Michael is more than a month old now, and my mother-in-law has been at my house at least once every day to see him since he got home from the hospital, with the exception of one day when we were gone the entire day. In comparison, my mom has only been over five or six times. I’m getting really fucking sick of it, too. My wife seems to think her mom will stop coming over so often once Michael gets a little older, but I have no such delusions. I think the woman is a fucking psycho. My wife’s sister comes over at least once every other day, and she’s just as psycho, if not more. I just don’t like the fact that my child is going to be heavily influenced by a bunch of back-country redneck psychos.
So I suppose one of my primary goals as a father is to spread the propaganda, and try to undo any damage caused by them. My wife agrees with me that her parents are fucked up and Michael shouldn’t spend much time with them alone, but she doesn’t seem to care that we have almost no privacy right now. Her mom will come over when we’re in the middle of dinner, or when we’re watching a movie, and she doesn’t give a shit that she’s interrupting us. My wife doesn’t want to tell her flat out to leave us alone, but I’m almost to the point where I’m going to snap one day and physically remove her from my property and make it clear that I don’t ever want to see her again. Someday…
