carpet
*she wiped her finger along the mantlepiece and asked if i ever clean
*when she had a key she used to let herself into my house to "sit" with my dog, id come home from work and there she was(key was taken away)
*on one of her afternoons in my house, she hemmed my curtains?
I really could go on, you cant make this sh#t up!

A certified fruitloop

Mine definately is random - she is such a lovely, adorable, loving, kind thoughtful woman, who often acts completely the opposite to this!
I was just thinking I could do with a real MIL/SIL rant - after comments yesterday about it "being a shame we won't all be together for Xmas, but they'll see us soon...". Thankfully H replied, yes, when they visit us (which was NOT what she meant).. I'm 37+6, and we're 4-5hours away..

My MIL died before I really got to know her.

mine is as mad as a box of jelly covered frogs. She generally means well, but sometimes totally does my head in. She talks too much about random nonesense and people i don't know and will never meet. She worked as an auxillary nurse for a couple of years, so when her neighbours dad died, they invited her in to "deal with the body". WTF? I totally fail to see the connection. She the proceeded to tell me in great detail how she dealt with leaking bodily fluids and "made him up" so he looked nice. Again, WTF?? She is not and never has been an undertaker! Why would they ask her to do that and why would she agree?? Seriously, she is so so odd.

My MIL is bonkers, selfish and rude. She thinks that the world revolves around her and that no one else matters. I can count on my hand the amount of times she's seen the children since they've been born. I try and avoid her at all costs.
Glad I'm not the only one with a random fruit loop of a MIL. Mine was on the phone crying to me the other night, we aren't even properly on speaking terms, totally random.

Yup mine is just weird - and what's worse is that SIL is even worse and the two of them together....I struggle not to flip sometimes. I find copious amounts of alcohol helps when we have to socialise with them.... ;)

Mine is normally OKish except for the time she got out a photo of her as a young woman and compared it to one of me on our wedding day and said "look how similar we look". WTF? So you think your son has married someone who looks like his own mother and you think thats a flattering thing to point out?!
For the record I don't look like her!
