# Birthday Celebrations # Family

Happy Birthday Mommy :)

This is kinda how I always imagined a relationship with my mother in law or in popular parlance monster in law, would be like, much before I had gotten married.. thanks to the countless stories I had heard , innumerable examples that I had seen ..Maybe it’s the nature of this relationship that a mother in law and daughter in law shouldn’t get along or maybe it’s just a coincidence I’d like to presume that the word in-law seems to destruct any potential for a good relationship to grow into something meaningful even before the seed is sown. What so ever maybe the cause of this love-hate relationship, I know I neither liked the effect nor quite understood it and luckily I never have to..

To you, my mommy, I dedicate this poem by Joanna Fuchs, on your birthday and everyday..

Some mother-in-laws are possessive,
Their child they still want to own.
My mother-in-law’s love is like sunlight,
On both of us it shone.

Some mother-in-laws put you down,
They think you’re not good enough.
My mother-in-law shows approval,
Affection, and other good stuff.

Some mother-in-laws interfere,
They think that they know best.
My mother-in-law lets us be,
She’s better than the rest.

And so I just want to thank you,
For being who you are,
You’ve made everything so easy,
As a mother-in-law, you’re a star!
