The Daughter-in-Law Rules

I found an adorable book that I wanted to tell everyone about. The book is called The Daughter-in-Law Rules. Sally Shields gives her readers 101 tips to manage or even make friends with their mother-in-law. Let's face it ladies, some of us can use all the help we can get in this department.

Sally reminds us in a humorous way that mother-in-laws are women with feelings and want the same thing that most women want. So what do we want? I think, all of us want to be loved, appreciated, respected, and needed.

The rules vary from common sense tips that I admit I should do more of, to advice I really need to sit down and decide if I am woman enough to take on! LOL.

Let's be realistic. As much as we may think we are marrying the man and not his entire family, unless you plan to move to Mars with him, you have just gained a new Mom. How you choose to deal with it is totally up to you.
