family advice (post new situation)
"i think i am going nuts"
I am a mom to a 15-month-old son, and I am 31. I am in a stable and happy marriage. My problem is that I can not stand my mother-in-law. I'm sure she is a fine person, however, we don't click at a personal level. Therefore, I have a hard time seeing her with my son. I know she has a right to spend time with my son, therefore I bring him to visit her once a week for a lunch/dinner. Is this reasonable? And why do I have such a hard time watching my mother in law hugging/kissing my son?! I really don't know why!! You'd think I'd want someone who would love my son just as much as I do and I am sure my mother in law does! My own parents live very far away, and I wish they could have a relationship with my son...I don't know what's wrong with me.
