Not all in-laws want the worst for their children – a lot of them mean well but their stories are not heard because of how many negative stories overshadow them. Today’s story is about a mother who told her son to be hygienic and keep a clean house.

A mother and Redditor, SpiritualProgress938, posted her story on AITA (Am I the A**hole?) to ask if she did something wrong by telling her son that his house is dirty and his wife needed a shower. She wrote:

“I’ve been up all night thinking about this so I hope it makes sense”

“My son and his wife welcomed a baby boy two weeks ago both are 23, my son called me and said would I like to spend a week with them I said as long as it was ok with his wife I’d love too”

“Well I got there he collected me from the airport we talked had lunch then went to his place. When I got there my daughter in law Megan was hurrying around trying to tidy up she told me she only found out that morning I was coming”

“I looked at my son and he went red than said it was time to meet my lasted grand I was walking in I noticed the house was not clean and that Megan hadn’t looked like she showered in days it didn’t sit right with me but I’ve had 12 children so I know things get messy fast especially when you’re tired”

“After meeting the baby my son said ‘I’ll leave you girls to talk I’m just going to pop out for an hour to the gym’ so I asked Megan how she was getting on with motherhood she told me that it was beautiful but she was exhausted with feeds every two hours. It didn’t sit right with me the way she said every two hours so I asked her would she like to nap or do whatever while I look after the baby”
