Have any of you had to deal with this? My MIL is a religious extremist and feels deeply called to proselytize. She's been making these religious things for my baby, blankets and wall hangings and such, that I am really uncomfortable having around me. I don't want to keep her from being who she is, and I know she's doing all these things with love, even though I have explained to her that we don't share her beliefs. Since she is making these things for our child, I'd like to put them away in the back of a closet and give them to my child when he/she grows up. Does this seem like a reasonable thing to do? I feel I need to set limits around this issue with my MIL, but I don't want to be disrespectful, either.
