We've all heard stories of in-laws causing drama, but this one takes the cake! Our protagonist, a new mom, was once close with her mother-in-law (MIL) until she got pregnant. Suddenly, the MIL's attitude changed, and she became obsessed with the idea that her granddaughter looked nothing like the mom and everything like herself and her son. The tension reached a boiling point at a recent family dinner, where the MIL brought a scrapbook to prove her point. But wait till you hear how the no-nonsense grandma stepped in! 🍿😳

MIL's Obsession Leads to Family Face-Off 👊

So, our protagonist's MIL went from being a loving, supportive figure to a cold, distant one after her granddaughter was born. She became obsessed with the idea that the baby looked just like her and her son, completely ignoring the mom's resemblance. At a family dinner, she even brought a scrapbook to prove her point, but the no-nonsense grandma was having none of it. She called out the MIL, who left in a huff, later demanding an apology. But the protagonist doesn't feel bad, and many in the family seem to agree. Let's see what the internet thinks of this wild situation... 🤔
