My oldest will turn 5 in Feb. I'm thinking that since Christmas was just a bit ago, and my twins turned 4 on Christmas eve, that I will just have a kid only party for my oldest. My reason being is I feel uncomfortable inviting my family, who just bought a bunch of toys last month. I don't want them to feel obligated to spend the money, once again.
I also have a problem with my MIL. She hordes the attention of my kids, and I want them to learn manners, and to pay attention to guests at the party. When she's around, they don't pay attention to anyone but her, and she doesn't discourage it.
Any advise? And how do I not invite my MIL, or what can I say to her that will not hurt her feelings, but will get the point across.
