Re: Any advice to make baby calm?

Ok, dont laugh. My eldest calmed down when I held her upside down. No, I am not kidding. I flipped her over by holding her with her back against my stomach, good hold on shoulders and other arm around her stomach. Yeah, it was weird but it worked. She loved it and would start giggling as I did the b...

Re: MIL wants to see DC

DH told me earlier MIL asked to see our newest baby. I want to be a size 2 guess neither of us gets what we want. Ok , ok. Instead of saying above (or after :wink: ) ask hubby of what benefit could that be to the CHILD Benefit to MIL or any adults is of no concern. But I would bring up what about w...

Re: How can I piss off inlaws at engagement party

I agree with the above. Dont purposely do anything or it will make you look bad. HOWEVER, Get one of your buddies who is quick with sarcasm, comebacks etc that takes no crap. Make sure they are sitting right next to them or across the table. If they say anything remotely ...crabby your friend can go...

Re: Hate my SIL & Niece

No, you are not bad for feeling the way you do. You had this dumped on you without your consent. It is normal and perfectly understandable to feel as you do. I sure would. However, what would be bad is to take it out on the child. Not saying you are. First, how old is this child? Second, you need to...

Re: Christmas 2020 - The continuing Saga

The nonsense hasn’t stopped, but at least it has become more amusing. I keep saying, "you cant change another person's behavior, only your response to it. " When I started treating my interactions with MIL as a game, it got funnier and she got madder. When my DH finally started dealing with his nar...

Re: I absolutely hate my in-laws from a guy's point of view

Welcome. So sorry you are in the same boat as all of us here. A lot of the submissions here are probably from a woman's point of view There actually are some men on this site. Many do not post. Statistically speaking there probably are just as many men as women in this situation but like domestic ab...

Re: Is it weird that I don’t like my in laws?

No, you most certainly are not weird. I had an issue some years ago with a friend of my DH's. DH could not get through his head that his friend did not like me (and I couldn't stand him) . "Everybody loves you," Dh would say. I would counter with "No that's not true and its ok. Not everyone loves or...

Re: How to move forward...

I’m not naturally that way. Neither was I . But I learned to toughen up. That was hard on me. My DH who was still a DUH at the time even made a comment that when he left for work that morning it was if he came home to a totally different person. My mother said it was as if a light switch was flippe...

Re: Odd Neighbor Advice

Glad to hear its better. Its amazing how knowing you are on camera makes people behave...and sad that that is what it takes.

It might behoove you to also invest in those fake cameras. They have a bright LED light that makes it look like it is "live" A few more might not hurt.

Re: Of Thanksgiving and Obedience

YES! Next time I would say she did NOT ruin anything, you are glad to get the chance to once again be clear that you are done with her bad behavior. Trust me , that statement will drive her nuts. :twisted:

Deal with it just as you did. Perfect.

Re: New Reason to Hate MIL

Practice in front of mirror. Get down the look. Get a look of pity, "oh you poor thing how stupid you are," Get that smile down and a slight nod of your head back and forth with a tsk tsk. Look at them with such a condescending smile. Start doing that EVERYTIME they say something.
