    My MIL said, “I know someone with one of those.” as she gestured to my son who is 3 years old. I said, “One of what? A hyper kid?” She said “Autistic.” If you could hear the tone of her voice it was so callous and cruel as if it is a bad thing. What I said was, “Awesome! How old? We are trying to find play dates with other toddlers.” She then said, “You really need to put him in daycare so you can get a break from him.” I said “Oh I love being a stay at home mom. I would only consider daycare so my kids can make friends.” (My son really wants a friend haha I am working on it.) I wished I handled it differently. I wish I told her to get out of my house and never come back. I was so taken back and my son was there. I hope I did not send him the message that her behavior was okay. In the moment I wanted my son to know autism is not a bad thing. I have talked to her before about her comments- the only thing she talks about is that my son has autism. It is so annoying. I assume ignorance but I have tried to educate her many times. She insists my husband had autism as a kid and she “cured” him lol… I know my husband would never cut contact with his mom. I have talked to him about it and he has made it clear that he wants her in our kids lives no matter what. I feel I can’t call her up and have a serious talk with her and say “hey we have talked about this before, if you keep talking the way you do you will not see the kids again” because my husband is not on my side and she knows. I do not understand why he does not see how serious this is. I fantasize about finding a way to leave him. Some way I can protect the kids from his mom. I can’t think of anything. If we were divorced if anything she would have more access to the kids probably babysitting them during the week. My husband and his siblings are so brainwashed by her it is really alarming. I feel the same will happen to my kids. Right now I document and date everything in case I ever need it. I feel so trapped. I don’t ever want my kids around that narcissist. I really do not care if my kids are there the next time she mentions how to “cure” my son of autism I will just say. “Their is not a cure and we do not want one. But with therapy maybe you could be cured of being a bitch.”
