I really want mother's day to be about me this year... is that totally selfish? I mean, the past two years it's been all about my MIL. We go over there, lavish her with gifts, fix her meal, and spend the entire day there. I want to spend quality time with MY family.
I can't even call my mom to chat( I call to wish her a happy mother's day, and that's it) on mother's day because we get up and go. And my nana, I didn't have time to call her at all last year.
Am I being selfish? Or do I have a right?

Absolutely not! You are Mommy too and deserve to have a day you want. I go to my MIL and spend 1/2 the day there. And I'm having to do everything I always do daily and then some! And I don't even get an acknowledgement from my MIL on that day! Then we take my mom out. By the time we get home everyone is tired and ready for bed, including me! I'd like a calm Mother's Day this year! I just want to stay home with my babies! Tell your DH that your MIL is welcome to come to your home, but you want your gift to be a day with your family. Tell him to honor the mother of HIS children.
