My MIL is great. She will help out when ever we ask. She cant wait until Mika can sleep over. Her and FIL come over at least twice a week to see their grandchildren. Cant say that about my mother.

Michelle - mom to Mathew and Mika.

Same here with the cleanliness. I would never let my daughter down on the floor at MIL's house. She has a dirty little dog that is always messing on the floor and the rest of the house isn't much better either. She is sweet and thoughful but also a little daffy. She isn't too involved, just enough I guess. She means well.

I think family is important. So even though I don't agree with the cleanliness of my IL house, or their eating habits I take my kids to visit them every Sunday for an hour or two. When Ena was born they started cleaning 1/2 way one room of their house. Now I don't have to keep the kids on my lap during our stay. I just have to follow them around to keep them from picking up the trillion things on every table top space in the room. I am also extreamly happy that they quit smoking 3 months ago. They wouldn't smoke when we were over, but the smell and residue was still there. My MIL is a little daffy, but very sweet and loving.

I lucked out with mine, although she has tried to interfere a couple times, she mostly stays out of our hair and is willing to have our oldest (4) over for sleep overs almost once a month. She tends to be a bit "hippie" in the sense that she is anti a lot of things but funny about it in some ways. She definitely the active grandma as well. Today is her birthday in fact!

Blessings towards all our journeys.

As far as MILs go, mine is really great! She loves us all to death and never interferes or demands too much from us. My only complaint is that she is the consummate worry wart. She is always SO over the top nervous that Caleb is going to hurt himself, or we are going to get ill, or a million other worst case scenarios.

MIL is a nightmare and a joy! She loves to pout and complain about how hard her life is, and to expect us to take care of her since her other children don't. She loves to play the silent treatment when we don't agree with her or she doesn't get her way. Overall - she's the victim and she plays the part well.
On the other hand, when things are good they're great. She doesn't interfere with the way we raise our kids, and she does love us. When we are together, we enjoy each other's company and the kids really benefit from that - as I'm sure hubby does too.
