Small Talk Six




Today’s topic is “6 things (good or bad) that you credit your mother-in-law for.” 

 You can answer this with a list of 6 words, 6 phrases, 6 sentences, 6 paragraphs, 6 photos, 6 videos, etc . . .


Here are my six:
1) Mistrust of organized religion

2) Not celebrating Christmas, Easter, and Birthdays

3) How to have an unsuccessful marriage (actually, it was my father in law who showed him how not to treat your wife and children)

4) The mantra "other people are other people" (i think that's where it came from)

5) his love of Frito pie

6) his desire to have only a few important rules and foster lots of independence in our children

Sounds like you did not win many awards in the in-law department.
Thanks so much for coming by my blog

Man number 1 and 2 must be so hard for you. Hopefully you can start your own traditions without to much struggle.

Agreed. Number 1 and 2 would be difficult for me to deal with.

I love your header.

Not to be a jerk... but my mil is so wonderful, she's annoying. Not actually! She's Godly, gentle, kind, extremely clean and a great cook. The only downside is she did A LOT for her sons...
