  • Even if it causes a fight you must have the conversation with your hubby. Since he invited him, he needs to get rid of him. Just start the convo off calmly and don't let it get out of control. Make sure you gather your thoughts before approaching him. GL!

  • Tell him it's you or the dog! Don't fight over it. Stand your ground, tell your husband that if his uncle is still there by the end of the deadline, you and baby will be staying elsewhere until he is gone. Shame on him for imposing. If you don't want him in your home and around your kids he should respect that.

  • Im sure it is just hard for him to tell his uncle to leave. I hate situations like that because they always have some sob story and you feel guilty telling someone to leave that it is not your problem. Im always the one who gets into situations like that because I feel rude saying no. No matter what he will have to deal with it and if he won't then you will. Maybe you could just tell him (the uncle) that you got a call from a neighbor complaining and that you don't want to be reported and he needs to be out within 1 wk. IDK I would just rather have a reason to make the discussion easier with his uncle than just telling him to leave. I would not be happy with someone living in my driveway either!!
