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.
