The ghost can scare who it can....

I cannot stand that my in laws keep bringing up BM's family CONSTANTLY in MY house. On a holiday I am hosting, nonetheless.

I leave the room, table, or whatever and no one notices. If it were my SDs, ok, but it is not. There is no reason for the bringing up either. I hate it. Then they wonder why I don't hang out so much. The sad thing is, I really love my in laws but, the pain is so bad sometimes. It does get better though with time, though. I think of the saying above.

I think I will bring up all of my successful ex boyfriends at next dinner. Or perhaps my past sex life because DH is bonded to BM by sex; theoretically, right?


  1. OMG! I never knew there was anyone that goes through the same crap as me!
    I always think "next dinner or whatever, I will start to talk about my ex's and my past sex life"! It's BS what I have to go through sometimes. I think we have a lot in common! I found you blog by google searching "childless stepmoms" because that is my situation right now.

  2. Unfortunately, there are a lot of women who go through this (childless or not!).
    I hope reading my blog will help you and make you feel less isolated.
    Continue to comment.
    There are many of us out there that really do go through the same things and only those of us going through it can understand!
    There are special seats for CSMs in heaven!

  3. I found your blog today and I am enjoying reading all of these entries.

    This particular topic is a huge issue with me. At EVERY family gathering my in-laws will talk about BM to anyone who cares to listen and and possibly contribute. I am not one of those people. Most people are not one of those people.

    One Christmas, at MY family's Christmas dinner, with people who they had never met before, FIL started into all of the horrible things that BM did to DH years ago. It was so bad that DH stormed out.

    I don't get why they need to keep rehashing her over and over.

  4. It seems like THEY are not over it. Have you discussed it with them NOT to talk about her? It's just very bad energy; all the negativity.
