Many grandparents consider it their duty to spoil their grandchildren. In most cases, their actions are harmless as the children bask in the attention of their grandpas and grandmas. Sometimes, the kids are given some special treats here and there. However, it becomes an issue when the grandparent chooses to break the boundaries set by the parents.

And in the case of this woman, her mother-in-law's definition of spoiling her grandbaby could be considered harmful.

Filing for custody

A mom posted her story on Reddit about how her mother-in-law fed her baby, who was less than a month old, some ice cream and "other very bad things."

Due to this behavior, the parents of the child banned the grandma from seeing the baby.

As a form of revenge, the grandmother decided to file for custody of the baby claiming that the child's mother was abusive.

The authorities arrived at the child's home and saw nothing to back up grandma's claims.

They come check out our home, realize everything is great and my baby is happy and healthy and fat.

The poster said she informed them about her mother-in-law feeding their young child unhealthy things and eventually, the judge didn't grant the woman's request for custody.

The judge basically laughs in her face when we went to court, told her she was denied custody. It was great and I wanted to share.

Reactions

Some Reddit users gave their feedback on this woman's story and many agreed that mother-in-law was out of line.

@nelsondd1 wondered about the outcome the woman was expecting:

What are some of these MILs thinking? Courts don't just believe unverified, fake, stories. Maybe if she wanted to be part of the baby's life she should have abided by your rules. Also, what was DH's response to his mother's behavior?

@tinkingtiger was confused as to why the mother-in-law thought feeding a baby ice cream was a good idea.

I still can't get over the ice cream bit! That much lactose could kill a baby.

@1strwbryshrtck52119 wondered the same thing.

I just cannot fathom why she would think ice cream is acceptable to feed a weeks-old baby. I hope your baby was not harmed in any way.

@shayfreak felt the MIL got what she deserved:

So glad the judge laughed at her.

People can go to the extreme sometimes to exact revenge. Thankfully, the law requires much more than word of mouth to take a child away from their happy home.
