am i being completely unreasonable? my husband asked me if we could go to his parent's house for next christmas. they live 3.5 hours away and this is all coming from his mom. i said no because its so hard for us now that we have a baby. she'll be 14 months old then and i really would like her christmas to be spent here at home. plus christmas is huge here. i still have younger sisters that believe in all the magic christmas brings. we always head to my mom's and celebrate our tradition. i know my MIL just wants to spend time with us but i think its just so much easier for her to come here and spend time with us. we ALWAYS go there. plus i dont want to take my daughter away from all the excitement when the inlaws could just come here and be a part of it. she is making us feel guilty and she says she hates it here and won't come. she hasn't seen my husband on christmas in 7 yrs b/c she wont come here.Answer Question

You have your own family now and make your own traditions. Everyone goes through this. It can be hard to separate from the traditions you had growing up and start your own. If you want to stay home, then stay home. She will have to adjust. If you tell her NO now, she'll have all year to get used to it, and possibly come around to visiting you instead. Your baby doesn't need to be driven all around on holidays. Her request is not reasonable.
