Day Six?

How long has my mother-in-law been here?

Geez, it feels like forever.

It makes me really wish we lived close enough so that she'd never have to spend the night, but at the same time, I am so very glad we live so far away so I don't have to deal with her on a regular basis.

I am just very ready for this visit to be over.

She broke a picture frame trying to straighten my pictures.

She let Adam paint himself with non-washable paint when she was supposed to be "watching him".

She yelled at Jacob for hugging her while she was eating.

She dragged Adam into the house by his neck when he followed her outside.

She piled all her smoky clothes into Elizabeth's crib stinking it all up.

She hates my dog.

She ate all of my brie.

Yeah, I'm a big baby. I really wanted that brie.

The good news is she is leaving next Tuesday. I knew she wouldn't be able to last three weeks. The kids are driving her nuts and ruining her "vacation".

I knew those kids would come in handy one day.

SHE came to visit YOU on HER vacation, and then she blames the KIDS for ruining it?!! Woah! That's horrible. I hope that you make it through the weekend.

Wow, she sounds like a nightmare. Yay for the kiddos running her off though!

3 weeks...OMG. I think I'd have a massive meltdown after 3 days. We no longer invite my MIL to stay at our house because of all the work she adds and the problems she causes. You are awesome to put up with your MIL for so long! Hang in there!

Yours sounds worse than mine and I didn't think that was possible. Praying that Tuesday comes quickly for you.

Sadie said...

Wow, I just have no words for that. She sounds like a peach of a woman.
