The Diary of a Nobody (and mothers-in-law)

I wrote "HA!" in the margin of my copy of 𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐃𝐢𝐚𝐫𝐲 𝐨𝐟 𝐚 𝐍𝐨𝐛𝐨𝐝𝐲 when I read this because when have I EVER read a high opinion of a mother-in-law? 🤣

What some of our members thought:

"I thought perhaps she was a little annoyed by him so kept her relationship mainly focused on Carrie. When Carrie would say some things to him (about not holding his alcohol well, for example 😅), I could imagine the exasperated conversations she probably had with her mom about it. I'll also add I am super lucky and blessed in the MIL dept. I have even gone on trips with my MIL without my husband! I know she loves me and she really treats me like a daughter." -M

"I was thinking that maybe she kept her mouth shut around him (thus he thought of her as uninterfering) because he was a MAN and as far as we can tell from history, the MAN was the MAN and not to be questioned, etc. 🤷🏻‍♀️" -E 

"Maybe his MIL couldn’t really stand Pooter, so she just pretty much ignored him? Lol! I also had a wonderful MIL. I miss her so much!" -C
