    I am blessed with two beautiful grand children but it should be the parents choice.

    It's not but she's certainly an interested party. My wife tells her girls all the, "C'mon, I want grand kids". The youngest one is engaged to really nice guy so she may get her wish soon. I can also see her being just like your friend's MIL to the daughter's husband.

    I'm not sure how to answer your question, but I do know that I'd much rather have a MILILD harassing me than a MIL.

    Both of my daughters are married, and we enjoy a great relationship with them and their husbands.

    My youngest daughter and her husband want children desparately.

    My oldest daughter and her husband have been on the fence on the issue; but recently have decided that their lives won't be complete without them.

    I am supportive of what they want...but really am looking forward to our first grandchild, now! (Still none on the way, that I know of, however.)

    I haven't been in a huge hurry to become a grandmother, but almost all of my friends are now grandparents. I was the first to become a parent, we were blessed with our girls fairly early on in our marriage. But it looks like we will be among the last to have grandchildren.

    My mother-in-law was rude and relentless with us about having children so I vowed NOT to be that way to my children. My parents were happy when we made the announcement but never pushed us either.

    So she wants to have a baby with her son in law? Is she hot??
    And all babies are grand, IMO.

    My response to the MIL would have been: "We'll consider a child when you learn to shut up and mind your own business."

    My MIL was a bit of a PITA on the grand children side. My wife is the oldest of her siblings and the first one married. Fortunately my mom was pretty quite about it because my older brother had delivered the grand child already.

    It doesn't sound like she was demanding that they hurry and have a child, just asking when. He should be proud that mil is anxious to have a grandbaby.

    Okie, she was just doing her job. It's part of a MIL's mission in life to push for grandbabies.

    "Gee ma, grandkids would mean seeing you more, wouldn't it. Don't hold your breath".

    If the old saying is true that the daughter will turn into her mother, this cat is in trouble, because he cant stand the MIL, and I don't think him and his wife are gettin along very well:shocked::faint:

    It is the parents decision. period. I have three grand children. Tell the MIL to mind her own business.
