Today, my wife and I both got released from the hospital. She was admitted for the birth of our daughter. I was admitted with a broken arm from when my mother-in-law shoved me out of the way because she wanted to be the first one to hold the baby after my wife. FML

  • If I was OP's wife I'd tell my mom to back off. From the husband. And especially the baby. I would not want some who JUST acted in forceful, aggressive, and thoughtless way to hold my baby. Especially when the results were injury to the husband. I'd demand mom to leave until she's calmed the hell down and thinks on the bigger level. Newborns are delicate little things. Id be concerned for its wellbeing if I were to let my mom hold it after such a crazy and bone headed move. Unfortunately, I totally see the her just continuing to ignore her son in law and just grabbing the baby from her daughter. I mean. Why not go full crazy when the insanity has already begone (kidding of course). I hope I'm wrong and the mother immediately stopped and apologized and assisted the man she wiped out/injured. Either way, OP'S wife needs to have a big long heart to heart with mommy dearest about boundaries and the like.
