I had a detailed post typed out, but decided to cut it down. I am in need of cooler, perhaps experienced heads on this one. My MIL has always played games with her children, playing favorites and attempting to pit them against their father, which caused all kinds of problems for DH until he was fifteen and moved in with his dad and found out he was nothing like the monster MIL had described. Dh's dad is great and we both adore him. He is all kinds of excited about the baby. Well, her games have reared their head again and this time she used my unborn baby as a pawn. I am seriously considering calling her up and telling her if she wants to see this baby she will stop trying to hurt her son to get her way and never involve my child in her selfish little games ever again... it's ridiculous and she has no compunctions about toying with little children whatsoever, and I think I might explode if she tries it once my baby is here. Since her last stunt she hasn't called in a month but once the baby is born it will be an entirely different story. She definitely likes to play Mommy, know what I mean? I don't know whether to let it lie and pretend nothing happened or call her on it. Blah... at least DH's stepmother is normal.
