my parents are divorced, my grandmother doesn't like my father in law, and my in laws and i are as different as day and night. My husband's grandparents are as conservative as it gets, and my grandmother is open minded and argumentative. I have 3 sisters- in- law but by then it will be 4. I have 3 brothers-in-law, and one more by then. Plus 2 sisters of my own. Every one wants to see her at every little turn and only half of the family will work with me on it. Every one else expects it on their time. What am i going to do???!!!!!

When my oldest (now 15) was a baby my mother told me she only wanted to come to events if she was the ONLY grandparent there. She had issue with my step-mother and was intimidated by my mil. I had to step up to the plate and be the adult... I told her that I planned on inviting EVERYone to every event. It was her choice to show up or not. (her loss).
She missed all 3 christenings, 2 first communions, and possibly the 3rd child's communion (this May). I have done the adult thing... it is her choice to enjoy the children or not.
... she does visit and stay for a week about once a year.
