13 Things Your Mother-In-Law Won't Tell You/QOTD

A bizarre little list from Reader's Digest. The real fun comes when you add to it.

1. It hurts to be downsized.
 I spent a couple of decades being the leading lady; now I have a character role. 

2. I know he's your husband now.
 But he’s still my son. 

3. You don't seem very confident about yourself.
 The littlest comment from me is taken as a criticism, so I’m very careful what I say around you. 

4. A little gratitude wouldn't hurt.
 Every year, I send you a birthday present, but you never even pick up the phone to thank me. This year, I said, “That’s it. No more.” Yet look at me: I’m about to send another present. I guess that’s how I am. 

5. I want the best for both of us.
 We mothers say to our children, “I want you to be happy.” And we mean that. What we don’t say is, “But I would like to be happy too.” 

6. I know a little something. 
I’ve bought and sold 13 houses in my life. Why won’t you ask for my advice? 

7. When I visit you, I'm just coming to see the family.
 I’m not coming for a white-glove inspection.” 

8. I've got his number.When I really want to talk to my son privately, I don’t call your house. I call his cell phone. 

9. I'm truly appreciative.
 I’m so happy that you allow my son—your husband—to visit
me on Mother’s Day. It’s a long trip and a big expense. 

10. I have a dirty little secret.
 I’m afraid that if I don’t get this right, you’ll cut me off.

11. I'm in competition with your mother.
 She takes you on vacations every year and buys things I can’t afford. All I can do is love you and babysit for you. I hope that’s enough and that it’s appreciated. 

12. I'm lucky to have you! Whenever I stay at your house, you always have my room ready, my towels, everything. You do all the right things.

13. You know me well. 
I cherish the refrigerator magnet you gave me: “Age and treachery will always overcome youth and skill.” 

Your turn: what are some things your MIL didn't tell you? Or things you aren't telling her? Stir the pot? Me? Never! (devil grin)
