Acutally, yes, my mom. My brother's wife is a very lucky lady. The one and only time my mom tried to say something bad about her only DIL, my sister and I jumped her bones so quick she cried. I didn't meant to make my own mother cry, but we had a good chat with my mom about talking to her DIL about the things that were bothering her and not the rest of us. So, she did, and things worked out fine. SIL told us a little while later she had a chat with my mom and things worked out. And now my mom is sending my SIL things while she is away for college, care packages, cards, letters, silly things. HAHAH. I wish my MIL was like my mom.
