I am so frustrated with my mother in law right now.

Thanks for the thoughts.
It is official...MIL is hoping for children after my brain surgery.
I can't believe she'd ask a question like that now.
Seriously. I can't wrap my head around why people would be so obsessed about grandchildren that they'd be so callous about the health of another loved one.
Do you really think she is stupid or could it be that she loves her son and had hoped to enjoy children that he might have? Do you think she might feel that you are a part of her family and that she should feel comfortable expressing her thoughts? Do you think that maybe your husband shouldn't have shared the conversation as he knew it would upset you? Again, do you find her to be a stupid person across board or just when it comes to the issue of having children? Do you think that on the flip side of life for those of us that have to deal with living life in a world where it is assumed all will have children that she is dealing with that same assumption and, like all grief, it waxes and wanes? Would you prefer to maintain a distant relationship with her? Have you specifically told her that you do not want to hear one more word about having children? Has your husband told her that he does not want to hear one more word about having children? How she explain ignoring your wishes?
