Troy's Mother.

My mother in law is staying with us for Thanksgiving. She just arrived this morning. This must be why the sudden push to do everything exactly the way Troy wants.

When she arrived, she told me what a terrible job I was doing as a mother because I let my children go to private school. When I gently told her that it was Troy's decision, and that I was against it, she turned the tables on me! Suddenly private school was the best thing ever and I should be ashamed of myself for not wanting to integrate my children in with other children in a Godly environment.

Troy did see some sense and brought home some Purex so I could wash my clothes. When my mother in law saw it, she freaked out about having two kinds of laundry detergent. When I explained that I was allergic to Gain, she told me that I needed to learn how to make sacrifices for my family.

She heard I was having twins and asked what kind of formula I was buying them. When I said I was breast feeding, she said that was not healthy and that I needed to stop being so selfish and  let other people feed them. She also said that my breasts would only make enough milk for one baby, not two, and I would soon find out that one of the babies would die if I tried breastfeeding them both.

Nothing I do is good enough for her, and it is tiring.

  1. Troy's mom sounds totally jealous that you get to have babies and she is to old to have them anymore.

  2. You probably ought to tell her that she can spring for your Allegra from now on!

  3. By the way, breast feeding is perfectly healthy (if it's feasible)! It gives your kids natural antibodies.

  4. So in reading a few posts of this blog I have come to the conclusion that whoever Ashleigh is they are not real. I think this is a grand experiment to see how many sheeple actually respond and give advise for these ridiculous posts. The bad grammar is a dead give away as is the curious lack of personal information on the home page.

  5. Anonymous #4, do not speak about anyone else's bad grammar. Let's look at YOURS " whoever Ashleigh is they are not real." It should be "whoever Ashleigh is SHE is not real." One person. How about "give advise for these ridiculous posts"? The correct word is advice, with a C. Advise is the verb. Advice is the noun. You advise someone on what he should do; you give advice.

    So you're (you are, NOT your, which shows possession) just as dumb as you say others are. Maybe YOU are "Ashleigh".

  8. So, where does she live? Where is your father-in-law? Is he still alive? If he was not there with her, any of the 3 reasons I can think of, that might be stressing her out. And possibly she is jealous that you and Troy have each other and she doesn't have him; at least not the same way. If he died, I can relate. I miss my husband but I try not to take it out on people. If they have split up, that is a very lonely life; probably even lonelier. Maybe all her friends, and his relatives, are blaming her. One of my divorced friends says they all turned their backs because she is now a "fallen woman". If he is in a nursing home, that also is not an easy journey. Maybe this is the first time she has taken a trip away from him.
    Troy, you said, was raised to be a man of God. Was she, the woman who raised him as such, always like this?
    I'm glad Troy is now taking your allergy seriously. I was at Wal-Mart shopping the other day, and thought of you when I saw the Gain detergent. Yes, it's cheaper than Purex, but Purex has a cold water version. That can save you more money in the long run.
    I think you and Troy need some other older couples in your life to mentor you. Is that not possible where you are, and that's why you seem to gravitate towards the Duggars?

    1. My father in law opted not to come. They live in Saskatchewan and the cost for both of them to visit was too much.
      Troy says his mother has always been a strong woman.

      Funny you should mention older couples in our lives. We have started having weekly dates with the Assistant Pastor at our church and his wife.
