MIL seems to have only two states of mind anymore - energetic and engaged when gossiping and complaining about the past or apathetic and sullen if no one is listening to her gossip and complain.
But, I can't listen to the same stories and complaints anymore. My head hurts. Hubby escapes by sitting outside.
What have you done to help your LO entertain themselves?
Assisted living isn't an option. I'm just the DIL and can't convince anyone of anything.
