A young woman revealed how she got her revenge on her meddling mother-in-law after the latter ruined her daughter’s Christmas.
According to the mom in question, her 4-year-old daughter is crazy about everything related to Christmas and happens to be a great Santa believer.
Knowing all this, the girl’s overzealous grandmother decided to ruin the child’s belief by telling her that Santa wasn’t real and that her parents were the ones buying her gifts.
“My MIL doesn’t like me at all. She’s one of the typical moms who doesn’t want her son to be stolen away by another woman, so my existence alone is enough for her to resent me. It doesn’t help that I don’t practice her religion and that we don’t plan on baptizing our children. A mutual decision between my husband and I,” the woman explained in her viral post.
“She sends me bible verses and quotes about being subservient to your husband on a regular basis to get under my skin. After telling her very nicely and calmly to stop once, she had a full-blown meltdown/tantrum about how I won’t let her save me, so I just ignore her messages now.”
Recalling the particular incident that completely ruined the relationship between the mother and the mother-in-law, the woman added: “My mother-in-law was over today and my daughter was asking me to add another random item to her Santa list.
As she heard her say it, she immediately responded to her saying that Santa isn’t real and that me and my husband are who buy the gifts under the tree.”
After the mother-in-law’s “cruel” revelation, the child’s mother confronted her in-law by shattering her beliefs in return and kicking her out of her home.
“She tried to respond that she did us a favor and that our child shouldn’t be thanking a man who doesn’t exist for the nice things we do for her, so I responded that it was a rich statement coming from someone who has spent their entire life praying to a man who ALSO doesn’t exist,” the woman continued.
“I also told her I was very sorry she let the devil breed hate in her heart, then I slammed the door in her face.”
Since the escalated argument, other relatives allegedly reached out to the woman and suggested she went too far.
The mother has since asked the internet for advice on how to handle the fallout and received plenty of support from fellow parents.
“This was absolutely the right decision, that woman does not need to be anywhere near your daughter and I would just try to make Christmas special for her this year,” someone said.
“You can turn this around for your daughter. Just tell her that grandmonster was just kidding and that she’s on the naughty list so she’s mad at Santa. She’s 4 so maybe she’ll forget what g-ma said,” another wrote.
