Oh, no you DIDN"T

so the PILS are coming to visit the third week of July. the hubs called them last week to see how his father was doing after a minor outpatient procedure.

hubs--"so mom, the kids are really looking forward to your visit."

MIL--"i was talking to a friend at church last sunday about the trip. she asked me what activities there are in indianapolis. i said i had NO idea. what exactly WILL we be doing there? how will we fill the time? (5 days) i DON'T want to be bored."


first of all, there is no way in hell she just said that! this from the person who said her heart was bleeding because we were moving her grandchildren far away, and she missed them every day. her heart "bleeds" for them, and she "misses them every day", but she doesn't know how she'll spend her time while visiting???? here's a suggestion---f*cking play with your grandchildren!

second of all, take heart ladies. sometimes the man of house gets some gumption.

hubs--"um, i don't know, mom. maybe you will spend your time SEEING your grandchildren? i guess it's good you're not staying longer, since you don't know how you'll pass the time for 5 days."

Wow. I give her credit for the 5 days. My m-i-l gets bored after about 15 minutes. When she was a baby I could hear her start to huff and puff under the complete strain of having to hold a perfectly adorable 8 lb girl.

Good for the husband!!!!! Mine got over his parents quite rapidly AFTER we had kids (should have had them sooner, I guess). Hope you survive the 5 days. I forsee lots of alcohol in your future! :)

Good for him for saying something, my husband would have sat and listened while the crickets chirped.

Good for your hubby!! I would drop dead in my tracks if my hubby ever stood up to his mom. He refuses to "disrespect" her.

WOW! What a thing to say! That's awesome that your hubs had a quick response for her.

Just wanted to say I live about an hour from Indy and there is TONS to do, all of which could be done WITH the grandkids. Too bad she's such a psycho and probably wouldn't enjoy any of it.

Best of luck with the visit!
