A new mother has been left furious after her mother-in-law tried to change her baby’s name at the last minute.
The mum was so annoyed about it that she turned to the forum Mumsnet to ask other people if her rage was justified.
“We decided on his name before he was born and I decided a middle name that meant something to me so of course my OH could also pick one if her wanted,” the mum started.
“He didn’t come up with anything.”
However that soon changed when her other half’s mother decided she would like to have an input in the baby’s name.
“In the car on the way to register the baby, his mum is on the phone to him, he’s being very quiet so I guess it’s something he doesn’t want me to know about.
“Next thing I know when we’ve got out the car I’ve got texts on my phone from her saying naming the baby is a big thing and please don’t rush into anything, also please let my OH have an input as it’s important.”
“This name has literally never been mentioned by either of us before and I still have no idea where it came from or why the hell they as a family are sitting there discussing what my baby’s name should be when he is already here and had that name for six days.
“Now he has ended up with Christopher as a random bloody middle name, which would’ve been fine if it was my [partner’s] choice but I know it’s not – it’s hers!”
The original post appears to have since been deleted.
Has your MIL ever done anything as infuriating as this?
