My mom hasn't been around my daughter aside from the day she was born. Granted, she's only 3 1/2 weeks old, but I'm honestly not sure where things are with Mom. She told me about a month and a half before Bella was born that she was cutting off all communications with me due to religious reasons...Surprisingly she showed up at the hospital when Bella was born, and was very nice to me. Other than that I haven't heard a word from her since she "cut me off".

My mom is the softest hear on the planet. She watches my kids while I am at work. It's very cost effective. I pay their van payment, car insurance, and for their meds (my parents are disabled) in exchange for daycare. She loves them, but can't stand to hear a kids cry or to say no. She spoils them rotten. She used to be spic and span clean, but is now too worn out and has become a clutter bug. I am trying to simplify our home (I moved in with my parents to pay their mortgage so they won't loose their home.) We are on the right track.

My mom is on the other coast, but still manages to visit relatively often. She is amazingly supportive of our choices as parents, even when they differ from hers, and respects our decisions.

Naturally, we still have a mother-daughter relationship so we do have our little sources of tension, hehe! It's always over stupid stuff, like communicating over plane tickets or whatever.

Well, that is a bit touchier of a situation. My Mom is usually fine, but every now and again she has an over dramatic meltdown. She is also married to an alcoholic and she and my step dad both chain smoke. I love my Mom, and she is a good Grandma. I do try to limit the time we spend at her house.

MIL is a spick spanking clean (as opposed to some of your posts on the last QOTD). On the other hand, mom is another story entirely. Though she never interferes in the way we raise our children, since she lives thousands of miles away we need to actually know how to live under the same roof as her - visits are LONG and in close quarters. BUT mom is SUPER messy and DH is SUPER organized. YIKES! What a combination! I dread and anticipate every year the 2-3 week visits - which this year is scheduled for the end of August. I love mom and am excited to see her, but I dread what she'll do to my house! And her carelessness sometimes spills over to the way she watches my kids - so I get nervous when I leave them alone together. But I try to bite my tongue 'cuz lord knows she definitely means well!
