Hello there! I'm Jillz. I'm 26 years old and currently reside in Texas with my high school sweetheart turned husband, Joseph, and our two sons Travis, who was born on October 7, 2010 and Nathan, who was born on May 15, 2012 I'm a full time mother to my two children, a full time military wife to my husband who is in the Air Force, and an RN.
I blog about a variety of things from the challenges and joys of parenthood, the bittersweet moments of being a military wife, the rewarding and stressful moments at work, and just life in general.
So back in January, my mother in law came here briefly (by that I mean 3 days, all the way from Florida too) to help me out a bit while Joseph was deployed. The original agreement between the three of us was that she was going to stay with me and Travis for a month instead she ended up staying THREE DAYS! She flew in on Wed night and was flying back to Florida on Sunday morning. Why? All because her dog apparently “missed” her and was urinating all over the house (even though her husband was at their home taking care of their dog). Here’s the actual entry that I blogged about regarding the situation.
So it’s been months and neither my husband nor I have heard from her! She never even emailed my husband while he was deployed, not even to ask how he’s doing or to explain herself. Joseph is upset/pissed (more towards angry though) about it and is debating about emailing her himself. I told him that if he really felt like he should, then he should email her. However, part of me thinks that she should email or get in contact first you know?
It’s sad because my husband and my mother-in-law didn’t talk for THIRTEEN years till 2007 (due to custody issues, which I won’t get into. Joseph grew up with his dad). Now that her and her son finally have a relationship, why is she acting like this? After all her claims how much she’s missed him and how she’s happy to finally have a relationship with him, now she doesn’t want to even get in touch with him, ask how her grandkids are doing, and congratulate her son on the birth of his second child (I know full well she knows because my husband and I are friends with her niece on FB).
It just boggles my mind.
