[ - ] I have 2 DDs, and I realized that, as much as I would have wanted a boy, I'm glad I'll have sons-in-law and not DILs (most probably, not that there's anything wrong about that, yadda yadda yadda...). And I have quite a good relationship with my MIL. 8 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I'm going to enjoy both! I won't be an idiot who treats my DIL like a daughter. I'll have my daughters AND I'll develop a respectful friendship with my DIL if she wants one. [ Reply | More ]

NP: What is the issue with treating your DIL like a daughter? Genuinely asking, not trying to be snarky. [ Reply | More ]

It's presumptuous and most women don't want another mother. They already have one. Some in-laws just jump right in, want DIL to call them mom and dad, expect to waltz right into the house without knocking, expect to give DIL advice, etc. My in-laws were just like any other acquaintances when we met. Over 15 years, I now love them, but it took that time. Sorry, you're not eating off my plate when I barely know you. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I am so sad. My instincts tell me my mom will not be around much longer. She's yellowish, doesn't engage, fake smiles. I don't know what to do. After much hounding she went to docs and a specialist but insists all it is is low iron. She's always out of breath and doesn't get excited or speak of the future. Gingerly I spoke to my dad and he says she's committed to being around for (10 years) to see her grandkids graduate. He could be keeping something from me or not know. I've posted before. Today she looked like death and I noticed her breath smells medicinal. 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

71. We butt heads. She's secretive and stubborn. [ Reply | More ]

I'm sorry. I would trust your instincts. It sounds like your dad is being shifty. But if he thinks she has a chance of surviving she must have something with at least a chance of several years. Can you force him to tell you? My mom died last year at 71 with undiagnosed (until the last second) lymphoma. She had also pulled into herself. And she didn't want to face her situation so she hid it from her doctors, her family and friends, and herself. [ Reply | More ]
