A little change to the blog has occurred, which you may or may not have even noticed if I hadn’t pointed them out. M.I.L.D.E.W. and it’s reference to Mothers-In-Law Do Everything Wrong (or is it Mother-in-LawS?). Instead, it is now M.I.L.D.U.E. – Most In-Laws Do Utterly Exasperate.
The reason for the change is two-fold:
1) On more than one occasion I’ve been asked if the stories have to be about the Mother-In-Law, to which the answer is ABSOLUTELY NOT! While MILs are stereotyped as the devil-incarnates, it certainly is not the case for many of us, and certainly not in own marriage (OK, to cut some slack to my own in-laws, they sometimes are just plain WEIRD!).
2) There was a virtual pillow fight with a Liz Bluper and Renee Plastique, the authors of the book Mothers-In-Law Do Everything Wrong: M.I.L.D.E.W., and I have agreed that it was best to trade off to M.I.L.D.U.E. in exchange for some hair-braiding and boob-flashing (that IS what happens during a pillow fight, right?). You can find more about the Liz and Renee at their site.
