Has anyone had a problem with the in-laws? I'm sure you can relate. Their craziness didn't really bother me until it came down to my child. Then I become tiger mom. I will not ever let anyone, I don't care who you are, put down my child. Somehow, someway, in-laws hate my child to the point that they can't remember his name. I blame it on early onset of dementia or just being mentally unstable. The worst part is they tell other people his wrong name. Honestly, though they just don't like his first name.
My in-laws call my son by his middle name. It's pretty sad that they keep telling everyone around that it's his real first name. The worst part is when I had my son I was still cool with my MIL, who three years later turned into a monster. A heartless monster. So she convinced me to use the middle name after someone on their side of the family. Sure whatever. I agreed. How frustrating that three years later, they tell strangers the wrong name. My son's first name is after my side of the family which I guess they are really unhappy about. Maybe that's why they don't love him as much? Maybe that's why they send him rotten Halloween cookies a week after Halloween. Whatever it is I never want my child to feel any less than anyone else. At this point my son obviously doesn't even know his middle name. He just learned how to say his first name. In laws are beyond nutty people. If you are an in-law, please know your grandchild's name, that's the least you can do.
I have no solution to this problem other than to ignore them.
