15 Things Your Daughter-in-Law Won't Tell You

1:48 PM

I am very grateful to have a man that was raised well. I am so appreciative every day to my In-Laws for that. Relationships are always hard. No one likes their foundation shaken and stirred. I am curious to see the reaction this post gets. In real life, no one agree's 100% of the time. Which is Ok. I know no matter how perfect your life is, every DIL has felt like this one way or another. I hope people don't take this too serious, my posts are for the LULZ. Sure there is some sentiment, but I know there is always that one person that does not know how to take it for what it is. So, if you have a good, great or downright terrible relationship with your MIL, I am sure you will get something out of my post! (:

1.Parenting advice? Thanks, but no thanks.

Unless, I ask of course! (: Remember, I am married to your son and there are a lot of things we want to do differently with our kids.

2. I know when you are being Passive Aggressive.

I may be young and stupid in your eyes, but I know when you are being genuine vs. going through the motions. It hurts, and it takes every ounce of energy not to roll my eyes...

3. I can cook.

Your son actually LOVES my cooking. Sure, I don't have 25 years plus in the kitchen and still have a lot to learn. I'll ask for cooking advice when needed, and I should not be expected to supply like Paula Dean.

4. Yes, I am good enough for him. 

I know in your eyes, no woman will be good enough for him and that is sweet. However, I am good enough for him and he tells me every day! 

5. I am not a moocher! 

I am not saying there aren't women out there who exist, buy I am not one of them. Yes, your son is successful. Ask him if he could be where he is without me, go ahead ask him....

6. I have excepted that everything I say/wear/do will always be inappropriate. 

I could wear a potato sack and your son will still think I look sexy. I can't help it. If you don't like my outfit, chances are your son encouraged it. 

7. I want a REAL relationship with you.

This goes back to going through the motions. If I get angry with you, disagree or show my true colors it is because I love you. Take it as a compliment...seriously!

8. Sorry I am nothing like you

I know we don't see eye to eye, but that doesn't mean I don't respect you. Respecting you and agreeing with you are two different things...

10. I won't stick around if I don't have to

If I feel tension in the room, I am not obligated to stick around. Make me feel uncomfortable, I will disappear!

11. I am not going anywhere.

I plan on sticking around for a very long time. So if you don't like it, I am sorry. 

12. I will give what I get.

It's really simple. Show love, I will show love. Throw me shade, I will throw shade right back. 

13. The greatest gift you could give me is a GENUINE compliment.

No, I am not talking about backhanded compliments like "Oh, you look better in person. You looked a little sick in your Facebook pictures." NO. I am talking about really reaching to find SOMETHING you actually like about me!

14. I don't want to be your enemy. 

However, if you come between me and my husband, talk behind my back or manipulate situations. I will have a problem with that. 

15. Thank You!

At the end of the day, you are responsible for the single most important thing in my life. I will always be grateful for that!
