MIL, why is it that you constantly insist upon one-upping? If we talk about one of our children, then you know of someone (friend, foe, or obscure family members alike) who did something "more". If we talk about someone else's achievement, then you know someone who did something "bigger".

Are you that threatened by someone feeling good about their achievements? I realize that you wallow in misery most of the time, but to want that for your own adult children is sad and sick. We definitely don't let it rain on our parade, but your attempt to do so is noted.

Also FYI we really couldn't care less about random folks who we barely know.
