How would you handle this situation? My MIL is friendly and tries to be motherly towards me… giving life advice, wants to care for baby, asks lots of personal questions. I just don’t feel the same towards her mainly bc we are not aligned on values and she’s a big gossip so anything shared with her will be repeated. How do I maintain a good relationship with her while keeping her at arms length? We live in the same city.
