A desperate mum has shared her frustration after her mother-in-law continually refuses to spell her daughter’s name correctly.
A mum has asked other parents what she should do about her mother-in-law who has refused to spell her daughter’s name correctly for almost four years The Sun reports.
The mum says that the misspelling is no accident and that her mother-in-law wastes no opportunity to use it, with her husband hesitant to confront his mum about the issue.
Just Getting Worse
Despite the couple correcting the misspelling when it appears, things appear to be getting worse.
“Our daughter is nearly four and we called her a name with more than one correct spelling,” the mum said.
“My mother-in-law made it clear from the beginning that she didn’t like the spelling we used and that she thinks that it is wrong. Every time we see her, she brings it up, time after time.”
The mum says that it has got to a point where her mother-in-law is making a deliberate effort to prove her point about the name.
“Her latest trick is to give my daughter lots of presents and address it all to her with the misspelling.”
Comments on the mum’s story pointed out the selfishness of her mother-in-law’s behaviour.
“There are so many issues here,” one said. “She won’t accept the correct spelling of your daughter’s name, she’s crossing boundaries with the presents and now social media.”
“I’d just have it out with her personally,” another suggested. “She obviously doesn’t care what you or your husband have said so bring out the big guns.”
As with all family tension, the thought of an argument is never a pleasant one, but we have to admit that this mother-in-law has definitely taken things way too far.
