101 Things I don't like about my in laws

1. Over parenting of my child.. He is my child, not yours. Yours don't think they have good parenting, please don't do the same on mine.
2. Afraid of everything.. Flowers (got pesticide), dogs (germs), chocolate (can cause asthma?), balcony (can collapse), dust (dirty), soft toys (dusty!!), more to add ...
3. I can't have a date with just my husband... Because once we have kids, our lives MUST evolve around them.
4. There is no such thing as privacy.. Mother in law can come into the bathroom or bedroom unannounced and without knocking at the door...sigh..
5. Hobby? Me time? What are those?
6. Everything must be double tripped bagged with plastic bags..
7. Only listens to their dear daughters...
8. MUST put children no.1.. If not you are a horrible parent..
9. Maids have to be perfect.
10. Actually, everyone has to be perfect. If you are not, you are not worth listening.
11. Unless you're rich or has XY chromosome.. If not, bad luck, you don't count.
12. Passive aggressive comments...

In laws

How I wish I don't have to stay with my in laws..

Most of the time I don't have a say in how I raise my child... All that I could do is see from a distance and watch.. Any suggestions that I have is shot down or looked down upon by parents in law and sister in law. Doesn't help that my sister in law lives in the next block and is always hanging around our house to give out her advises (welcomed or not)..

I don't even feel like a grown up. Any ideas that both me and husband have would also be shot down as childish or brushed aside.. Especially if dear daughter says otherwise... It's ironic when dear daughter when staying with her own parents wanted to run away!

If only I can runaway.. Pack my bags, my children's bags and my husband's... It's sad when you have to run away from your own home.. Sad...
