How Not To Show Your Support

MIL Dearest:

I never knew that our family-building attempts were such a burden to you so when you responded with "Again???!!!" in disgust after we told you we were going to try IVF #2, it made me wonder that either a) our one child is one too many especially considering the time (or lack thereof) that you spend with him; or b) you have no concept of what the difference is between "two" and "two-hundred". Thank you so much for your loving support in what we consider a very difficult time.

A Mother-in-Law blog... what a great way to vent a lot of frustration and anger! I could be filling a lot of space up if I started writing about mine......all good things of course, because she knows everything and does nothing wrong. LOL

MILs may do a lot of crappy stuff, but that takes the cake. I say you kick her in the junk.

PS Good luck on the IVF!

What a cowbag! You would think the idea of more grandchildren would be a good thing, not something to react like that to! You should suspend her grandma privileges!

Hope the IVF goes well. Sending "get pregnant" vibes your way.

Oh man!! Your MIL takes the take. What a completely insensitive, not to mention heartless, thing to say.

I wish you all the best with your IVF. I hope it goes well for you and that baby #2 will be on it's way this time!

what a bitch! sorry that you have to endure the likes of that. maybe you can come back with, "well, since you had children such a LONG LONG time ago,you probably just can't recall what it's like trying to conceive. i mean, c'mon, it was practically the middle ages." follow up with a fake laugh.

best of luck with the IVF and all attending stresses.

Don't even bother to call her when the baby's born.

How anyone could be DISGUSTED at the thought of a new grandchild is beyond me. How insensitive of her not to support you!
