I had to spend the majority of the day in the same room as my Mother-in-Law, and I could only spend so much of it ignoring her venom and playing with the toddler. Venting gifs ahoy!
Small successes of the day: Gave niece a sparkly mermaid doll that looks like her. Got hilarious video of niece diving head-first into her minion-shaped birthday cake and biting a chunk out of the groin area. (This will be great material to embarrass her with later.) Got MiL to walk back slightly on a racist comment about the way Chinese people eat with chopsticks. Did not commit aggravated assault.
Other people’s family . . . so much fun.
