Happy Mother-in-Law Day!

Grandparents.com salutes all the special grandmothers who are in-laws, too

By The Editors

Bet you didn't know this holiday existed! But it does, and since 2002, on the fourth Sunday of October, families have celebrated Mother-in-Law Day. (We're sure that its proximity on the calendar to Halloween is completely coincidental.) A lot of jokes have been written about mothers-in-law, but many couples rely on you — their "other mothers" — for child care, holiday meals, and even financial support — so after 364 days of being taken for granted by your sons- and daughters-in-law, you deserve at least one day of celebration.

In honor of your special day, Grandparents.com presents the best of our features on life as a mother-in-law (and grandmother).

Enjoy your day!
