The grandmother changes the name of the newborn: it happens to a young new mother who discovered on social networks that the mother-in-law had presented the newborn with another name
The grandmother changes the name of the newborn
If relationships with the mother-in-law are often very complicated, we can say that for a young French mother they can become really impossible. It happened, in fact, that the grandmother did not like the name chosen by the parents for her grandson and so she decided to change it on her own initiative, leaving everyone bewildered.
The story was told on the Reddit forum by mom:
My mother-in-law doesn’t love me. He never loved me, he will never love me. I don’t try to be her friend anymore. Throughout the pregnancy she referred to my baby as “her baby” or “my grandson” and she didn’t like any of the names we were thinking of giving our baby.
After giving birth, however, the mother-in-law did something incredible: she wrote a post on social media before the new parents could do it to announce the birth of Miles.
Too bad that the parents had chosen the name Emile for the baby.
A mom’s cousin contacted her after reading the post and immediately commented on the grandma’s post congratulating on the birth and revealing the real name chosen by the parents.
At that point the grandmother deleted her comment.
But what did the father and son of the nosy grandmother think about it?
The woman says she has not found a great ally, indeed the new father tried to belittle it by explaining that Miles was just a nickname.
But the young mother was not there: the baby is only 3 days old, how can he already have a nickname? Besides, Miles doesn’t look anything like his real name. “Would you like it if someone called you Michael and instead of your real name” asked the new mother to her partner.
And so she managed to make him think and thanks to her intervention, the mother-in-law deleted the post and the matter ended like this.
The same cannot be said of the relationship between daughter-in-law and mother-in-law who continue to be not exactly idyllic and who have been ruined even more during the pregnancy: the woman says she tried to involve her mother-in-law for all 9 months by sending her ultrasound scans and updates and she only received coldness and sometimes even insults in return.
